Moyer also has a son, William (Billy) from his previous marriage born in 2000 and daughter, Lilac, born in 2002.

Moyer has dealt with alcoholism in the past. He has been sober for 14 years and has said that the addiction stemmed from his roots in British theater, emulating the public images of personal heroes like Peter O’Toole. At a CLARE Foundation dinner he stated, “There’s this rush that happens from doing our job, this whirring buzz, and you want to continue that buzz." He now works with CLARE Foundation (a southern California non-profit facility) to help others with rehabilitation and sobriety.
