She and Bernthal commenced their relationship even before he found fame and fortune in his career. Read on to know more about this lady who stood by her man through thick and thin.
Erin Angle’s Bio
Erin Angle was born in the year 1977 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She spent her formative years in Pennsylvania and completed her education at Canon McMillan High School. She thereafter attended the Indiana University of Pennsylvania and obtained her Nursing degree in 1998. Angle’s educational pursuits did not stop at this juncture. She also obtained a Masters in Anaesthesiology from the University of Southern California in 2008. Since leaving school, Erin Angle has built a commendable career as a trauma nurse and anesthesiologist. She has worked at hospitals such as Georgetown University Hospital, Mass General (Boston), and Stanford University Medical Centre. Her working experience also extends to the Harbour-UCLA Medical Centre.

His wealth stems from his accomplished acting career which has seen him feature in movies such as The Wolf of Wall Street, Fury, The Accountant, Baby Driver, Wind River, and Widows. Bernthal has also enjoyed enormous success on the small screens, appearing in TV series such as The Walking Dead, Daredevil and The Punisher.
Erin Angle is married to Hollywood actor, Jon Bernthal. Her husband is a native of Washington D.C. and was born on the 20th of September 1976. He first started out as a member of the Moscow Art Theatre (Russia) before going on to study acting at Harvard University. He thereafter commenced his acting career in 2002. Angle first met him in 2000 at a welcome-home party thrown for him after his sojourn in Russia. The actor was immediately smitten by her beauty and came over to introduce himself. The two got talking and eventually started dating.
At this time, Bernthal was still building his career and Angle was willing to relocate with him to cities (such as Boston and L.A.) where he could get decent opportunities. The couple, however, broke up and Bernthal spent a significant amount of time trying to win her back. He would leave poems and flowers in her car but all to no avail. Angle eventually reconciled with Bernthal after he took her to a Willie Nelson concert and even got the legendary country singer to dedicate a song to her. Since this reconciliation, the couple has been together and have been waxing stronger. They tied the knot in Potomac, Maryland, in September 2010 and the ceremony was witnessed by their friends and loved ones.
Erin Angle and her husband have three kids together. They are Henry (b. August 2011), Billy (b. January 2013) and Adeline (b. February 2015). The couple’s youngest child, Adeline, suffered from a terrifying health scare in 2018; she had an unexpected seizure and spent three days in a coma. It later turned out that the condition was brought on by encephalitis, an inflammation of the brain tissue. During this trying period, Angle was a pillar of strength and support to her family. The experienced nurse did not panic but rather held up her entire family with love and courage.
