Meghan Trainor’s brothers live with her and her husband


As we discussed yesterday, Meghan Trainor is about to release her third album, Treat Myself. She’ll support the album with a big tour and then she’s going to take a break and hang out at home, where she and husband Daryl Sabara will work on starting their family. The only hitch in her plan is she and Daryl are going to have a hard time finding the alone time they need to actually make the baby because Meghan’s two adult brothers live with them. Say what now?

Meghan Trainor‘s brothers are more than just her family — they’re her roommates, too!
That’s right, the “All About That Bass” singer’s brothers Ryan, 27, and Justin, 24, live with her and her husband Daryl Sabara at their home in Los Angeles. But don’t worry: The boys don’t get in the way of their, uh, happy newlywed life.

“No, the doors are soundproof!” Trainor, 26, says with a laugh in the new issue of PEOPLE. “They have their own side of the house — we call it the man cave — so I barely see them. I would be very sad if they moved out. Everywhere I go my family comes with me.”

Indeed, after Trainor and Sabara, 27, said “I do” in a romantic backyard wedding in December 2018, Trainor’s brothers (and parents Kelli and Gary) joined the newlywed couple for their Bora Bora honeymoon. And Ryan and Justin have joined the Grammy winner in the studio, too: Both are credited as co-writers and backup vocalists on her new album Treat Myself.

This is one of those it wouldn’t work for me, but it works for them situations. I adore my brothers, I love spending time with them and if circumstances brought us to it, we could make it work, but I really hope that never comes to pass. (I will, however, suggest we all move in together just to freak them the hell out.) However, Meghan wants her family around her. In the Nikkie de Jager tutorial I referenced yesterday, Meghan’s mom is with her off camera and Meghan talks to her throughout. Plus Meghan can afford a house large enough to not be on top of each other so, have at it, I guess. I can also see how living together would help if they are co-writing her songs. The skeptic in me says this living arrangement will change once those brothers marry, though. I doubt their spouses will want to live in the Trainor compound. And don’t Meghan’s brothers make fun of her husband? That must be fun for him… 24/7.

I struggle more with the group honeymoon, to be honest. If they live together, work together and were probably inseparable right before the wedding, wouldn’t she be jonesing for an excuse to be alone? I’m not even talking about sex, either. The best part of my honeymoon was not having to coordinate anything or anyone post wedding planning. Just someone asking, “what time should we meet for breakfast,” might have pushed me over the edge. But, Meghan had a low-key, backyard wedding on her birthday so maybe she didn’t need the break.

And I’m glad she has soundproof doors but if I remember my early marriage correctly, a bedroom was just a suggestion in those days.

    Her album is already out. Came out last Friday.

  2. Ali says:


    I could never have my family live my husband and I.

  3. Froggy says:

    My one married friend always had her sister over. When my husband made a joke to her about whether her sister was also coming on a dinner date we had planned with her and her husband, she actually said if you were married to him, you’d want a buffer too. They divorced less than 2 years later.

  4. MissG says:

    My younger brother lived with my husband and I for almost 3 years. We all got along really well, still do. I would let him move back in a heartbeat. Now my older brother…no way. Never.

  5. Bella Mama says:

    If had the money, I’d build a commune for my family and closest friends to be able to live together.

    If the house was big enough, I would love to live with my family.

    In fact, my cousins grew up in a 3 family (3 floors and the basement) with my two aunt’s families each on a floor and my great aunt and uncle on the first floor. It was a great way to grow up.

    Different strokes

  6. Astrid says:

    Yup, I’m in the camp of those with “if I had enough money for a big enough place, friends and family could join me”. We had family with on our honeymoon cruise. It was a blast. I love my husband and his family is great. The more the merrier.

  7. Joanna says:

    No way I would live with family if I didn’t have to. Right now, I’m staying in my mom’s house along with my brother. Mom lives across the street with her husband. I went to the bathroom in the middle of the night (naked) and my brother came out of his room at the same time. Ewwww!

  8. lunchcoma says:

    Wouldn’t work for me, but sounds like it works for them.

    I will say that it’s a way that a family member who has far more money than everyone else can lend a hand without putting people on an allowance. LA is expensive, especially for young people starting their careers.

    No way in hell I would ever live with my family. My mother and I had a shitty relationship for years and finally we are getting along. When we lived together it was pure craziness, I love coming to my own house, my sanctuary where I’m able to relax and think but most important ignore my phone.
    I been married for a short time now and it’s difficult enough to get adjusted to my hubby and I sharing the same space and leaning about our ticks, having more people in the house just creates more tension… at least that would be for me.
    Saying this, I lived with my sister when we both were single ( we moved out of my mom house together) and we loved it. She is the only family member that I would ever live with.

  10. just a small town girl says:

    my sister lives with me and my husband. it has good sides and bad, for sure! I think if we had a bigger house it would be infinitely more bearable; when we first moved in together it was her and I, then my husband came back from college and it was all of us in a tiny 2br apartment. That was bad. Then we started renting a house, which made things better in a lot of ways.
    She’s got a really difficult personality sometimes, but she’s still family and the benefits (hella cheap rent) outweigh the struggles dealing with her personality.

    I do miss being able to do what we wanted where and when we wanted, as far as early marriage though.

  11. Gigi La Moore says:

    It’s nice to see a tight and loving family. If they like it, I love it.

  12. mash says:

    yea my brother and I are volatile due to his issues and his jealousy….and my mom is a alpha domineering spit fire….so living together with them was crazy…

    newlywed and its honestly the best thing just Mr. Mash, I, and Doggie at the end of the day

  13. Charfromdarock says:

    I lived with both my brothers separately as adults, for years in my younger brother’s case which was a bit too long in a normal size house. When he got engaged I told his fiancé she wasn’t allowed to send him back.

    If we had a large mansion with separate wings, I wouldn’t care if they lived with me forever.

    I live with my sister, my husband, and two kids, it’s amazing. (We’re all in our 40’s, and have Almost always lived together,(but she moved out when she got married, and moved back in 6yrs later when she separated/divorced her husband), from the time I first started dating my husband. My brother even lived with us for a few years too. It helps that we all get along, and we have very similar personalities. I will be sad when my sister moves out.
    I grew up with having my aunts or uncles and cousins living with us, there was always someone within the family living with us, so it’s a normal environment for me.

    My (soon-be-ex-) brother-in-law lived with my (soon-to-be-ex-) husband, my daugther and me for just over a year. I actually loved having him with us; he was super helpful with my daughter and around the house. My daughter loved having her uncle there, too. The only downside? I had to wear a bra around the house 24/7. Lol.

    I now have my mother living with me. She has dementia and there is NOTHING fun about it.
    I never imagined I’d be 50, single and living with my mom, but life is weird that way.

  16. Borgqueen says:

    I wouldn’t mind buying a big properties and have houses for each of my 3 siblings on it and meeting in the middle of the property at the pool for family parties

  17. Marigold says:

    I would totally have my brother with me if I could. If I had a large enough home, there are several close-like-family friends and my actual brother that I’d enjoy having in the same house with me. /shrug. Different strokes.
