Meet Annaleigh Ashford's Husband Joe Tapper

Broadway star and actress Annaleigh Ashford is having a moment. Despite years of landing large roles in musicals such as "Wicked" and "Kinky Boots," Ashford is gaining popularity for her portrayal of Paula Jones in "Impeachment: American Crime Story" (via Independent).

Streaming on FX, the true-crime series lays out the timeline of events that took place leading to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton as told through the perspective of Jones (played by Ashford), per ET Online. This role is a departure from Ashford's usual comedic characters, such as the one she played in "Legally Blonde: The Musical." However, the actress is a pro at balancing tons of roles, such as that of wife and mom (via New York Post).

Aside from her work on stage and TV, Ashford — who has a surprising net worth — is mom to Jack Clark Tapper, whom she shares with her husband, Joe Tapper. The couple tied the knot in 2013 and appear to have a thriving relationship centered around their first child (via People). Let's learn a bit more about Annaleigh Ashford's husband Joe Tapper.

Joe Tapper is an actor

Joe Tapper and Annaleigh Ashford discovered their shared passion for acting, theatre, and each other, after being set up by Ashford's manager in 2006. The rest is history as the couple went on to get married in 2013, according to The New York Times, and had their first child in 2016, according to Liverampup.

The actors must have a lot in common since Tapper has an impressive resume of appearances both on and off-Broadway as well as on screen. Tapper has appeared in "The White Chip," "You Can't Take it With You," and "Socrates" (via Playbill). He has also been cast in several TV series including "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Blue Bloods," "Chicago Med," the drama "Masters of Sex," and "American Odyssey" in 2015 (via IMDb).
