We were all heartbroken when we were forced to say goodbye to Steven Yeun’s character Glenn when he was killed off on The Walking Dead. In the years since his exit from the since-canceled series, he’s been booked and busy.

Along with appearing alongside Lakeith Stanfield and Tessa Thompson in Sorry to Bother You, the actor also starred in Jordan Peele’s 2022 thriller, Nope.

However, when Steven’s not on set flexing his acting chops, he steps into his role as a husband and father. Here’s everything we know about the Beef star’s wife and kids!

Here's everything we know about Steven Yeun's wife and kids!

Steven's wife is a photographer by the name of Joana Pak, who has been with Steven since well before he garnered the fan base he has today. Per her Instagram, Joana hails from Fayetteville, Ark., however little else is known about her as she has virtually no digital footprint.

Steven and Joana got married in 2016, the same year he left The Walking Dead, at the Paramour Estate in Los Angeles.

In 2017, Steven opened up to Martha Stewart Weddings about how he and Joana met shortly before he landed his iconic Walking Dead role and how he pursued her.

"She walked into the bar where I was a really s---ty bartender, and it was kismet," Steven said, of meeting Joana before he even made the move to Los Angeles. "After that, I saw her every day for six months."

Overall, though, Steven and Joana seem to prefer to keep things low-key when they can, which is totally understandable, given that they have a family to consider.

In 2017, Steven and Joana welcomed their first child, a son, who they named Jude Malcolm Yeun. Then, in 2019, they had their second child, a daughter, whose name hasn't been disclosed to the public.

What is Steven Yeun and his wife's net worth?

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Steven's is $5 million. Joana's net worth isn't public knowledge, but being Steven's wife with a hefty social media following of her own and a photography career that may or may not still be active, Joana has likely done well for herself too.

And, more than likely, she helps keep him grounded. Steven may always be Glenn to some and a top-tier actor to others. To Joana, though, he's just Steven and that may be why their marriage has worked so well over the years.
