Abel Is in a Blissful Marital Relationship
The American actor has been in a happy marital relationship with his wife, Allie Wood, a writer/fashion blogger, for over 7 years.
Abel first met his wife when he was just 17 years old and she was 19 years old. At that time, Wood was in a relationship with a different man. Over the years, the now-married couple remained connected with each other but the timing was never right.
Fortunately, luck was with Abel as he and Wood began dating. After some period, the actor decided not to wait any longer and popped the question on 2013 New Year’s Eve when they were at Times Square.
Wood accepted the marriage proposal and they got engaged. Over 11 months later, on November 9, 2013, the engaged duo became a husband and wife duo as they shared the wedding vows with their family and close friends by their side.
Since then, the couple has been relishing some of the best moments of their life with their significant other always by their side. Some of their love for each other can also be seen whenever they post pictures alongside each other on Instagram.
One such instance was on January 16, 2020, when Abel shared some amazing pictures of himself and his wife on the occasion of his wife’s birthday. In the caption, he also mentioned that his wife is gorgeous, elegant, outrageously funny and she is his favorite person on the planet.
In 2020, they completed 7 years of their wedding. And, in a couple of months later, they will be celebrating their 8th wedding anniversary.
Abel and Wood Are the Parents of One
Not only Abel and Wood are an awesome couple but they recently became awesome parents to their son, Henry Alvin Abel (born. February 8, 2021).
On March 8, 2021, Wood took to her Instagram handle to announce that she had given birth to a son back in early February 2021. Through the caption, she mentioned that Henry spent 16 days in NICU, but he is healthy and already back with her and Abel.
As for the American actor, on the same day, he also shared a picture of him holding his son with his wife accompanying them. “Welcome to earth, Henry,” his caption stated.
Since the announcement, the duo has been flaunting pictures captured alongside their baby boy. It seems they are handling parenthood quite well.
The happiness of welcoming a child into the family comes two years after Abel and Wood lost their firstborn. On November 7, 2019, Wood gave birth to her first son, Owen Alvin Abel, while she was still at 35 weeks of pregnancy.
Everything seemed normal after the birth until it wasn’t. Owen was healthy as well as kicking, but all of it stopped suddenly. It was declared that he had passed away.
A couple of weeks later, on November 22, both of them shared the sad news via Instagram and dedicated a heartfelt tribute to their son.
The sudden demise of their just-born child shocked the couple. However, they managed to cope with it as time passed. To this date, too, they remember him and even celebrate his birthday. On Owen’s first birthday, they helped raise funds for No Kid Hungry, a charity organization.
