Katey Sagal’s Husband Kurt Sutter and Details of His Three Previous Marriages

Decades-long relationships in Hollywood are rare but not impossible, and Katey Sagal and her husband and “Sons of Anarchy” co-star Kurt Sutter confirm it.

Born on January 19, 1954, Katey Sagal grew up surrounded by talented artists as her parents were television and film directors and producers, and some of her siblings pursued acting careers.

Sagal has been involved in the entertainment industry since the 1970s, when she landed minor roles in TV series and movies. She turned to music and worked as a backing vocalist for Olivia Newton-John and Bette Midler.

In the 1980s, she returned to acting and landed a role in Mary Tyler Moore’s television series “Mary.” Sagal’s breakthrough role was Peggy in “Married… with Children”, the show which ran from 1987 to 1997.

Two years later, she joined the cast of the anime series “Futurama” to voice Leela. Sagal also appeared in “Sons of Anarchy”, “Superior Donuts”, “The Conners” and many other successful projects.

Sagal’s impressive showbiz career isn’t the only aspect of her life making headlines, as she has been married to four men. Here’s everything you need to know about her current partner and ex-husbands.

The ‘8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter’ actress is married to Kurt Sutter, and while he’s not as famous as Sagal, he’s also a talented performer.

Sutter is primarily known as a screenwriter, director and producer. The most popular television series he has written and produced are “The Shield”, “Sons of Anarchy”, “The Bastard Executioner” and “Mayans MC”.

Of all his projects, “The Shield” probably holds a special place in his heart. He used the TV series for his acting debut (he played hitman Margos Dezerian) and worked with Sagal for the first time.

Sagal faced medical complications after the birth of her two eldest children.

Speaking of Sutter and Sagal’s relationship, they met through a mutual friend in the early 2000s. They got along so well that he said they should date someday, and she has accepted.

However, her kids kept her busy, so they went on their first date a few months after they first met. Sagal revealed that they never left each other after that first coffee date.

On October 2, 2004, the couple married in a private ceremony held at their estate in Los Feliz, California, and they have been together ever since.


Before marrying Sutter, Sagal previously welcomed Sarah, born in August 1994, and Jackson, born in March 1996, during her previous relationship (more on her three ex-husbands later).

Sarah and Jackson followed in their famous mother’s footsteps and became actors. She made her acting debut in “Sons of Anarchy” in 2011, while he did in “SPF-18” in 2017.

Sagal admitted to being “very protective” of her children when Sutter met them, but he managed to earn the title of step-parent over time.

It is essential to point out that Sagal faced medical complications after the birth of her two eldest children and could no longer carry a child.

Still, she and Sutter wanted to have a child, so they simultaneously explored adoption and surrogacy. The couple weren’t particularly inclined towards either option, so they were willing to accept whichever came first.

Their surrogacy process “came together very easily,” so they went that route. Sagal and Sutter’s only child, Esmé Louise, was born on January 10, 2007, with both parents present at the hospital for her birth.


Before finding “the right one” in Sutter, Sagal’s love life was far from perfect. She was married three times and none of these relationships lasted more than ten years.

Her first husband was Freddie Beckmeier, the founder of the Beckmeier brothers and member of the band Full Moon. The former couple married in 1977 and separated in 1981.

Sagal’s second husband was also a musician. The “lucky one” was Fred Lombardo. Unfortunately, their relationship did not stand the test of time and they divorced in 1989.

A year later, Sagal began dating drummer Jack White. She became pregnant in 1991, but their baby girl, Ruby, was stillborn eight months into the pregnancy.

The actress confessed that she couldn’t understand the loss of a child at this stage of pregnancy and continued to think she had done something wrong.

Sagal and White married in 1993 and didn’t give up on having children, so they welcomed Sarah and Jackson before splitting in 2000 due to “irreconcilable differences”. Katey Sagal and her husband met soon after; the rest is history. What a handsome couple !
