Meryl Streep is now a grandmother! The 69-year-old actress has become a grandmother for the first time as her eldest daughter Mamie Gummer and fiancé Mehar Sethi have welcomed a baby boy, according to reports.

A representative for Gummer confirmed to USA Today in December that the 35-year-old 'True Detective' star — who shared the screen with her famous mother in the 2015 film 'Ricki and the Flash' and 2007 film 'Evening' — was expecting her first child with Sethi, a 36-year-old producer.

During a recent discussion, the 'Big Little Lies' actress opened up to Glenda Jackson for Interview about becoming a grandmother. "I’ve been working like mad for quite a while, so I’m getting ready for my first grandchild. My daughter’s having a baby in February, so I’m going to go out and ruin her life. I specialize in unsolicited advice."

Not much is known about the baby boy and his name has not yet been disclosed. Gummer and her family are extremely private, so the news remains to be confirmed by her reps. Gummer isn't active on social media either. The reports further added that Gummer and her fiancé Sethi got engaged last August.

Gummer is one of the four children of Streep, 69, and her husband Don Gummer, besides Mamie, there's Louisa, 27, and Grace, 32, as well as son Henry Wolfe, 33. Gummer was previously married to actor Benjamin Walker but they broke up in 2013 after two years of marriage, according to E! Online.

When it comes to their ongoing projects, it looks like the mother-daughter duo are busy making waves at HBO with Gummer just finishing a run on 'True Detective' opposite Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali and Streep being the highly-anticipated addition to the second season of 'Big Little Lies'.
