Many people know Jason Hervey as “Wayne Arnold” from the Television comedy drama, The Wonder Years. But there is more to Hervey than the funny character who always seems to be the loser in romantic relationships in the series. Unlike ‘Wayne Arnold’, Hervey is a really different guy in reality. He is now a married man and a father to four wonderful children.

Hervey has been married to Shannon Hervey for nearly seventeen years. The couple tied the knot in the year 1998. They have always been together ever since. They even have two children together, Sam and Shaina. Hervey really seems to be a total family man.

“There is one reason, and one reason only why I, thank God, didn’t go down a crazy path,” the 43-year old shared. “It’s because of my parents. It’s because of my mom and dad. I have an amazing mom, and a great father, and an incredible family support system.”

After the beginning of 00’s, Hervey ended his career as an actor. One of the reasons behind this was so that he could spend more time with his family and kids. Hervey is that kind of a guy who really believes in family values and similar stuff. He has already gone through a divorce once and hence seeks to avoid it at all cost.

Before getting engaged with Shannon, Hervey had had a brief relationship with Kelley Patrice O’Neill. The ex-duos were even married. But after just living together for a year, they decided to get separated. Now O’Neill and Hervey still remain as good friends.

Hervey’s childhood was very different from a normal American childhood. At a young age of four, he appeared in dozens of commercials. After that, he began to land on small roles on various movies like Back to The Future, Meatballs Part II. He was even named as one of VH1’s 100 greatest Kid Stars.

Due to his adventurous childhood and his good looks, Hervey had a lot of female fans. In his late teen years, he was linked with Dawn Bailey-Grimes. After that, he also had an affair with wrestler Melissa Ann Hiatt, also known as Missy Hyatt (her stage name).

Besides acting, Hervey is also engaged in business. He is also a voice actor, who has already performed as a guest performer in The Justice League, and is a producer for a couple of Television series. He really is a multitalented person.

Currently Hervey has a net worth of 2 million dollars. He has amassed nearly 14.6k followers on Twitter. Unfortunately, he does not seem to be available on the Instagram yet. But we really hope to see him in various other shows in the near future.
