Her paternal grandparents are Anne and Steve Gilford. Zach Gilford, once said in an interview that daughter, Zeppelin’s middle name is inspired by his grandmother- Adele Gilford. The mutual love and respect Kiele and Zach had for their grandmother wanted them to include the name. Zach stated, ‘it just felt right’, when asked about daughter’s name.
Father- Zach Gilford has often gotten candid about moments with daughter, Zeppelin. He mentioned that the idea behind her beautiful name was his wife, Kiele Sanchez, also mentioning about how the couple often addressed their daughter with her name after the 6th week ultrasound.
He further went on to state how he had moments where he would tear up watching the adorable daughter and mother duo bond with each other. He referred to her as a ‘mama lion’- who looks at their daughter with sheer delight and adoration, silently reassuring she would always protect her daughter.
