Rafa Cannavale is famous as a celebrity kid. He is the son of Gloden Globe and Primetime Emmy-nominated actress Rose Byrne

His father is American-born Emmy-winning actor Bobby Cannavale

The meaning behind his name

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, his father revealed the reason for naming him, Rafa. 

According to his father, he had not given one of his children a Latin name yet, and since he holds a Cuban root from his mother's side, he wanted to honor the mother's side of the family. 

And also, he and his wife were constantly watching every game of Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal and keeping up with him, so they were like, how about Rafa that goes all with his older brother Rocco? That was it.

His parents are yet to get married

His parents started dating in 2012 after meeting through a mutual friend. 

They have played together as a married couple on the rocks in the 2014 comedy-drama Adult Beginners but are yet to get married. 

Since they have been together for so long, there is a constant question about why they are not getting married, which Cannavale thinks is a matter of concern for their parents, not theirs. 

During an interview with IN Style, Cannavale said he doesn't understand why people care and why they give a shit. The only people that should care are her parents and his parents. 

If they don't care, then why should others, he added.

It's not that they have not intended to marry but that something always comes up. 

They had their first baby, then another, and it was like that for them, she explained in an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald in 2021. 

She also said she loves weddings and respects that totally, and for them, they didn't do it; they will do it, then the pandemic happened.

Though not married, they prefer to call one another husband and wife. 

It's easier to say husband and wife as boyfriend and girlfriend feel so young, Cannavale said in an interview.

How many siblings does he have?

Rafa has an elder brother, Rocco, who is two years older than him. 

He also has an elder half-brother, Jake, from his father's previous marriage to an actress Jenny Lumet. They were married from 1993 to 2003. 

Jake is in his father's footsteps. He is an actor and musician and also appeared with his father in season four of Nurse Jackie, where they played father and son. 

Jake, at the time,was in high school.

Similarly, his mother was previously in a long-term relationship with an Australian writer, director, and actor, Brendan Cowell

They called it quits in 2010.

Cannavale and Byrne talked while appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert back in 2020, while all about the Off-Broadway play Medea, where they play husband and wife, and raising their two kids. 

Cannavale said Rocco is the sensitive one and is always singing and dancing,while Rafa is the tough one,and because he is crazy, they call him Seal Team Six. 

He recalled Rafa grabbing this brother's hair from the moving box for not letting him be in, pulling him out by the hair, and crawling inside the box. 

He was inside the box laughing,and his brother was outside crying; he said he
