Esme Louise Sutter (born January 10, 2007; Age 17) is the daughter of Kurt Sutter and Katey Katey Sagal, who are both Hollywood celebrities.
Being born into fame has the advantage of turning one into a celebrity before they even choose a career path. Esme Louise Sutter is enjoying that perk currently as the daughter of a renowned screenwriter, director, producer, and actor (her father) and an actress (her mother). She is the only biological child of the couple, but she has half-siblings from her mother’s previous relationship.
How Old is Esme Louise Sutter?
Esme Louise Sutter was born on January 10, 2007, as the only child of her parents, and she is currently 17 years old. She was born in the United States into a Caucasian background with celebrity parents – Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter and Rebel actress Katey Sagal. Her family background and birth status make her an American citizen.
Esme’s name (Esme) has French origin and means beloved, while her other name Louise is an Old German name that means famous warrior. While she is the only child born to her parents, Esme is far from being the only child in the family. She is actually the third child as her mother has two children – a boy and a girl, born in a previous marriage. The family now lives together as one.
Now 17 years old, Esme is still within school age and is probably enrolled in a prestigious institution, but the details are not public knowledge. Considering that Esme is a celebrity kid, her parents might intentionally hide the details of her education for security reasons.
Who are Her Parents?
Esme’s parents are movie stars, with her mother recognized as an American actress and singer-songwriter. Katey Sagal’s role as Peggy Bundy in Married… with Children (1987–1997) is responsible for bringing her to the limelight. Her other stellar performances can be seen in the roles she played as Leela on Futurama (1999–2003, 2008–2013, 2023), Cate Hennessy on 8 Simple Rules (2002–2005), as well as Gemma Teller Morrow on the FX series Sons of Anarchy (2008–2014) which she worked on with her husband Kurt.
Kurt Sutter, on the other hand, is a renowned American screenwriter, producer, actor, and director. He is credited as the creator of Sons of Anarchy and its spinoff Mayans M.C. which he wrote, produced, and directed while also playing a role on the show.
Is Esme Katey Sagal’s Biological Daughter?
Yes, Esme Louise Sutter is definitely Katey Sagal’s biological daughter, but she was born through surrogacy. When her parents got married, her father Kurt Sutter wasn’t interested in having children. He was contented with his wife’s two children, to whom he played stepfather roles. The arrangement looked perfect for a while until the couple had a change of mind.
Five years into their relationship, Katey and Kurt started considering having a child of their own, and since age was a hindrance for her to conceive, they opted for adoption. What sounded simple and easy at first turned out to be a rather tedious process, and soon, they had to ditch adoption and go for surrogacy.
Esme’s mother was 52 years old when she welcomed her into the family. Katey told People how overjoyed she was with the arrival of her baby girl, especially after suffering the tragic stillbirth of her first child Ruby Alexandra during her previous marriage. Having a new baby was a big challenge for both Katey and Kurt, with all the attention newborn babies demand, but it didn’t take much time for them to settle down to the reality of being new parents.
According to Katey, Kurt actually took it like a champ. He was the one assigned to cut the cord after Esme’s birth while Katey held the baby. He is now enjoying spending quality time with his baby girl. Esme is quite the typical daddy’s girl.
Does Esme Louise Sutter Have Siblings?
Esme Louise has no siblings from both parents, but she has two half-siblings from her mother’s previous marriage. Katey Sagal was married three times before she met and married Esme’s father. Her first and second marriages to Freddie Beckmeier (m. 1977–1981) and Fred Lombardo (m. 1986–1989) didn’t produce any children.
It was during her marriage to Jack White (m. 1993–2000) that her older children – Sarah Grace White and Jackson James White. Her children from her third marriage would have been three if her firstborn child Ruby Jean White didn’t pass on at birth.
Both Sarah Grace and Jackson James are involved in the entertainment industry. Sarah Grace White is an actress known for the role she played in ‘The Bastard Executioner’ (2015), ‘NCIS’ (2003), and ‘Family Week Jacklyn’ (2021), among many others. Her journey in the movie industry is just gathering up steam, and she has not shown any sign of slowing things down.
Esme’s half-brother Jackson James White, named after his actor father, is also an actor in his own right. He made headlines for joining the cast of ‘Tell Me Lies’. He became popular through his role as Ash Baker in SPF-18. Other movies and television shows under his belt include Mrs. Fletcher, Ambulance, The Space Between, and more.
Katey Sagal’s Daughter is Yet To Forge a Career Path
At 17 years of age, it is expected for Esme to indicate interest in the entertainment industry already, but that is not the case yet. She has not shown any sign of following the family legacy to enter the entertainment industry, and her parents don’t seem to mind or push her.
Esme is quite close to her family members as she is often seen with her parents or siblings. She loves spending time with them, and it is presumed to be just a matter of time before the acting bug bites her. For now, she is enjoying the perks of being the youngest in the family of five and daddy’s little girl.
For her hobbies, Esme loves to go on hiking trips with her family. She also loves to travel for fun, especially with her mom and sister as companions. Esme is a dog lover and owns a dog herself. The celebrity kid is yet to register her presence on any social media platform, suggesting that her parents are still shielding her from public scrutiny.
