Previously Housebroken Dog Has Started Urinating and Defecating in the House

I have a 11 year old female golden Lab, who over the last few months has been urinating and pooping in the house. This is since my daughter has moved back in the house with her boyfriend and baby. Could this be psychological or her age? What can we do?

It could be stress related for the dog especially at the age it is. Also, just a coincidence maybe that a health issue is present near the same time the household change took place. I'd check with a vet just in case.

Thank you guys for your advice! I actually changed her food to a brand with no corn or wheat and only filled her water bowl half way. She has not had an accident since. And she is warming up to the new baby, she used to stay away from him. We also just moved into a house from an apartment, with a large fenced yard, she now has free reign and can potty at her leisure. Again, thank you for your feedback, it was indeed helpful.
