A tight-knit family

She has a tight-knit family of four where everyone is still living together. 

Constance always kept her children above her career, so she took 15 years off to be with her children. 

They used to take them everywhere they went while they were kids, and still, they are doing the same. 

The whole family has been the support system for one another.

Her father preferred a different  career than acting

People may perceive that she might have been pushed into an acting career since there are two veteran actors in the house, but that is not true.
