Diane Ladd has had a string of bad luck in her personal life. But it was all in the past, and owing to her current marriage; she is now in a much better place.
Actor Bruce Dern was Ladd’s first spouse, with whom Diane Ladd was married for nine years, from 1960 until 1969. She and her have two children together. The actress has been candid about her failed marriage to him. The 85-year-old confessed in an interview with Parade magazine that her first marriage ended due to the loss of their first child. Their first child, a daughter, died at the age of 18 months after drowning. The former couple attempted to cope with the catastrophe, but the sadness was too much for them to take, and they split up.
Moreover, she has stated that the loss of her first child caused her to be an overprotective mother to their second daughter, Laura. Despite being a watchful dad, Ladd insisted that Laura pursue her ambition of becoming an actress.
In 2018, the loving mother posted an Instagram snapshot of her daughter with the poignant message, “Watching my kind, caring, talented, beautiful daughter who fights for all of us.” Laura, I’m really proud of you.” Despite the fact that her first marriage did not work out, she appears to be on excellent terms with her former husband, to the point where she has directed him in a film. She’s even made light of it, saying, “I say, ladies, if you want revenge, direct your ex-husband.”
It’s also been a privilege for her to work with him, according to the actress. She even joked that while Dern may not have been a terrific spouse, he is a fantastic actor. William A. Shea, Jr. was Ladd’s second spouse, whom she married four years after her first divorce. But, once again, it did not work out, and she divorced him in 1976. She is not married to him and has no children.
