When Barbra Streisand got bracelet that said “Grandma,” she started to cry

In the 1990s, singer Barbra Streisand met her second husband, actor James Brolin. The couple’s first date took place on July 1, 1996, and it went even better than they had hoped.

They spoke till 3 a.m. and were both undecided about whether or not to lock lips. Streisand subsequently stated that it took her several months to determine whether Brolin was “the one.”

Their budding affair was exclusively over the phone during that time since he was in Ireland directing “My Brother’s War.” However, the lovebirds’ intentions were not derailed since Brolin moved in with Streisand in November of that same year.

On July 1, 1998, the couple married at the actress’s mansion in Malibu, California. The wedding date was changed to coincide with the second anniversary of their first date.

When the pair married, Streisand became a stepmother to her husband’s three children from his two previous marriages: son Josh and daughters Jess and Molly.

Brolin has two children with his ex-wife, actress Jane Cameron Agee, whom he married from 1966 to 1984. He had Molly with his second wife, actress Jan Smithers, whom he married in 1986 but divorced in 1995.

Despite their celebrity, Streisand and the two-time Golden Globe winner wanted to give Josh (now an actor) and his siblings a regular childhood.

Josh spoke candidly about the incident in an interview with Bang Showbiz.com, noting that because he lived a secluded life for the majority of his upbringing, the paparazzi did not follow him wherever he went until he was a young adult.

“My popularity has just recently increased, but I don’t have a horde following me.” “As children, we were isolated from the celebrity since our nearest neighbor was a mile down the road, and I didn’t feel my father’s fame until I left home.”

Josh is now the father of four children, and his stepmother, who also has a son named Jason from her first marriage to actor Elliott Gould, is overjoyed to be a grandmother. Josh spoke about his then-unborn third child with his wife, Kathryn Boyd Brolin, on SiriusXM in June 2018.

When Josh was asked if his father and Streisand were pleased about getting another grandchild, he responded that his adored stepmother was the one who was more excited about her then-unborn grandson:

“When my wife gave her a bracelet with the word “grandma” on it, she burst into tears.”

He revealed that Streisand wrote him and Kathryn emails every day, informing them that she was thinking about potential baby names and wanted their feedback. She also inquired as to when she might visit the couple’s home to feel Kathryn’s baby bump:

“She’s extremely into it, and I appreciate that about her.” This experience has drenched her like a normal Jewish grandmother. It’s fantastic.”

Josh has two elder children: a son, Trevor; a daughter, Eden; and two toddler girls, Westlyn and Chapel. Streisand has a great relationship with her elder siblings, in addition to relating with Westlyn the most and pampering her and her younger sister.

According to TheThings.com, the New York native once revealed specifics about spending time with the older children. She used to cancel all of her appointments in order to spend time with her adult granddaughter, Eden.
