While growing up, the producer used to travel a lot due to the nature of her dad’s job. So, in a bid to allow his daughter to focus fully on her studies, Diandra’s dad sent her to a
Switzerland-based boarding school. Upon completing her studies there, she moved to the United States to study at Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, which is situated in Georgetown.

Her Family

Before things turned sour between Diandra Luker and her ex-husband, she was one lucky woman who lived under the same roof and enjoyed a blissful companionship with her Hollywood heavyweight sweetheart. Though they are no longer together, she is still being cared for by their only child.

Michael and Luker met for the first time when the former was just nineteen years old. The occasion that brought them together was the swearing-in ceremony of the former president of the United States of America, Jimmy Carter. Their love for each other was so strong that the multiple-award-winning screen actor popped the question just two weeks after they started dating.

The Hollywood couple eventually tied the knot in the presence of close friends, well-wishers, and family in the month of March 1977. Their union was blessed the following year with a son they named Cameron Douglas. He was born on the 13th day of December 1978, in the city of Santa Barbara, California.
