Prior to meeting her other half, Mamie was married to the actor Benjamin Walker – whom she met on the set of ‘Dangerous Liaisons’ in 2008 – however they split in 2013, after just two years of marriage.
The 69-year-old Florence Foster Jenkins actress – who also has Grace, 32, Louisa, 27, and 39-year-old son Henry with husband Don Gummer – has maintained a largely private life, and it’s expected that Mamie will follow suit.
In a rare interview with in 2016, the True Detective star recalled how her mom – who will next be seen portraying a strict mother in the second season of ‘Big Little Lies’ – saved her from an embarrassing Halloween outfit mixup as a teenager.

The actress dressed up as Charlie Chaplin only to find the rest of the party guests not in costume.
She recalled: ‘Mum, without blinking, gave me her leather jacket, put it on over the costume and wiped my make-up off.
‘It was that transition [from childhood to adulthood] that’s so difficult for kids, made within the space of 20 minutes. And she was there on both sides of it. She’s a great mother.’
