For those that don’t know, Lauren and Peter have known each other since the mid-90s when they worked together on a show called Caroline in the City. They started dating in 2010 when they began working together again on Parenthood, in which they played siblings.
Lauren discussed their relationship while appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday (April 8) to promote her new Disney+ series The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers.

Lauren revealed that she and Peter spent five months apart while she filmed the new series.
“Our unique situation was because The Mighty Ducks shot in Vancouver and because of quarantine, I couldn’t come and go,” she said. “Normally, it’s a two-hour flight, you come home on the weekends. But I couldn’t do that, so we were separated for almost five months, which had never happened before.”
When Lauren got back to their home, she says things looked “a little different… There were more piles, I would say.”
Lauren said that Peter was able to spend more time with his son Roman, from his relationship with ex Christine King.
“Which was fantastic, but I think the re-entry was more difficult, it was more like they were the married couple,” she joked. “They were like, ‘We don’t do it that way anymore.’ And Peter started a thing, I guess just to make COVID-life fun, where he’d go to the store and stock up on ridiculous amounts of whatever and leave it in the corner of the living room and he’d call it ‘COVID Corner.’ As if that somehow made these piles of stuff fun or a place to visit or a place to show the guests.”
“So, if you need club soda or paper towels,” she jokingly said. “Come on over.”
