Meet Steve Zahn Wife Robyn Peterman

Steve Zahn and his wife Robyn Petermanher both have their feet in acting. Robyn is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author.

Robyn hails from an artistically wealthy family. Everyone is creative, writes, performs, or has an entrepreneurial streak.

While growing up, her early creative endeavors were mainly centered on performing. She was a theater major at Chicago's Northwestern University and has always enjoyed performing. 

She was successful in her endeavors, splitting her early adulthood between Los Angeles and New York and having a career as an active actor on Broadway and in cinema and television.

A few years later, her husband, Steve Zahn, was also frequently traveling for work to far-flung movie sets and locations with their two young children. Peterman ultimately decided to get off the acting merry-go-round. 

Even though she enjoyed her job, the logistics were getting more and more challenging to manage.

After quitting acting, Peterman had to decide what to do with her enormous creative energy. She formed a nonprofit theater group, taught drama and dancing for a while, and liked doing all these things.

However, when she started writing fiction, she found a way to use her talent and love for humor and storytelling in a fresh and new way that suited her current lifestyle.

Interestingly, Peterman met her husband, Zahn, while seeing a nationwide tour of "Bye Bye Birdie" in 1991. After falling in love, the pair married on July 16, 1994.

In 2004, the couple moved their family to Kentucky, a decision Peterman initially resisted. When she left after high school, Peterman did not intend to return to Kentucky.

After living in central Kentucky for more than 15 years, she says she couldn't be happier with her choice and enjoys being around so many animals that she can't help but consider adopting them all.

However, they've built a life there that revolves around family, her and Zahn's creative endeavors, and those of their children.
