“And all of a sudden I saw Kurt walk in, big blue eyes. He was so handsome…I was just like, ‘I gotta have him.'”
To top it off, she had no idea that Kurt Angle was the legend of WWE. The duo did not jump into dating immediately as they remained friends for a while.
Their friendship bond was strong for sure as she would later help him when he got injured.
“Through his rough times, I kept coming over his house and I kept checking on him. He didn’t really want to leave the house, and I always kept coming over, and we watched movies for weeks. I was just always there for him.”
Finally, Kurt waited for the right time and asked her out realizing that the bond the two shared was more than friendship. She had her first date with Kurt Angle at Arby’s which she claims is one of her favorite memories.
Well, it might be fate after all: the couple got engaged in 2010 driving the love into marriage. They tied the knot on 20 July 2012. The original wedding, however, was to be in 2011, but due to Yannotti’s pregnancy with her first child, the wedding got postponed to 2012.

Proud wife, mommy, used to do that acting thing.
Well, she is definitely a family person, keeping her family as her top priority. She was happy to sacrifice her career for her husband who enjoys a net worth of $25 million.
