The relationship between the 9-1-1 star Gavin McHugh and his family shows that one doesn’t need any blood ties to be related. He was adopted at the age of two and a half from Riga, Latvia, by his adoptive parents, Michael McHugh and Lisa McHugh.
Unfortunately, there are no details on who Gavin McHugh’s biological parents are. Nevertheless, the talented and inspiring actor has embarked on a journey with his new family making tons of memories along the way.
Has a Supportive Family
As stated above, Gavin was adopted by Michael and Lisa when he was two and a half-year-old. He is the youngest among five in his family.
The talented actor has got two elder brothers, Flynn McHugh and Logan McHugh, and two elder sisters, Shea McHugh and Lia McHugh.
Many might already know that Gavin McHugh lives with cerebral palsy. When he was just starting kindergarten, his family decided to move to Los Angeles from Atlanta in 2015.
They took that decision to pursue better acting opportunities for the older McHugh siblings. On the other hand, Gavin was fighting to overcome several physical limitations caused by his cerebral palsy.
He was also adapting to new physical therapists and school life. Furthermore, Gavin also used to tag along with his brothers and sisters for their auditions.
And after some time, the 9-1-1 star asked for his own audition. It was surprising at first, but Gavin started getting many opportunities.
In addition, he and his family have appeared in national commercials for multiple events and organizations, including Lincoln Financial, Walmart, and Adventist Health.
The adorable folks share a loving bond with one another. They also help Gavin to memorize lines, and his father calls it a family affair.
