Louisa Gummer Bio/Wiki
Gummer was born on June 12, 1991, in Los Angeles, California, as the youngest daughter of Meryl Streep and sculptor Don Gummer. Gummer is of Swiss-German descent; German-English-Irish through her mother’s side, and Norwegian-German through her father’s side.
She graduated from Poly Prep Country Day School, after which she proceeded to Vassar College from where she graduated in 2013 with a degree in Psychology. She has described her GPA from Vassar College where her mom Meryl also attended as “the biggest prize I’ve ever worn.”
Born into a family with a long history of entertainers, it was only normal for Louisa to carve out a niche for herself in the entertainment industry. From an early age, she accompanied her parents especially her mom to the red carpet and it was clear to all that she had it in her to go far as a model.
Louisa has shot campaigns for big names like Dior, H&M, and more. She has also appeared in Glamour and Vanity Fair. Thanks to her About page on the IMG Models official page, we are able to know some facts about the youngest Gummer.
Her favorite restaurant in the world is Test Kitchen in Cape Town, South Africa. “They have a few different tasting menus, each consisting of lots of tiny courses,” she says. “Chef Luke Dale-Roberts creates innovative, inspired, and creative dishes that are unbelievably good.”
Her best song is Buckets of Rain by Bob Dylan and she also loves “that happy birthday song.”
Speaking about the most beautiful drive she’s ever taken, she said; “Highway 1 up the West Coast from Los Angeles to Big Sur, California. Nothing beats driving on that winding road on the side of the cliffs where pine trees and mountains meet the Pacific ocean. It’s unreal.”

Since her rise into the mainstream, Louisa has never been romantically linked with anyone. Louisa Gummer is fairly active on social media and has never hinted about being in a relationship or even posted cryptic messages about her relationship status. This makes it incredibly difficult to know if Louisa has a boyfriend or not. Fingers crossed till she gets more comfortable to reveal such information to the world.
