Joan Cusack became famous after her comedy and romantic roles in various movies and television series. Being the elder sister of Hollywood's famous actor John Cusack, she certainly holds her own ground despite her brother's popularity.
Apart from being a great actor, she's a dedicated mother of her two boys and wife to husband Richard Burke. Her family is always by her side, be it happy or sad times.
Today, let's take a close look at Joan's family and take a dive in her personal life.
Joan Cusack And Richard Burke-Living Blissfully Since 1993
Getting married to the right person is one thing that every person desires for in this life. Some get it in their first relationship whereas others face's a little heartbreak before finding the one.

But eventually, everyone finds it. Joan is pretty lucky in this aspect as she found the right one without having to go through any problem.
In a content ceremony with few close relatives as guests, the couple tied the knot in 1993. During that time, Joan was already an established actress and got nominated for numerous awards.
Joan's husband Richard isn't a now show either as he's a big attorney based in Chicago.
The basic foundation of the couple's relationship is to compromise. Both of them knows how to handle any problem in their life without overthinking and blaming it on one another.

Maybe that's why we never heard about any divorce between them. The chemistry between them is outrageously strong.
And to top it all of, the couple is a proud parent of their two boys.
Giving Her Children The Best Upbringing
They welcomed their first child, Dylan John Burke on June 17, 1997. We couldn't imagine the amount of joy and emotion that burst out of their eyes and heart after their boy's birth.
But they also knew that a big responsibility is lying on their shoulder now.

Their sweet family of three became four after the birth of Dylan's younger brother Miles Burke, in July 2000. As she's a great actor, Joan is also a caring mother.
She loves her children with everything but whenever necessary, she's sometimes strict as well. In an interview with the Guardian, when asked about her children's upbringing, she stated,
"As a parent, you have to figure out how to shape your kid's character. You want to have human beings who learn about good character. You have to be able to see your child with clarity, see the good side and the bad side of them, and work on the bad side and make them better so they fulfil their potential."
If there's any celeb who knows how to properly instill good habits and motivation to their respective child, then it's her.

Just like any normal household, the family of four goes out and enjoys their time together. Joan even brings her clan in various red carpet events as well. The family of four lives at their residence in Chicago.
We wish that they stay like this for many years to come and Joan's children make her proud.
