Who is Joel McHale’s wife? Joel McHale and wife Sarah Williams normally don’t make headlines, but thanks to the Community alum’s rant about The Bachelor, everyone is looking at the Joel McHale and Sarah Williams love story. You’ve probably never heard of Joel McHale’s wife before, but she’s his everything and so here we have everything there is to know about Sarah Williams.
Comedian/actor Joel McHale was a guest star on Jimmy Kimmel Live’s inaugural prime-time post-Bachelor show. The former Community star was scheduled to talk about his hosting gig for the People’s Choice Awards on January 18, but instead devoted his time to tearing down The Bachelor.
“They pretend they want to fall in love and, what’s even more scary, they think they will actually find it,” said the former The Soup star.
So, what gives McHale the right to mock the hit dating series? Well, he seemingly has it all together in his life and his marriage is rock-solid so far.
Williams Married McHale in 1996!
Sarah Williams and McHale have been married for 20 years and show no signs of divorce anytime soon. McHale met Williams after graduating from the University of Washington. He called a friend of Williams to find out if he could ask her out on a date.
The Community alum talked about it with Redbook Magazine, saying: “She was like ‘I’ll ask, but fat chance, buddy.’ But my wife took the chance. I’m sure she was like ‘there’s no one else around, so I might as well.’”
The happy couple now live together in the Hollywood Hills with their two sons.
They Have a Son Who was Born with Holes in His Heart
Joel and Williams have two sons named Edward (Eddie) and Isaac. As it turned out, Eddie was born with holes in his heart, causing him to spend a lot of time in the hospital.
“He was born with two large holes in his heart. It was horrific; we couldn’t believe it. But we just started dealing with it, said McHale.” There’s nothing else that you can do but proceed. One thing that was so hard was seeing this other family whose little boy died, just as Eddie was doing so great.
The actor added: “Throughout the ward, there were all these kids who’d just had surgery who had gone through things that a kid should never have to go through. It was a dark tunnel, but we came out the other end. For other parents, it’s a tunnel that never ends.”
McHale Has Ways to Keep His Marriage Going
When it comes to being married for 20 years, McHale found a way to stay in love with his wife as if it was the first time.
“You have to choose your spouse every day. Tell yourself that this is the person that I love and want to be with. It has to be something that you do consciously, then it becomes subconscious,” said McHale to WebMD.
McHale added: “Here’s one strategy: Never sleep. That way you can get everything done. Seriously, though, at all times, I make time for the family, even though I’m not very organized about that. I take them with me on trips when I can. I try to get home to dinner every night, but it’s really difficult to get home all the time.”
McHale Thinks of His Wife as SuperMom
McHale has described his wife as a supermom and has a few super powers of his own when it comes to a home with three boys.
“She still wants to be intimate with me,” said McHale to Redbook Magazine. “No, she just thinks of things I never do. If I were taking care of the kids, they’d be running around in potato sacks. People would ask, ‘Do your kids brush their teeth?’ I’d be like, ‘Yeah, every year.’ So she’s brilliant, and she’s beautiful.”
It looks like McHale and Williams have the perfect marriage, and that could be because they didn’t find it on The Bachelor
