More recently, she recorded songs for Disney's animated series Phineas and Ferb in 2009, in addition to her occasional live performances.
In 1987, Easton appeared on several episodes of Miami Vice as the wife of Don Johnson's character. Other acting work followed through the years, including a cameo in the 1993 film Indecent Proposal, a co-hosting role on a Las Vegas morning show in 2003 and a regular role on PAX's Young Blades in 2005. Easton also ventured into musical-theater gigs, including Man of La Mancha and Grease. The pop diva didn't stop at singing or acting, either; she also tried her hand in business by creating a line of angel figurines in 2000 that were sold on QVC.
While Easton seemed to flourish in many areas of her professional life, she had many challenges in her love life. Her first marriage, at 19 to Sandi Easton in 1979, lasted only eight months. Shortly after moving to the United States in 1981, she wed music-industry booking agent Rob Light; that union fizzled after a year and a half. Easton later had a whirlwind romance with nature-film director Tim Delarm and married him in 1997, after a courtship of just a few weeks. One year later, the two split in a messy divorce. Marriage No. 4, to Beverly Hills surgeon John Minoli, survived just one year as well.
Despite not being lucky in love, Easton has found great joy in motherhood. She adopted a son, Jake, in 1994, and daughter Skylar in 1996. "I'm really happy right now," she recently stated, according to the website sheenaeaston.co.uk. "What lights me up is being a mom and singing. That's what I'm about now. It's not about what's going to make me the most famous. I don't care about that kind of stuff anymore."
