Parenthood stars Peter Krause and Lauren Graham have brought the curtain down on their romance of over a decade.
Lauren, 55, and Peter, 56, played a brother and sister on the show from 2010 to 2015 and became a real-life couple during the first year of the series.
However a representative for Lauren has now informed People that they ‘quietly ended their relationship last year.’

Although the duo never had any children together, Peter has a 20-year-old son called Roman with his ex-girlfriend Christine King.
Peter and Lauren first became acquainted in 1995 while they were both playing recurring roles on the sitcom Caroline In The City.
Between then and Parenthood, Lauren became a small screen star on Gilmore Girls, as did Peter on such shows as Six Feet Under.
As seasoned performers on Parenthood, they were both initially reluctant to jump into a workplace romance with one another.

‘At our age we’d probably both been through “showmances” that went south and made work an uncomfortable place to be,’ she confessed in her memoirs.
‘Ultimately our mutual wariness gave way – it just sort of happened,’ dished Lauren, who was previously linked to Tate Donovan and Matthew Perry.
Lauren told Good Housekeeping of dating Peter: ‘Once we got together, there was no game play. It was like, You like me, and I like you. It gave me an understanding of life: This is how things happen, and it’s completely random.’

Their domestic equation was ‘not a big, loud life,’ she explained. ‘We have a lot of neighbors, people come by, we’re with Peter’s son a lot and we keep it small.’
However during the pandemic Lauren found herself in the unprecedented position of having to spend nearly five months away from Peter while she worked in Canada.
Lauren stars on the Disney+ show The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers, and because the program ‘shot in Vancouver that – and because of quarantine, I couldn’t come and go,’ she revealed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

‘Normally, that’s a two hour flight. You come home on the weekends,’ the Honolulu-born actress explained. ‘But I couldn’t do that so we were separated for almost five months, which had never happened before.’
When she returned home she found that Peter ‘and his son had really bonded, which was fantastic, but I think the reentry was more difficult.’
Lauren quipped: ‘Like, it was more like they were the married couple and I was the person who was like – they were like: “We don’t do it that way anymore.”‘
