Husband and Fighting Cancer
Acuna married Brian Daniel Boyd in 2004. Unfortunately, in 2009 her husband was diagnosed with cancer. Then, in 2022 she posted on her Instagram that he had been free of the disease for 13 years.
"Our @briandboyd is 13 YEARS CANCER FREE. This last year brought new and different challenges to our family, for sure. And with each one, the grounded nature in which he applied his hand brought us all back to Earth," she confessed.
In addition to that, she also talked about other ailments the family faced during the pandemic. "Not only did cancer suck, all those years ago, it traveled with two insidious diseases that also visited his body and our home."
Acuna concluded by being grateful that her husband and family endured the hardships together. "My dear husband, and partner in everything, fought and walked through the pain. Step by step, day by day, breath by breath. He is here, and we are all so grateful. Love you so very much."

Acuna gave birth to their first child, Sofia, in 2004 and their second child, Mario, in 2006. In addition, she is also the mother of three step-sons from Brian's previous marriages, Noah, Daniel, and Adian.
In 2017, on Twitter, Acuna was commented for having lazy eyes. She responded to the tweet by claiming that one of her eyes is smaller than the other, which causes the perception of a 'lazy eye.' Besides that, she has not disclosed her eye condition or injury.
