Why Duke Keaton’s Mother, Diane, Never Got Married?

Though Duke Keaton’s mother, Diane, has dated showbiz stars like Woody Allen, Al Pacino, Warren Beatty, and others, she never exchanged wedding vows.

During a 2010 interview with Katie Couric, Diane explained why she never married anyone. The Oscar winner said:

 “I think the reason I didn’t get married was because I would have to compromise too much. . . . I wanted to try more adventurous things for myself.”

The Godfather alum yearned for a “strong and substantive” relationship, but when she couldn’t find one, she opted to start a family on her own.

Despite the ups and downs that come with being a single parent, Diane did an outstanding job raising her children on her own. To this date, she has no regrets about being a single mother, except one: she couldn’t give her children a father.

In 2012, the Annie Hall actress said:

‘As a parent I provide all I can, but I think in the best possible scenario you need to have a man.’

Though Diane may regret not providing her children with a father, there’s no denying the fact that she gave everything to her children. And honestly, she is the best parent one could ever have.
