Barbra Streisand is an absolute legend in the entertainment industry. One of the few entertainers to have been awarded an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Award (EGOT), Streisand can really do it all.

After getting her start by performing in nightclubs and on Broadway in the 1960s, she soon transitioned to film and won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her iconic portrayal of Fanny Brice in “Funny Girl” in 1968. She continued to have success both musically and in Hollywood, even winning a second Oscar for her work composing music for the 1976 version of “A Star Is Born.” Now in her 80s, Streisand is still a force to be reckoned with.

But one aspect of her life that isn’t in the public eye as much as her career is her love life. She was married to actor Elliot Gould for much of the 1960s, and together the couple has a son, actor Jason Gould. Streisand and Jason even appeared as mother and son together in “The Prince of Tides.”

After divorcing Gould in the early 1970s, Streisand went on to have a couple of other relationships over the next couple of decades with people such as Don Johnson, Richard Gere and Andre Agassi. However, she married the man who would go on to become her longtime husband on July 1, 1998. The pair have been happily married ever since, celebrating more than 24 years together. Today, Streisand and her husband, actor James Brolin, have a wonderful life together and have continued to show that some Hollywood relationships can stand the test of time.

Barbra Streisand (circa 1975), (Silver Screen Collection/Getty Images)Barbara Joan Streisand – professionally known as Barbra Streisand – was born on Apr. 24, 1942, in Brooklyn, New York. She is the daughter of Diana Ida, a woman who once considered a career in music, and Emanuel Streisand, a high school teacher. He met Ida at the school he worked at as she worked there as a school secretary. 

Sadly, Streisand lost her father at a very young age, as he passed away just a few months after her first birthday from an epileptic seizure. The loss was devastating for the family and something that Streisand had to grieve for many years to come, especially once she understood the gravity of not having a father like many of her classmates.

Streisand’s mother later remarried in 1950 to a man named Louis Kind. She already had one older brother named Sheldon, and the marriage gave her a half-sister, singer Roslyn Kind.

As a child, Streisand had big hopes and dreams. She aspired to be someone famous one day. While many people would enjoy the hustle and bustle of New York, Streisand wanted to stray away from Brooklyn and hopefully move somewhere where she could make something of herself. She was known around the neighborhood as the girl that could sing, as she always had a beautiful voice.

While Streisand today is a talent recognized around the world, she had very humble beginnings, as her singing debut was at a PTA assembly. She went on to sing at weddings and summer camp and slowly started to work on finding a way to be more professional with her musical gift.
