“We do not miss a game — either physically or on TV — and we have BTN2GO on our phones,” Louis-Dreyfus told The Chicago Tribune earlier this year of watching her son play for her and Hall’s alma mater. “It’s just a matter of our production schedule. If we can be there, we are.” 

Louis-Dreyfus added, “We think [Charlie] is outstanding in every regard. We’re his biggest fans.” The couple are also parents of Henry, 24, who attended Wesleyan University and is now pursuing a career in music.
