In 2006, Diamont was voted No. 1 on the Sexiest Soap Hunks of All Time list at the Shrine to the Soap Hunks.

Diamont was also a cover model for Playgirl magazine twice, in 1988 and 1995.

He is active with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and has a niece afflicted with the illness.

Don was named "Sexiest Veteran Soap Actor" by People Magazine in 2009.

Personal life

Diamont is the son of Judy (née Diamont; died 2006) and Albert Feinberg (died 1987). He has three siblings, two sisters Bette (died 1998) and Elena, and one brother, Jack (died 1989).

With his, ex-wife Rachel Braun, he has four sons. Diamont married his long-time girlfriend Cindy Ambuehl in Eze, France on June 12, 2012. They are parents to twin boys. He also raised his late sister Bette's son.

His son, Alexander, nicknamed Zander, played quarterback for the Indiana University football team.


Diamont began using his mother's maiden name when he began acting and modeling after an agent suggested that it was more "rhythmical," but in fact because it was less obviously Jewish-sounding.

In the August 15, 2006 edition of Soap Opera Digest, Diamont discusses his Jewish background and discloses that he did not fully embrace his Jewish heritage until later in life. Coincidentally, his storyline on The Young and the Restless (head written by Lynn Marie Latham & Scott Hamner) has paralleled his personal life in some ways. The show has revealed that the persona of "Brad Carlton" is actually "George Kaplan." (For dramatic purposes, the show has explained this by disclosing that George/Brad had to hide his past, and his Jewishness, for his own safety.)
