In 2015, Birgen attended the SNL 40th anniversary celebration, to honor her father. When talking about the special, Birgen said, “It’s just heartwarming for me to see, after all these years, that he is still remembered and admired.”
According to Distractify, today, Birgen is married and, like her brother, mainly lives her life out of the spotlight. She and husband, Brandon, got married in 2018, in Italy.
In 2016, Birgen posted a photo of her father on Instagram, in honor of Father’s Day, and she wrote a touching tribute to him that read, “As another father’s day comes to an end, I remind myself that no matter what, I’m very fortunate to have had a number of great father figures in my life. but this dapper dude will always have my heart.”
According to ABC, Sean lives as an artist and musician.
