Corinne played Mouch's biological daughter, Lizzie Shaffer, in a guest appearance in Season 3, Episode 17 ("Forgive You Anything"). She reprised her role in Chicago Med Season 4, Episode 20 ("More Harm Than Good").

"Both of my daughters have been on the show. My older daughter played my biological daughter. There was a storyline where there was an information leak, and I was a sperm donor father, that type of thing," Stolte told Parade in 2021.

"And my youngest daughter was, I think, the first person rescued in the pilot episode," he said. "She’s now a freshman at Arizona State, but she was small enough that Jesse [Spencer, who played Matt Casey] handed her off to David [Eigenberg, who plays Christopher Herrmann] after they crawled out of a residential fire."

Who is Christian Stolte's daughter, Corinne Anderson?

Stolte became a first-time father in July 1994 with the birth of his eldest daughter, Corinne Anderson. 

Like her thespian father, Corinne fell in love with the camera, working both on and off-screen throughout her career. According to her IMDb, she's worked as a camera production and digital utility assistant on over 30 episodes of Chicago P.D. In 2017, Stolte posted a heartwarming picture on the set of P.D., posing alongside his daughter in his firefighter uniform.

"Working with my daughter Corinne Anderson today on her show, a little number called Chicago P.D.," Stolte captioned the Instagram post.

Aside from her One Chicago tenure, Corrine has also worked on several films as a production assistant, including Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014), Jupiter Ascending (2015), and Anguish (2015).

According to her Instagram, Corinne resides in sunny Santa Barbara with her husband, Seth Thomas, and their three adorable children. 

How many grandchildren does Christian Stolte have?

Through Corrine, Stolte is a proud grandfather to three young grandchildren named Margot Eden ThomasElodie Mae Thomas, and Odin Arlo Thomas. Their mother shares photos of their childhood highlights on a family Instagram account (@thethomaschildren).

In April 2023, Stolte shared an adorable outing with the grandkids with an Instagram slideshow documenting the children's experience at a Harry Potter exhibit in Chicago. Aside from the pictures of the kids having a downright magical experience, Stolte dropped the most darling fact about his family — his grandchildren call him "BombPop."

"I think they had almost as much fun as I did!" Stolte captioned the heartwarming post. "They all declared themselves Hufflepuffs, but they’re fickle about such things, and I don’t think they’re ready to make a commitment like that. Also, as we all know, it ain’t up to them."

Who is Christian Stolte's daughter, Greta Stolte?

Based on a 2018 Instagram post from Stolte documenting his driving lesson with his then 15-year-old, Greta was born around 2003 and is a current student at Arizona State University. Stolte's youngest was bitten by the acting bug at a young age, joining her father in the entertainment industry with several television appearances. 

Based on Greta's IMDb, she guest starred in the series Sirens as Caitlyn in 2015. Greta also gained recognition with her role as Darby in the 2023 horror flick Perpetrator.

Set to graduate from Arizona State University in 2025, based on her Instagram, Greta has been living it up as a college student, sharing several travel pictures with her friends amid exciting career updates. 

In September 2023, Stolte shared a heartfelt tribute to his daughters on Instagram, showing Greta and Corinne some love. 

"Happy National Daughters’ Day to those who celebrate. Please enjoy these photos of my national daughters," Stolte's caption teased. "They’re a couple of talented, hard-working, kind and funny young people. I don’t know where they get it from. Unless maybe they inherited it from me, biologically. That would make sense."
