Sydney has been married to Dorian Heartsong, her longtime boyfriend, since June 2012. Dorian, her spouse, is a musician and the former bassist of the American rock band Powerman 5000. He was known as ‘Dorian 27’ during his time with the rock band and left in 2001 due to problems with the other members. He has composed music for films such as Extreme Ops and Live Free or Die.

The Carter actress said that she dated some sweet gentlemen in the past in an interview with NDailyNews in January 2003.

Eventually, the Bahamian-American actress recognized the musical talent Dorian’s insightful qualities and had a relationship with him.

Back in 2007, when the actress was living in Los Angeles with her musician lover, promoting the virtues of marriage was not one of her top priorities. In June 2012, however, Sydney bucked the odds and married Dorian in an official husband-and-wife partnership.
