The father, fully named Lynn Loud Sr. (and therefore the namesake of his fifth-oldest daughter), is stern and often calls a halt to his kids' fights, but he loves and cares about them. He also loves his wife and often acts playfully romantic towards her. The mother, whose name is given as Rita in "A Novel Idea", is caring toward her children, but is not afraid to punish them if they go too far. She and her husband of eleven act playfully romantic toward each other, though she is apparently more level-headed than him. In season 2 the faces finally are revealed in "11 Louds a Leapin'".
