Tom Cosgrove Bio, Age, Job, Miranda Cosgrove Dad

Miranda (Taylor) Cosgrove is known for her career on television, particularly for her work in comedy-drama productions, commercials, and hosting. The American actress, singer, and songwriter was included on Forbes magazine’s “30 Under 30” list just last year (2022). Miranda comes from a small family and she has rarely talked about them or shown them to her fans. So, in this writing, we shall tell you all about her dad, Tom and a bit also about her mom.

Meet Tom Cosgrove, Miranda Cosgrove Dad

Despite Miranda Cosgrove’s ever-growing fame over the years, not much is heard about her parents including her dad. Here’s what we just learned about him.

Miranda’s dad is Tom Cosgrove. He is a proud dad one can tell. But there was a time in Miranda’s initial career days when they were really skeptical about her joining the entertainment industry. Never had they thought that their daughter will at one point be the second-highest-paid child actor on television.

Miranda was only three when she was discovered by a talent agent while singing and dancing at the Los Angeles restaurant Taste of L.A. She was with her parents of course. The agent approached them and talked to them about Miranda’s potential, and handed them his contacts.

Anyway, speaking of Miranda and her dad’s relationship particularly, they have been “best buds” since the day she was born (14 May 1993). “I’m so lucky I have this guy as my Dad”, Miranda has said this time and again on social media. Miranda also has gushed about her “hilarious” dad helping her learn her lines at the crack of dawn, his lobster cooking, and about him always being ready with his toolbox to fix anything, hilarious Dad.

Is Tom Cosgrove Still Married To Miranda Cosgrove’s Mom?

Yes. As of 2023, it looked like Tom Cosgrove is still married to Miranda’s mom Criss (née Casey).

Speaking of Criss, she is the daughter of William F. Casey, AKA Bill, (died December 2010) and Ann of Downey, California. Her grandparents William and Mary Casey also were natives of California (Clovis).

Together, Criss and Tom have contributed to their daughter’s Irish, English, and French descent.

Growing up as a child actor, Miranda spent more time with her parents than any average teen as she had to be escorted by one of them while working. So, she always thought she would be happy to move away from them after joining the University of California. But, the opposite happened. After moving out, Miranda really missed them. Initially, it was exciting, but it soon became boring. So, during her time in college, she split her time between her home and her parent’s home. And once she was done with college she started living with them again.

Together, Tom, Criss, and Miranda are a family of three. Miranda has said this more than once, that she is an only child and that she was homeschooled from sixth grade onwards.
