She married Evan Gottlieb and they have had a daughter in 17 May 2007, whom they called Louisa Simone Gottlieb. She has had her maternity leave until September 7, 2007. In 2012, she filed for divorce from her husband. Sources claimed that the divorce would have taken place even earlier, if it wasn’t for their daughter. However, the sources are not confirmed, so it is not known whether the information was accurate or not. Recently, she has been rumored to be romantically involved with Josh Elliot, who is believed to be her boyfriend. However, her divorce is said to have been a nasty one, because of several problems that the couple met regarding their home.

Since her marriage has failed, she has been living with her daughter in other home than the one they used to live as a family.

Other sources claimed that the two stars only meet as friends, not as romantically involved persons.
