Jeremy Allen White was born in New York City on 17 Feb., 1991. The "Bear" actor — who is currently rumoured to be romancing Rosalía following his split from Addison Timlin — is the son of Eloise Zeigler and Richard White, who were both theatre actors pursuing careers on Broadway when he was born.

While Jeremy isn't super vocal about his family life, he has spoken out about his love for his mum and dad on a few public occasions. After winning the award for best TV actor for his role of Carmy in "The Bear" at the Golden Globes in January 2023, Jeremy honoured his parents with a touching shoutout. "My parents, I love you! Thank you for making me feel like this was possible," Jeremy said as the crowd applauded.

The following month, his mum accompanied him to the 29th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, where they looked adorable as they posed for red carpet photos together. Later that night, Jeremy took home the award for outstanding performance by a male actor in a comedy series.

Speaking to Vanity Fair in February 2023, White shared how Zeigler keeps him updated on the chatter surrounding him on Twitter. "I really don't pay too much attention to it," he said regarding the attention he began getting following his role of Carmy on the smash FX show. "My mum tells me what they're saying on Twitter, which is nice. I've been acting since I was 18. I was on this show ['Shameless'] for 11 years that was popular, but I wasn't getting as much attention then as I am now."
