She is the widow of kung fu movie star Alexander Fu Sheng, who died in a 1983 car accident. She and her late husband had no children; however in 1987, Tseng gave birth to a daughter, Melody.

Tseng has also clarified her close relationship with her daughter, occasionally referring to her as a 'friend' rather than a daughter-mother relationship.
In addition to singing, Tseng is a successful entrepreneur and has also acted in several films during the 1970s and 1980s.
