Personal and Family Life
There are not many details known about Josh’s early life. He was born in 1976 in New Hampshire, and most likely, grew up there. Several sources state that he pursued martial arts at an early age, being involved in it since he was a child, but it’s not known what kind of martial arts he took up. After matriculating from high school, he continued his studies, enrolling in Dartmouth College. During his time there, he met his Sarah Wayne Callie. They started dating there, and after graduating, eventually decided to tie the knot on June 21, 2002. Not many details have been shared about their marriage.
Five years after that, her publicist confirmed that the couple was expecting a child. Their daughter, Keala Winterhalt, was born on July 20, 2007. Several years later, they adopted another child, their son Oakes Wayne in August 2013. The couple is still together to date with no signs of a divorce any time soon.
As previously stated, Sarah continued to persist with her passion for acting, while Josh pursued his passion for martial arts, which, with other sports, he had been very interested in from his early years. After her being cast in many new roles, her popularity grew and so did Josh’s as he was well known as her loving husband. Sarah first started with an appearance in “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.” However, her fame came from her appearance in the immensely popular “Prions Break” and from her role in “Walking Dead”.
After a year of their marriage, Sarah moved to New York to begin her acting career, but still for both family life is a priority. Even while Sarah was busy with her career, she and Josh would go on to have two children together. After that their relationship has become even stronger.
It isn’t easy when it comes to having a successful married life. It needs a lot of sacrifices and forgiveness to make your marital life a happy one. When one cannot give their full percentage, then the other has to fill the gap, and that’s when love can sustain. Despite being busy in their respective professional career, they still manage to spend quality time together. Both Sarah Wayne and Josh Winterhalt seem to have deep mutual understanding and love which is the greatest asset of any married life.
One of the reasons there’s very little information about this couple, and especially about Josh Winterhalt, mainly due to the lack of him having a strong online presence. He does not have accounts on any major social media, including Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. He also prefers to keep information about his personal life private. This is why finding information about Josh is not that easy. And as a result, he is also many times mistaken for Colton Haynes, an American actor, model, and singer, best known for the American TV series “Teen Wolf” and “Arrow.”
His wife on the other hand is very active on social media but posts a few personal photos and videos to interact with fans. Two of them can still be seen making a public appearance, primarily at the events related to Sarah’s projects along with their kids. Sarah Wayne Callies and her husband, Josh Winterhalt, are together in every step of their life. And they are happy together for over twenty years.
