Since October 1996, she has been married to David Tyler Fisher. They share two children, Justin and Cameron.

Graduated cum laude from Tufts University, Fernanda received a Master of Fine Arts degree in acting from the University of Southern California.

Her famous mother, Rita, said in an interview that being the parents to a lone kid enabled them to open their hearts considerably more once their grandchildren were born, as reported by Closer Weekly.

"Being an only child means that we poured all our love in [Fernanda]," she told Grand Magazine. "I keep thinking I can't possibly love any more than I do now, and I do."

Rita was once romantically involved with actor Marlon Brando.

Rita also said that her grandchildren, Justin and Cameron, are their hearts and souls and that they are the air they breathe.

Rita, whose career has spanned more than 70 years, was married to Leonard from 1965 until his demise in 2010.

PEOPLE recently asked the award-winning actress if she'll ever make another trip down the aisle, and she answered that she would prefer to "eat glass."

Rita reiterated that she wouldn't like to get married. The actress said that she didn't feel free in her marriage.

"I come from an era where you are supposed to obey the man in the family. I didn't know how to write a check for the longest time," she added.

Rita was once romantically involved with actor Marlon Brando. However, their relationship was tumultuous because of his infidelity.

Rita achieved the rare feat of winning the four major North American entertainment awards — Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony. Her notable films include "Singin' in the Rain" and "The King and I."
