Since meeting her husband Mark Webber on Twitter in 2012, the couple have gone on to welcome four children, Bodhi Rain, born February 2014, Forest Sage, born December 2016, Poet Lake, born April 2019, and Prairie Moon, born August 2021.
Teresa and Mark are also parents to Mark's son from a previous marriage, 16-year-old son Isaac Love. During the couple's December 2013 nuptials in Mexico, Isaac served as ring bearer at Teresa and Mark's wedding, with the ceremony incorporating Christian, Buddhist, Hindu and Native American traditions.
The couple's wedding also marked the beginning of their life as a soon-to-be family of four. Speaking to WHO at the time, Teresa shared, “I always thought I wouldn’t want to be pregnant at my wedding, but I love it. It’s beautiful to know our baby was there with us, and I’ve never really been that traditional.”

Following the arrival of her youngest daughter Prairie Moon in 2021, Teresa shared a heartwarming tribute to her children on Instagram, writing, "No words can describe what it means to me to be given the gift of motherhood."
Reflecting on her parenting style, Teresa has shunned traditional gender norms and remarked on how her son Bodhi had been confused for a girl because he has long hair and happens to enjoy doll houses and playing princess dress-ups, as well as race cars.
"I don’t define Bodhi or my other sons by their gender, I just love them as the beautiful soulful and adventurous children that they are," she wrote in a blog.
The actress added that she loves the "beautifully progressive and loving world we live in" where people can "both fight for gender equality and embrace the idea of not being defined by our sexual organs."
"This is the reason why I remind myself that the commentary on the gender of my children is outdated, silly, and can be disregarded."
" I just love the vibrancy of my life."
It's clear to see that Teresa is a fan of alternative baby names, and she admitted in a blog that she likes "earthy, unisex" names that are also "a little unique."
"I’m partial to a two-syllable first name and a strong one-syllable middle name," she wrote on Your Zen Mama.
"Both my boy's names are connected to nature, trees in particular. I was always climbing trees as a kid, 'tree' even became the way people shortened Teresa as I was growing up, so it’s always had specific meaning to me."
