Courtney ‘s parents got married for the first time in December 28, 1957. they split up 3 and a half years later and their divorce was finalized in April, 1962.
They didn’t stay apart for long but before that happened her mother found love in the arms of Richard Gregson with whom she got married on May, 1970, her older sister Natasha was born on September 29, 1970, they split up a year later. Courtney also has another sister Katie Wagner from her father’s marriage to Marion Marshall.
Courtney’s parents reunited in July 16, 1972 the date of their second wedding, Natalie gave birth to her daughter Courtney in March 9, 1974 the same year Wood’s movie The Cracker Factory was released. Sadly by the time Courtney was 7 she suffered the tragic loss of her mother.
After her mother’s death her father got involved with Jill St. John, after 8 years dating they finally got married in May, 1990, when Courtney was 16, they get along just fine. A very important person in Courtney Wagner’s life is a woman named Willie Mae, her beloved nanny who Courtney said is the person who very much raised her.
Growing up with Mum and Dad felt like being in a fantasy world. I was always entertained — quite mesmerized — by them. Maybe it was because they had this real connection and great love, and it was always so much fun. I’m not sure that I really understood the magnitude of who they were.
I don’t remember very much about my mother. I do remember her laugh and the way she smelt, and I remember her hands — things like that that made me feel close to her. Today it’s strange to see her in, say, Splendor in the Grass, as I didn’t know her then. But to see her in my favorite movie of hers, The Cracker Factory, which was made after I was born, that’s what I remember her to look like.
