The TV show World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) was something that many kids watched when they were young. Kurt Angle would be familiar for a kid growing up in the 90s. The Olympic gold medalist Kurt Angle first appeared on the show in March 1999. Since then, he has become one of the most famous wrestlers in WWE history. But what else do we know about him besides the fact that he had a very successful career?
Since 2012, an actress, Giovanna Yannotti, has been married to Kurt Angle. The couple is doing well, especially since they just adopted a son. Let’s find out more about the woman who seems to be the love of Kurt Angle’s life.
Yannotti did not finish college.
Giovanna Yannotti was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, on March 26, 1987. We don’t know much about her parents or siblings, but we do know that she is half-Mexican and half-Italian. People think that she grew up in a very usual and humble way.
In terms of her schooling, she finished high school and went to the University of Pittsburgh. She could not finish college, though, because she dropped out to pursue a career in modeling and acting.
Kurt and Giovanna met through a mutual friend.
Giovanna Yannotti met her future husband, Kurt Angle, for the first time on the set of the 2009 movie “End Game.” Yannotti played the part of “Customer at a Restaurant” in the movie, which was a small part. When she first met Kurt Angle, she didn’t know who he was. She told Vince Russo in an interview that she didn’t know about Kurt’s wrestling career or that he was one of the most famous wrestlers of his time.
When Giovanna first saw Kurt, she thought he was very handsome and fell in love with him right away. Before they started dating, they were friends for a while. She went to Kurt’s house to care for him as he healed from his injuries. She said the following in the same interview with Vince Russo:
I kept going to his house to see how he was doing when things were hard for him. He didn’t want to leave the house, so I kept coming over, and we watched movies for weeks. I was just there for him all the time.
After some time, they went to Arby’s for their first date. Kurt soon asked her to marry him, and she said yes. During the time they were getting married, they had their first child. On January 21, 2011, their daughter Giuliana Marie Angle was born.
Giovanna Marries Kurt; This is Kurt Angle’s Second Marriage
Giovanna Yannotti and Kurt were legally married in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on July 20, 2012. Eric Angle, Kurt’s brother, was the best man at their wedding. Still, they haven’t told anyone about the details of their marriage. No one knows much about their big day.
Even though it was the actress’s first marriage, it was not Kurt’s first. He was married to Karen Smedley for ten years before she died. After she married Kurt, he had two kids from his first marriage, and she cared for them. Kyra Angle, Giovanna’s stepdaughter, was born on December 2, 2002, and Kody Angle, her stepson, was born on October 26, 2006.
