Lauren Graham and Peter Krause have separated after more than 10 years together.
The couple “quietly ended their relationship last year,” the “Gilmore Girls” alum’s rep confirmed to People Friday.
Graham, 55, and the former “Six Feet Under” star, 56, met in 1995 while appearing in the NBC sitcom “Caroline in the City” before landing their signature roles.
“She had me move some furniture into her apartment for her back then,” Krause explained during a 2017 appearance on “Live with Kelly.” “I didn’t catch the signal.”
They also presented together at the 2002 Screen Actors Guild Awards.
The longtime friends, however, did not begin dating until they were cast as siblings Sarah and Adam Braverman in “Parenthood” in 2010.
“One of the things that’s been so fun is that it’s so easy,” Graham said of working with her then-beau in a 2010 interview with Redbook. “It’s a lot to work with somebody and spend time with them, too.”
She added of their romance, “Nobody knew about it for a while because we like to be at home, cooking and not going out. I’ve also been really protective of it because it’s important that you can buy us as brother and sister on the show.”
The actress looked back on the early days of their relationship in a 2017 interview with Good Housekeeping, revealing, “We couldn’t stop talking. Not about ourselves, but about the world and books and family.
“Once we got together, there was no game play[ing],” she explained. “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.”
The COVID-19 pandemic found the pair on different rhythms, as Graham returned home after five months of working in Vancouver to Krause and his son Roman, who had implemented several new protocols in their absence.
“I think the re-entry was more difficult,” she said during an April 2021 appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” “It was more like they were the married couple, and I was the person who … they were like, ‘We don’t do it that way anymore.’ They were like, ‘No, no, no, this is how things happen.’”
