Alan Ritchson is currently in the spotlight for his portrayal of Jack Reacher in the show Reacher. In addition, he has gained fame for his role of Bruce in Fired Up!, Arthur Curry / Aquaman in Smallville, and Raphael in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film series.
The actor has built a flourishing career in the entertainment industry, which isn’t the only good thing in his life as he also relishes a blissful marital life. Ritchson has been married to his longtime wife, Catherine Ritchson.
Alan Ritchson and wife Catherine Ritchson’s relationship
As of this writing, Alan and Catherine have been married for more than 15 years. They tied the knots in 2006.
It’s presently unknown when and where the married couple first met and when they began dating each other. But, after some brief time of togetherness, they allegedly decided to take a further step in their relationship.

On May 13, 2006, they walked down the aisle and shared the wedding vows. Since then, the duo has always been together, and they have supported each other through thick and thin.
In their marital relationship, there was a time when they “had to wonder how they woud survive till the end of the month,” and there was also a time when “they wondered how things got so good.”
Alan reflected on the same highs and lows, good and difficult times, and many more things in his marital relationship with Catherine during their 15th married anniversary on May 13, 2021.
On that special occasion, he took to his Instagram handle to share some throwback pictures from his married life with the love of his life. Additionally, he wrote a long but heartfelt caption to summarize his marital relationship.
In the end, he concluded by writing, “Happy 15 years @catritchson – I don’t deserve you and the memories we make.”
One of the lines from the long caption was, “Despite the precarious highs and the suffocating lows, they’re still holding hands.” The “suffocating lows” that Alan mentioned might refer to his wife’s battle with sobriety, which Catherine openly talks about.
Despite all that, the couple has managed to overcome all of the struggles, including Catherine’s battle with sobriety [she has been sober since late 2018], and still hold each other’s hands, as Alan said.
As of now, the couple has been living happily. Recently, on February 2, 2022, Catherine accompanied her husband during the premiere of his new Amazon Prime show, Reacher, held in Los Angeles.

Before heading into the theater for the screening, Alan delivered a sweet kiss to his wife, and then the duo went on to pose for shutterbugs.
Alan Ritchson and Catherine Ritchson are parents of three
Not only are Alan and Catherine a great husband and wife duo, but they are also amazing parents to their three children [who are all sons] named Calem Ritchson, Edan Ritchson, and Amory Tristan Ritchson.
The couple of nearly 16 years welcomed their first child, Calem, in 2012 – now 9-year-old. Their second son, Edan, is now seven years of age – born in 2014.
Around a year after they welcomed their second child, on December 6, 2015, Catherine gave birth to a third boy, Amory – 6-year-old now.
