EARLY YEARS OF MARRIAGE

After Bette tied the knot with the performance artist Martin in Las Vegas, she experienced more exposure in her career, and the pressure spilled over into her personal life.

However, the couple chose to stay together and work on their issues. Bette revealed during a 2014 appearance on "Good Morning Britain" that they found common ground when they decided to have a child.

CO-PARENTING

The lovely pair welcomed their first child, Sophie von Haselberg, in 1986, and Martin's colors in fathering unfolded. Gushing in an interview in 2014, the actress said Martin was the best father that ever lived.

Bette's daughter admitted that she never wanted to be an actor, which was what her mother wanted.

The Hawaii-born-and-raised star and her husband instilled in their daughter values such as responsibility, patience, and the ability to breathe amidst hard times.

BEING A MOTHER-IN-LAW

In the latest issue of Closer Weekly, Bette shared that it was quite exciting and lovely to be a mother-in-law to her daughter's husband. The "Ruthless People" actress added that Sophie and her new partner are joyful lovebirds, and that gave her abundant happiness.

During an interview with "Town and Country," Bette's daughter admitted that she never wanted to be an actor, which was what her mother wanted. She tried out a lot of careers but ended up acting and featured in some Hollywood blockbusters.

Bette definitely knows how to get results, having only recently bagged a Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical. This same attitude is what has kept the 74-year-old's marriage and family strong.
