Spouse & Daughter
Talking about Bruce's married life, between 1957 and 1959, he was married to Marie Dawn Pierce. He and his former spouse Marie's marriage didn't bear any children.

Undeterred, the duo welcomed their second daughter Laura Dern five years after the tragedy. But by then, their marriage was beyond repair. In 1969, Bruce and his then-spouse Diane parted ways.
Laura is a recipient of a Primetime Emmy Award and four Gloden Globe Awards. She, like her dad and mom, is a Hollywood legend. In 2010, the trio made history by being inducted on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at the same time.
