No Ordinary Family On Screen & Off: Sara Gilbert's Partner Is Show's Writer


The new ABC action-comedy No Ordinary Family is already winning over the critics and the viewers.  The show stars Michael Chiklis (The Shield) and Julie Benz (Dexter) as a family with Incredibles like super powers. The show follows this family that is certainly not ordinary.  And it’s not just onscreen, the writer and producer of the show has a not so ordinary family as well. Allison Adler is life partners with Sara Gilbert!

Now in many places, a same sex partnership with children is nothing new and has became very very ordinary. But in some places, it’s still a more unique situation. But any family that is able to have two successful careers while raising two healthy children, that’s pretty extraordinary right there, no matter what orientation the parents are.

Sara Gilbert and her partner Allison Adler have been a couple since 2002 and they have two children together, Levi Hank (born in 2004) and Sawyer (born in 2007).  And they were very fair about who had to carry and deliver the babies, Allison gave birth to Levi and Gilbert gave birth to Sawyer.  Before No Ordinary Family Alison worked as an executive producer on Chuck and also had worked on Just Shoot Me and Family Guy.  And while Allison is currently busy with her own family as well as No Ordinary Family her partner Sara is keeping busy too, she is executive producing and co-hosting a new panel talk show for moms called The Talk (her co-hosts include – Julie Chen, Leah Remini, Holly Robinson Peete, Sharon Osbourne, and Marissa Jaret Winokur).
