Before Frally, Ben was married and divorced twice. 

He married songwriter Anna Goodman, whom he met in first grade at Moore Elementary School in Winston-Salem

They were married from 1987 to 1992 but stayed on good terms after their split. Ben calls her his oldest friend and the one who inspired him to play music. 

After Anna, he was briefly married to Kate Rosen.

Ben, in an interview with Sydney Morning Herald, said his idea of being married is that it’s happy and one sticks with it, but it didn’t work out that way. 

He also said that he did pretty well in his music career, and his kids aren’t F***ed up, so he got two things right so far, so he is just going to concentrate on those two things. 

Similarly, in an interview with Billboard, he said he finds it offensive when he is being asked about him being married four times and divorced four times, explaining that they have no idea what went on with each of those relationships, what it meant to him, or not. 

According to him, he felt like it was viewed as some rock star womanizing thing, but it was a F***ing knockdown, drag-out, horrible time in his life. 

I was also ashamed of my decisions, he said. 

He has a twin sister 

Louis has a twin sister, Gracie Scott. They were born just two months after their parents’ marriage. 

They were born in Adelaide, South Australia. Gracie was born almost three hours after him. 

His father apologizes to him in the song “Still Fighting It” from his 2001 album Rocking the Suburbs

Ben, in an interview, said he always appreciated the lyrics as some of his trademark toss-away snark, but realized in sobriety that it’s much more than that and that he finds himself mentally apologizing for some of the personality traits at almost five years.

He also said at the time that he worries his children are going to end up like him: easily lost, scared, and born with that layer of skin that everyone else seems to have in the world. 

He also wrote a song “Gracie” for Gracie on his 2005 album Songs for Silverman and often performs two songs together live. 

His sister Gracie is a singer-songwriter. 

Both Louis and Gracie performed a cappella version of their father’s song “Effington” for the album University A Cappella.
