The former make-up artist has received credits for being instrumental in her husband’s current stable life after hitting several rocky relationships.

Annie D’Angelo retired from her career as a makeup artist and many wonder what she makes out of her life aside from being the wife of a country singer. Here are facts to know about her personal and professional life.

Her Family Life

Annie D’Angelo became a public figure immediately after her marriage to Willie Hugh Nelson, a man whose name is synonymous with country music but who’s marital life has capsized severally.

Annie’s marriage to Nelson is apparently her first as she has not been linked to any man as her boyfriend or husband. However, she is her husband’s fourth wife as he has been previously married to three other women before her. Willie married his first wife, Martha Matthews in 1952, unfortunately, the marriage lasted for only ten years after which they were separated. The country singer had three children with his first estranged wife.

Shortly after Willie and Matha’s separation, the Texas-born country singer hooked up with Shirey Collie. They married in 1963, only to divorce after living together as a couple for eight years. Collie filed for divorce after discovering her husband’s marital affairs with Connie Koepke which resulted in the birth of a female child named Paula Carlene Nelson.
