Is Tanya Tucker Married To The Father Of Her Children?

Tanya Tucker is a country musician who has successfully transitioned from a star child performer to a full-blown artist. Yet, call it the price of fame or a series of misfortunes, Tanya’s love life never got successful like her musical career.

However, Tanya doesn't need a partner to find love when she has children who adore her.

She is one of the few musicians who has maintained her fan base throughout her career.  However, she's known to be unsuccessful in her love life. Is it possible? Of course, it is not, as she has three children who love her beyond everything. 

If we want to know the father of her children, then we have to go back to the 80s.  Tanya was in her early thirties and wanted to settle down.

Tanya crossed paths with actor Ben Reed while searching for her perfect husband. Tanya dated Ben for several years and became the parents of two children, Presley Tanita Tucker (b. 1989) and Beau Grayson Tucker (b. 1991). Everyone expected them to get married, but they had to break up due to personal conflicts. 

After breaking up with Ben, Tanya was in an on-and-off relationship with Nashville musician Jerry Laseter. However, this time, Tanya was able to get engaged to Jerry in 1997. But they were in an on-and-off relationship which hindered their engagement.

They did welcome their daughter Layla LaCosta Tucker in 1999. The same year, the couple got engaged again, but due to Tanya’s busy schedule, they never married. 

In the interview with The Morning Call, Tanya admitted that they didn't set a date because they intended to be married in October, but she was so busy that it caused conflict between them.

Despite sharing children with both Jerry and Ben, Tanya chose not to get married. Her fear of going through divorce contributed to her decision not to marry. In many ways, music was the only constant passion in her life.

Before having children, she was deeply in love with someone.

She was in her early 20s when she first fell in love with singer Glen Campbell. Glen was freshly off with his divorce from his third wife when Tanya met him. 

They made a perfect couple who were adored by their fans and even shipped them with the ‘it’ couple. But, Glen’s substance abuse issues took a turn on the lovebird's relationship. After being together for almost a decade, the duo parted their ways in the early 80s. 

Despite the separation, the Love's the Answer hitmaker maintained a close relationship with her once-husband prospect. 

While Glen went on to get married for the fourth time following the split, Tanya never enjoyed a similar privilege.

Tanya loved Glen so much that when Glen passed away in 2017, she released a song titled Forever Loving You in his memory.

Even though she could not enjoy getting married, her children have never made her feel the absence of a partner.
