More than just a celebrity spouse, Naomi Nelson is no stranger in the entertainment industry. She has more credits behind the camera and is thus not easily one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood. Just like her famous husband, Naomi has also worked on both the small and silver screens. Join us in unearthing all the interesting facts you never knew about the actress, screenwriter, film producer, celebrity spouse, and homemaker.
Naomi Nelson Bio, Age
Naomi Nelson is apparently a private celebrity spouse who shies away from the spotlight when possible. While there is a scarcity of information regarding her birthplace, parents, family background, early life, and education, we do know that she is an American born on August 20, 1980. Moreover, going by her physical features, it is obvious that Naomi is of mixed ethnicity.
There is no information about Naomi Nelson’s educational endeavours, thus it is difficult to determine what influenced her career choice. Again, it is uncertain if she tried her hands on other jobs before venturing into Hollywood. As per public records, Naomi Nelson’s earliest known job was behind the camera. She debuted in the industry on the small screen as a crew member of the TV series Carnivàle. Nelson worked as an assistant producer in all 12 episodes of the HBO series. She has since followed up with a variety of other TV series and films.
Besides Carnivàle, Nelson is best recognized for her work on the documentaries Reel Grrls 2009 Productions (a fusion of different short films) and as a writer, assistant editor, and star of the documentary Fifth Star. Naomi Nelson is presumed to have gone on a self-imposed hiatus since after her marriage. She is believed to have switched careers to a full-time homemaker as she hasn’t been involved in any Hollywood projects in recent years.
Family – Kids
It is no news that Naomi Nelson is happily married to her heartthrob Johnny Knoxville. There is a dearth of information regarding the couple’s romance from the outset. However, it is believed that their common interests and profession was a uniting factor that set the tone for a romantic bond.
Naomi and John dated for about two years before deciding to take their relationship to the next level. Convinced that John was that special person, Naomi said YES after the actor popped the big question with a 2.50-carat Edwardian engagement ring from L.A.’s Platt Boutique Jewelry. The couple’s romance was further made official in September 2010 when they exchanged nuptial vows.
Naomi and John have since expanded their family. In fact, they began procreating months before tying the knot. In December 2009, they welcomed a son Rocko Akira Clapp and two years later, their daughter Arlo Lemoyne Yoko Clapp joined the family in October 2011. Naomi Nelson is also a stepmother to Madison, a child from Knoxville’s previous marriage to Melanie Lynn Cates. Knoxville and Nelson have shared an inseparable bond for nearly a decade and continue to wax stronger together with no signs to the contrary.
While the marriage is a first for Naomi, the same can’t be said of her husband. There is no information about Nelson’s dating history but as earlier hinted, The Dukes Of Hazzard actor was previously married to Melanie Lynn Cates. The erstwhile lovers got married on May 15, 1995, but later parted ways in July 2006 although their divorce was finally settled in July 2009. Their union produced a daughter, named Madison.
Naomi Nelson and her family currently live happily together at their lavish Dayton Beach house.
