Aside from Gia, Joe and his wife Arlene Vrhel have a second daughter, Mia, who has autism.
Jo’s character, Agent Rossi, has been married several times and has a complicated relationship with one of his ex-wives. But this is far removed from his real life.
He has been married to the Arlene for more than four decades. The couple tied the knot on October 3, 1975.
In one interview, he said that the 300th episode of “Criminal Minds” aired on October 3, 2018, their 43rd wedding anniversary. He apologized during that interview that he had to work on their anniversary.
Mia’s autism hasn’t stopped the family from traveling together for Joe’s projects. The actor said that he couldn’t leave his wife behind to raise two kids, so they went with him everywhere.
