Stone Cold Steve Austin’s Bio (Age)
The retired professional wrestler was born in Austin, Texas, on December 18, 1964. His parents James Anderson and Beverly Anderson named him Steve Anderson after his birth. The couple, however, divorced when Steve was around one year old.
Following the separation, Steve’s mother relocated to Victoria, Texas, where she later got married to a man called Ken Williams in 1968. Raising his son without his biological father around was less challenging for Beverly because her second husband, Ken, adopted Austin as his own son.
Stone Cold is a brother to Kevin (younger brother), Scott (younger brother), Jeff (younger brother), and Jennifer (sister). They are very supportive and proud of their brother’s career and achievements so far.
Austin had his high school education at Edna High School, which is situated in the community he was raised. Following his high school graduation, he was given a football scholarship at Wharton County Junior College, after which he received a full scholarship to study at the University of North Texas.
The Texas-born wrestling star legally changed his real name -Steven Williams – to his wrestling name Steve Austin in 2007, as reported by the Wrestling Observer newsletter.
His Family: Wife and Daughter
There is no doubt that the King of 1997, 1998, and 2001 Royal Rumbles reached an enviable level of success in his career as a wrestler. But a look at the retired wrestler’s relationship with women shows he actually had some miserable marital experiences that caused him to tie the knot four times.
Austin’s first love is a pretty woman called Kathryn Burrhus. The two began dating in high school and held onto their romantic relationship throughout college. The former wrestler, on November 24, 1990, sealed his love for Burrhus by exchanging marital vows with her in the presence of their families, friends, and loved ones.
Barely two years into their marriage, the couple’s love for each other fizzled out after Kathryn found out that Stone Cold Steve Austin was in a romantic relationship with Jeanie Clarke. The pair would call it quits and subsequently annulled their marriage on August 7, 1992.
Shortly after the two separated, the veteran wrestler went on to marry Jeanie Clarke. They got wedded in the same year, precisely on December 18, 1992, and their union produced three lovely daughters named Stephanie Williams (born in 1991), Loren William (born in 1994) and Cassidy Williams (born in 1996). He also adopted Jeanie’s daughter (Jade Adams) from her previous marriage to Chris Adams and became a father figure to her. Three years after the arrival of their last child, Austin and Clarke broke up and later divorced on May 10, 1999.
His search for the right woman led him to the wrestling circle, where he fell in love with a wrestling valet called Debra Marshall. The two got married on September 13, 2000, and divorced on February 5, 2003.
Stone Cold Steve Austin got married to his current wife, Kristin Austin, in late 2009. Ever since he married his fourth wife, the two have been having a smooth marital ride. Though he splits his time between California and Tilden, Marina Del Rey, and Texas, he has never shown any sign of leaving his Kristin for any other woman in the world.
The retired wrestler’s second wife, Jeanie Clarke, is popularly known as Lady Blossom. She was born on April 4, 1959, in Brentwood, United Kingdom and retired as a professional wrestling manager and author.

The bald ex-wrestler weighs 118 kilograms while his eye color is green.
