Dean Wetter didn’t have to be a superstar to find himself a lovely charming wife. He and Ann Wilson met back in the 80s and it was love at first sight. After their first meeting, the duo went on a date and got extremely drunk. Ann tried to persuade Dean to make love to her but being an absolute gentleman, according to his wife, he refused to take advantage of her drunkenness. But the bond they developed for each other couldn’t last as they parted ways shortly and didn’t get to speak to each other for a while. Fortunately, for both of them, they reconnected decades later only to realize that they didn’t really get over each other. They began dating at once and it ended up working out. In 2015, they had their wedding and are still married today.

Ann is a famous rock star whose career has spanned over 40 years and still counting. She came to the limelight as a member of a rock band named Heart following their debut album titled Dreamboat.

Long before the two got back together, Ann adopted two children; a girl and a boy. The girl’s name is Maria and she was adopted in 1991 while the boy named Dustin was later adopted in 1998.

Dean has proven to be a really private person, but this couldn’t save him from trouble in the past. He was all over the news in 2016 when he was charged for fourth-degree assault. This occurred after he choked his wife’s twin nephews during a family outing on Ann’s tour. He pleaded guilty to the charges and as a result, was made to pay a fine of $10,000. The case almost ruined Ann Wilson’s relationship with her sister. Thankfully, the sisters finally let the past go.
