Glover is close to his parents, who celebrated their 43rd anniversary at the Wynn Las Vegas in October 2022. Glover’s father (@glover_rich on Instagram) posted a photo of the happy couple on his page. On the pair’s 42nd anniversary, Glover wrote alongside an Instagram photo of the couple:

“You continue to show me what love is and what it isn’t. How selfless, understanding, challenging/hard, but ultimately how beautiful it is. You promised each other and kept it all these years. I believe in it bc of the two of you. I love you both so much.”

Glover and his dad seem to enjoy playing golf together. “One of the greatest joys in life is getting to play this silly game of golf with this guy,” Glover wrote on Instagram in late June 2022. “I’m so frickin’ thankful for moments like this one. Love ya pops!”
