Amber Lancaster and A.J. Allodi

Amber Lancaster is in a loving marriage with her husband A.J. Allodi. Allodi is a Los Angeles-based businessman. The two met through mutual friends, Melissa Ordway and Justin Gaston. Melissa Ordway is also the wife of American singer-songwriter Justin Gaston. Amber and Melissa worked together at CBS and one night in mid-November 2015 they all ended up together at the same restaurant. It was at the restaurant that Allodi asked Melissa to introduce him to Amber. After that night, the two didn’t see each other until the middle of January 2016. It was after their second meetup that the sparks really flew and they became inseparable.

Ten months later, on October 21, 2016, the couple got engaged. The engagement didn’t quite go the way Allodi had originally planned it to be. The businessman had wanted to propose to his then-girlfriend in the Bahamas in November instead. However, in early October, news about Amber’s grandmother’s ill-health reached them. Plans were changed and a trip to see grandma happened instead.

The Couple’s Engagement and Marriage

Allodi said in an interview that he got very nervous when he wanted to ask Amber Lancaster to marry him. When he got out the ring and went on one knee, he says he pretty much started rambling because he ‘blacked out.’ While down on a knee professing his love and telling her how she’d changed his life, Amber went down on her knees with tears and laughter to remind Allodi to actually ask her to marry him. She said yes to his proposal and the weekend was spent celebrating with family and friends that were around for her grandmother.

The couple got to exchange their vows on October 7, 2017, in Palm Springs, California.  According to the couple, it was the most incredible day for them spent with their loved ones and they were very content with it. The wedding ceremony was officiated by Go Country 105’s radio host Graham Bunn. Wedding guests included Drew Carey, Jessica Hall, Justin Gaston, and Melissa Ordway, and Kenny “The Jet” Smith.

Before she got married to A.J. Allodi, Amber Lancaster was in a three-year relationship with American actor, Zack Conroy from 2010 till 2013. Born on April 19, 1985, Zack Conroy is best known for his role as James Spaulding in the soap opera Guiding Light, for which he got a Daytime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Younger Actor. Before Conroy, she was with Zach Gilford from 2008 to 2009. Born on January 14, 1982, Zach Gilford is an American actor best known for being Matt Saracen in the NBC sports drama Friday Night Lights.

Pregnancy Issues and Childbirth

All indications showed that the new couple was quite happy with each other after tying the knot. Fast forward to two years later, and Amber Lancaster announces via Instagram on April 15, 2019, she and her husband were expecting their first child in October.

However, complications arose during the pregnancy due to the preeclampsia Amber had been diagnosed with. Preeclampsia is a pregnancy disorder that is characterized by hypertension and albuminuria—a kidney disease. Because of the condition, Amber had to deliver her son nine weeks earlier than her projected due date. On August 3, 2019, Amber Lancaster and A.J. Allodi’s son, Russell Levi Allodi was born. Later the same month, the model made it known that she had to undergo a hysterectomy—a procedure to remove her uterus—due to complications during her son’s birth.
