Erin Angle is mostly famous for being related to celebrities, who have surrounded her since her childhood. She is the wife of Hollywood actor, Jon Bernthal, and a niece of two WWE wrestlers, Kurt and Eric Angle. Let’s find out more about Erin’s personal life, nursing career, children and net worth.
Early life and family
Erin Angle was born in 1977 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania USA, and holds American nationality – the precise date of her birth is still unknown. Erin’s mother’s name is Cindy Abbondanza Angle; her father is Dave, one of four siblings of Kurt Angle, a popular WWE wrestler. Erin’s grandparents’ names (from father’s side) are Jackie and David Angle. Just as her father, Erin grew up in a big family, with four sisters – Kristen, Lea Angle, Cassidy and Jackie, and a brother named Mark.
Erin spent her childhood and youth in her hometown of Pittsburgh, however, after she married her husband Jon Bernthal, she moved to Ojai, California, where she now lives an apparently happy life with her kids and husband.
Celebrity uncles, wrestlers Kurt Angle and Eric Angle
Erin is lucky to have two celebrity uncles who are both famous for their wrestling careers.
Kurt Steven Angle (born on 9 December 1968) grew-up along with his four older brothers and sister Le’Anne (died in 2003). He became a famous actor and a professional wrestler assigned to WWE. Kurt debuted on a wrestling show in 1996, and then signed a contract with the World Wrestling Federation (which later became WWE, World Wrestling Entertainment) in 1998.
Kurt had a very successful wrestling career, and won 21 championships in total. In 2017 he made a comeback to fighting, but soon retired for health reasons.
Another of Erin’s uncles, Eric Angle (born 8 August 1967) was also a popular wrestler, though his career was not so successful as his brother’s. Eric debuted in World Wrestling Federation in 2000, appearing along with his brother Kurt in a fight against The Undertaker on “Survivor Series”. Both brothers were wearing the same wrestling clothes to confuse the Undertaker and switched places to stay up longer. Later he appeared in several wrestling shows from time to time, but was badly injured and after a few operations decided to quit wrestling.
In 2019 he was arrested for an assault on a 12-year-old boy, whom Eric tossed by the neck and choked, and was caught on several cameras.
Erin matriculated from her local Canon-McMillan High School in 1995. Then she entered Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and graduated in 1998 with a BA in nursing. By the end of 2008 Erin graduated from the University of Southern California, getting an MS in anesthesiology.
Being a well-educated medical worker, Erin served as a trauma nurse from 1999. Later she worked in Washington at the Georgetown University Medical Center in the position of a nurse. She also had large experience working at the Stanford University Medical Center and USC University Hospital. After 2008 she worked as a nurse anesthetist at the Harbor UCLA Medical Center.
As of 2019, Erin quit her job to become a full-time home-keeper and mother as she has three kids, she decided to dedicate all her time to them.
Personal life, husband Jon Bernthal
Erin has been married to her husband Jon Bernthal for almost nine years already, though they met much earlier, around 2006. The couple married on 25 September 2010 in a private wedding ceremony in Potomac, Maryland, only inviting people who were close friends of the family; later Jon posted several photos from the ceremony on his social media profiles. Erin has given birth to three children: sons Henry (born in August 2011) and Billy (born in January 2013), and a daughter, Adeline (born in February 2015). Both Jon and Erin kept all the details about their future kids a secret, not even revealing their gender before they were born.
Erin is a well-known supporter of her husband, and calls herself his Number One fan, cheering all his acting achievements and awards.
