Alfonso got married on the 20th of January 2002 to Robin Stapler. Robin gave birth to their daughter, Sienna Ribeiro, in 2003. Sadly, the two got divorced in 2006, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for their divorce. They currently share custody of their daughter.

In 2011, Alfonso began dating Angela Unkrich, a writer from Swedesburg, Iowa. Not much is known about Angela beside the fact that she attended the prestigious Northwestern University in Illinois and that she has two brothers – Brendon and Tyson.

In 2012, the two announced their engagement. They got married a few months later in October in Burbank, California. Their wedding was a star-studded affair with the likes of Will Smith and Joey Fatone in attendance.

The following year, in October, Angela gave birth to their first child Alfonso Lincoln Ribeiro, Jr., (who is also referred to as AJ). In 2015, Angela gave birth to the couple’s second son – Anders Reyn Ribeiro.

Alfonso and his family currently reside in Los Angeles.

Alfonso Ribeiro’s Height

Alfonso Ribeiro’s height is listed at 5 ft 5 in (165 cm) and he currently weighs 138 lbs (63 kg). The actor is presently in great shape but his physique only became a focus for him when he began working on Dancing With The Stars. Because the rehearsals for the show were very demanding and intensive, he lost 7kgs (17lbs) from dancing over 8 hours a day.

After the show, Alfonso continued dancing as a path to fitness and still dances about 3 to 4 hours a day. He has admitted the routine is hard to maintain especially since he is not a professional dancer but in the end, his hard work paid off.
