Abigail Spencer's 15-Year-Old Lookalike Son, Roman, Is Taller Than Her in Rare Pic

The Extended Family star has a not-so-mini-me.

Abigail Spencer has a 15-year-old son named Roman who is her spitting image — only a little taller. 

How to Watch

Watch Extended Family Tuesdays at 8:30/7:30c on NBC and next day on Peacock.

On March 23, the Extended Family star shared snapshots of herself and Roman spending quality time together. In the post, we get to see her cradling a dachshund while Roman wore a hoodie that said ''SK8 Rat.'' Then, they take a spin on a Ferris wheel together while she playfully teases him.

''Skate🐀 & Road🐕 ‘s. 🎡'' she captioned the post.

In a February interview with NBC Insider, Spencer disclosed information about her and Roman's busy schedule. 

“I haven't been able to see [Extended Family] in real time just 'cause we've been traveling,” she told us.

However, she opened up about a special moment where his son truly witnessed his mom's talent for the first time.  

"Timeless was really the first thing I did that my son could watch. He’s watching the show and he’s like, ‘Mom, you are such a good actor … you're right here, but you’re different up there. I believe you.’ I got very emotional. I thought that was very sweet,” she said.

Meanwhile, in a December 2023 interview with ScreenRant, Spencer discussed how the experience of playing Julia on Extended Family has been for her. 

''I feel so fortunate as an actor walking into this world to walk into that kind of support. I also was so drawn to Julia because she is at the center of a storm. She's keeping a lot of plates spinning at the same time. I really feel like at the core of her is that there is enough love. There's enough love for the kids, there's enough love for her ex, and there's enough love to meet a new person. Really, she's just trying to make it all work,'' she told the outlet. 

''It's been really fun to play someone who is so together fall apart and try to keep this all going. The kids are the glue keeping us all together. Much like what Jon said, to be able to share another way to do divorce just as an option. I feel this format is really digestible. Hopefully, as people watch it, they have a good time, but they're like, "Wait, I saw that thing on Extended Family. I'm going to try it over here," she added.
