The relationship between Frank and his partner and friend Mike became a subject of public debate when the rumor that they were gay speeded like wildfire.
But the rumor was unfounded and lie. Since Mike is already married to his wife Jodi Faeth, they have been together since 2012 and are blessed with a daughter, Charlie.

There’s no precise information about his romantic bond with Jodi, however, and it’s mysterious if the couple is still together or have divided their ways. But the social media posts from Frank illustrate his relationship with another woman, Diane.
Diane’s intimacy with his partner is flaunted through several posts and pictures on social media. He shared a photo of his partner back in January 2015 with a caption,
“My gal showing off a prototype of a shirt we might be printing. What do you think? Who is ready to buy some Born To Bundle gear?”

As a child, he even made money by selling some of his finds. By the age of 14, he collected around $4,100 to buy his dream motorcycle—a 1964 Harley Davidson!
