Sagal was married to Jack White and they had two children, Sarah Grace (b. 1994) and Jackson James (b. 1996), before they divorced in 2000. Sagal had a pregnancy with White that was written into the Married... with Children plot line. Sadly her daughter, Ruby, was born stillborn in 1991. The pregnancy was then regarded as a "dream" on the show. She married Kurt Sutter in October 2004, and they had a daughter, Esmé Louise (b. January 2007), through a surrogate mother.
