Parenthood's Erika Christensen and Sam Jaeger reunite

Julia and Joel forever!

Posted on

Not so long ago, rooting for Julia and Joel Graham to get back together was pretty much a full-time job. And now they have!

Parenthood stars Erika Christensen and Sam Jaeger — the actors behind the show’s Joelia — were reunited this week at the Napa Valley Film Festival. Christensen posted a photo on Instagram of her former TV husband beaming at her five-month-old daughter, Shane.

“This man is not the father of this child,” she wrote. “#joelia.”

Parenthood aired for six seasons, concluding in January 2015. Despite some significant bumps in the road (this is a drama TV series, after all), Julia and Joel’s marriage ultimately ended as it began: pure #RelationshipGoals.

This man is not the father of this child. ❤️❤️❤️#joelia

Christensen welcomed Shane, her first child with husband Cole Maness, on June 21; Jaeger welcomed his fourth child with wife Amber just a few days later on June 26.
