The Big Bang Theory is one of the most watched shows in the U.S. for a good reason! On last night’s episode, we saw the return of Wil Wheaton and his ongoing feud with Sheldon, along with Penny making a great connection with Halley. Wil Wheaton’s real-life wife, Anne Wheaton also joined in on the action, and we have everything you need to know about her right here.

If you are a fan of TBBT, then you can’t help but love to hate Wil Wheaton, just like Sheldon. We saw the actor return to the show, and upset Sheldon by becoming the new Professor Proton, a job the scientist was auditioning for. That night, Jedi Professor Proton visited Sheldon’s dreams, and the genius planned to sabotage Wheaton’s new job. All we know is that if this were real life, Wil Wheaton’s wife would have her husband’s back. Keep reading to learn more from Anne Wheaton’s wiki.

How Did Anne Wheaton Meet Her Better Half?

Anne L. Prince was born on August 8, 1969, making her age 48. She is a mother of two sons, Ryan and Nolan, from a previous relationship. When he was 19, one of her son’s asked Wheaton to adopt him, which the actor was happy to do.

In an interview, she recalled the time she met her husband who was a struggling actor. Though he was in the business since he was a child, he quit by the age of 19. He was still struggling to figure out what he wanted to do, and Anne was very supportive of him and his choices.

The two met in 1995 at a New Year’s party at a mutual friend’s house. Wil was 23 and thought she was cute, but like most people in this situation, was afraid to talk to her. Their friend took the lead and told Anne, who was 26 at the time, that Wil thought that she was cute. But at the time, her resolution was to not be with a man for six months, so she thought nothing of it.

A few days later the same friend invited her to the movies with her boyfriend and Wil, leaving the rest to become history.

It has been almost 22 years that they have been by each other’s side, and 18 years since tying the knot. The couple married on November 7, 1999, and though they don’t have any children of their own, they have Ryan, Nolan, and a boat-load of little furry friends.

What Does Anne Wheaton Do for a Living?

As a single mother, Anne Wheaton took cosmetology night classes, and worked as a waitress by day to provide for her two boys. She was an independent woman, trying hard to give her family a good life.

She became a hairdresser, but after doing it for 17 years, she had to retire in December 2012 after developing tendinitis in her shoulders. It became like a new lease on life, as she immediately began working on fundraisers and charity projects. Now, she and her husband focus on traveling and making the best of their 40s, as the kids are grown up and have their own lives.
