On 25 November 2009, Terrie and Joey got married in a low-key wedding. It was Terrie's first marriage, but the same can't be said for Joey Diaz, who was previously married and got divorced in 1990.

The woman's identity is concealed, but they had a daughter together. The divorce strained the father-daughter relationship, making Diaz succumb to substance abuse.

Joey was 27 years old when he got divorced from his first wife. He waited for around 19 years before giving it a shot with Terrie. Since then, the couple have been together for over a decade.
