Michael Weatherly has attained more than average success in his show biz career. Best known for his roles on the small screen, he received much recognition for portraying Anthony DiNozzo in the action procedural series, NCIS. When his time on the series came to an end, he continued to entertain fans as Dr. Jason Bull in the courtroom drama, Bull which premiered in 2016. In his personal/private life, Weatherly has also recorded some success. The third time seemed to have been the charm for the actor, after a failed marriage and a failed engagement, Weatherly seemed to have found a home for his heart in Bojana Jankovic. The couple now share two kids together, but Weatherly has three kids in total including his son from his previous marriage.

The TV Actor Met His Wife At A Bar

It seemed like a scene from a romantic movie when Weatherly met Bojana Jankovic way back in 2007. According to his interview with People Magazine, the actor said that 2007 was a time when he was enjoying singlehood after having gone through a failed marriage and a failed engagement, however, he was out one night in Vancouver, with a friend when he spotted Jankovic.

His friend was teasing him about his single relationship status and feeling lonely to which he responded that he was just fine. However, at the bar, he’d notice Jankovic from a distance and was stealing glances to admire her. In his words to People, Weatherly described Jankovic as a “ravishing beauty.” Luckily for the then single actor, it appeared to be an attraction at first sight; immediately he locked eyes with Jankovic, they hit things off from then on.

The NCIS alum would later joke to another publication – Celebuzz that he’d met his wife at an auction and things were a kind of complicated, it was, however, nothing other than a joke. Fast forward to 2009, two years after they met, the couple was ready to seal things for life and walked the aisle as husband and wife on the 30th of September 2009.

The couple has since remained together and continued to wax stronger as parents to two kids, even the obvious 15-year age gap between them does not seem to hamper their love.

They’ve owned a number of properties together including a Los Angeles mansion which they parted in 2012 for $1.8 million, they later paid $3.5 million for a Hollywood Hills mansion that same year. The new purchase was in preparation to welcome their first child together – a daughter named Olivia.

Weatherly’s Wife Jankovic is a Medical Professional

She is a graduate of the University of British Columbia where she earned a B.S. in biophysics in 2003, she added a master’s degree in Oncology two years later in 2005. Four years later Jankovic graduated from med school and became an M.D. She is a is double board-certified in internal and integrative medicine. The internist worked at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and West LA Veterans Administration from 2010 to 2013. Jankovic also attended UCLA School of Public Health where she studied epidemiology.

The Couple Have Two Children Together: Olivia and Liam

Michael Weatherly’s union with Bojana Jankovic has produced two children, a daughter, and a son. The couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Olivia on April 10, 2012, she is 9 years old. A little over a year later, the couple welcomed their second child, a son named Liam on October 29, 2013, Liam is 7 years old. Weatherly announced the birth of his son on Twitter, revealing that he weighed 10lb.

Weatherly told People that he is a big teddy bear with his kids, but said that he’s trying hard to be an authority dad. He, however, explained his challenge with this being the fact that as a working and busy dad, that it is hard to be strict on them when he gets time to be with them as he is barely around, he also highlighted that it was not good to be too soft. The actor revealed this after filming the last episode of NCIS, when he said he was glad because he would have more time to spend with his kids. Though the actor and his wife tend not to reveal too much about their kids, the actor, in that interview said that there were many extraordinary things going on in his children’s life.

August Manning Weatherly is the Actor’s Oldest Son From His Former Wife

Michael Weatherly’s first marriage to Amelia Heinle with whom he appeared in The City and Loving lasted from 1995 to 1997 and produced one son named August who was born in 1996. Per, MyHeritage, his birthday is the 10th of January. Unfortunately, their marriage began to experience cracks due to financial pressure after their show The City got canceled shortly after their marriage. According to People, Weatherly had to take odd jobs to pay the bills, however, with the responsibility of becoming a new husband and father getting harder, it took a toll on their marriage and the pair eventually divorced.

Like the actor’s other two kids, not much is known publicly about his oldest son. It is yet unclear if he plans to follow in his father’s footsteps to start a career in entertainment.

Both Weatherly and his ex-wife have since gone on with their lives and careers. Heinle in 2007 married her Young and the Restless co-star, Thad Luckinbill with whom she shares two kids.
