Rupert Hummel Edit
Rupert is the ex-husband of Meredith. The couple were married since they were in their twenties. By the time their kids were teenagers and young adults, they began to drift apart after Meredith was betraying him by having affairs including Jo's eighth grade biology teacher Mr. Santiago. They later went on to marry different people.
Jo Calligaris Edit
Jo is the daughter of Meredith. She hasn't had a good relationship with her daughter, neither of her kids. She always thought it was best for her kids if they would get married to wealthy people so that way they'll be happy. Shortly after Jo divorced Nathan, Meredith threatened to cut off Jo's money if she didn't get back with him. So, Jo broke free from her mother's cage where during her senior year of college at John Hopkins, she met and fell madly in love with Matteo Calligaris. Meredith wasn't aware of this at the time and years later, was shocked to find out that Jo had three teenage daughters.
