Katey and Kurt exchanged their vows in a private ceremony on October 2, 2004, that took place at their beautiful home in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Los Feliz and these two lovebirds have been together ever since then.
After marrying Katey, Kurt became the stepdad of her two kids. Sagal gave birth to her first child, daughter Sarah Grace in November 1994. Her second child, son Jackson James joined her earthside in March 1996. Sarah and Jackson followed in the footsteps of their starlet mom and decided to become actors.

Katey Sagal and Kurt Sutter welcomed their first child together via surrogate in 2007
Katey Sagal had some medical issues after the birth of her two eldest kids, so unfortunately she couldn’t carry another child. When Katey Sagal tied the knot with Kurt Sutter, she was 50 years old and she had two kids from her previous marriages. In 2017, Sagal told People magazine that the pair was first reluctant to have a child.
During a 2017 interview with People magazine, Katey stated “When Kurt and I first got together, he wasn’t interested in having any more children. He was happy being the stepparent to Sarah and Jackson. But he’d never had his own biological children, so about five years into the relationship we started toying with the idea of maybe we should raise a child together.”
Then, one day Katey and Kurt decided that they want to have a child. So, the couple began exploring different options as Katey couldn’t carry another baby. They pondered over the options of surrogacy and adoption.
