There was also a rumor about the two being married when Maria was seen flaunting a gold ring in her ring finger in 2016, but the ring looked more like an accessory than a wedding ring.

Prior to Elijah, the openly lesbian/bisexual actress dated Clare Munn. They were best buddies before dating each other. They were so close that she was made the Godparent of Maria's son Jackson. But their closeness didn't last for long as they split and Maria rekindled her romance with Elijah.

It was in 2013 when she announced that she was a lesbian in an essay in the New York Times. She stated;

I read about the handful of men and the one woman I had been in romantic relationships with, passages rife with pain and angst. It seemed when I was physically attracted to someone, I would put them in the box of being my 'soul mate' and then be crushed when things didn't turn out as I had hoped. As I continued to look through photos, I came across a black-and-white one of my best friend and me taken on New Year's Eve. We looked so happy, I couldn't help but smile, It didn't occur to me, until that soul-searching moment in my garden, that we could perhaps choose to love each other romantically'

Before her announcement, she was engaged to waiter-musician Bryn Mooser in 2011. And during the late 90's she was married to TV executive Dan McDermott. The couple even had a son together named Jackson.
