Betty White, a beloved Hollywood icon who passed away just before her 100th birthday, had an impressive career in entertainment. However, her personal life was a bit less fortunate. She was married and divorced twice and had no biological children, citing her focus on her career.
She did become a stepmother through her marriage to Allen Ludden, with whom she had a great relationship, but tensions reportedly arose between her and his eldest daughter Martha. Despite the initial strain, Betty and Martha reportedly reconciled, and all of Betty's stepchildren were invited to her 98th birthday party. Betty felt blessed to have her stepchildren in her life, according to her close friend Sandra Bullock.
