The location was also where her mother's funeral was held in 2000 after she dies aged 41. Her son Astala turns two later this month and Phaedra will be one just three days later, which would have been the 54th birthday of her mother Paula.

In August 2008, she married American musician Max Drummey at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas. They announced a separation in February 2009 and Max filed for divorce in April 2011 in Los Angeles, California citing irreconcilable differences.
