It is known that the couple married on 12 December 2012, and that their son, Tennesse was born in 2014; Diane has a daughter from her previous marriage with the late actor Johnny Lewis.

Although all seemed good between Logan and Diane, in April 2019 she filed for divorce, claiming that Logan has cheated on her with another actress whose name she hasn’t revealed.

In May 2022, it seems that Diane decided to share a part of their private life, when she posted on her Instagram a lengthy caption saying: ‘My husband practiced and joked about ‘marriage rape.’ We had an argument and then make up sex, in the pitch dark from behind as my penance outside in the garage’, adding that she told him that it was her fertile day and that he needed to pull out which he refused and she got pregnant.
