Like her husband, Bojana Jankovic has made a name for herself in Hollywood. However, her work in the industry is not what made her famous. Who exactly is Michael Weatherly's wife?
Michael Weatherly is an accomplished actor best known for his performances as special agent Anthony DiNozzo on "NCIS" in 2003 and Dr. Jason Bull in the legal drama "Bull." He's also a director and a musician.
While fans recognize him as a doctor of psychology in "Bull," not many know that he actually married a renowned doctor. Here are some fascinating tidbits about Michael's beautiful wife, Bojana Jankovic.

WHO IS SHE?
Bojana is an award-winning doctor respected by her colleagues in the world of medicine. She went to medical school at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.
She got her master's in experimental medicine as well as a bachelor's degree in biophysics at the same university. The American College of Physicians fellow has trained in functional medicine and mindfulness.
Throughout her academic journey, Bojana worked in endocrinology and oncology. She also presented her discoveries at academic conferences and got published in several medical journals.
Bojana has been repeatedly recognized for her excellence, most notably by the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where she earned awards for patient satisfaction.
She is no stranger to accolades; she got the Super Doctors Rising Star award for two years in Southern California and was awarded Top Doctor status in New York between 2018 and 2022.
Bojana's professional pursuits included more than just writing for medical publications and working as a doctor. She had an exciting career in the entertainment industry before pursuing her medical career.
The Serbian-born doctor is a talented writer and assistant director. She is credited for her work in the 2007 short film "Do Not Leave Me with Strangers" and the 2009 series "TVWWW."
Although she no longer works in the entertainment industry, she has made frequent TV appearances as a health consultant. She appeared on MSNBC's "Today" and "The Rachel Ray Show," where she discussed medical topics.
HOW DID THEY MEET AND WHEN DID THEY GET MARRIED?
It took some time for Michael and Bojana to get to know one another. In a 2014 interview with Queen Latifah, Michael revealed how he met his future wife.
Michael shared that he met Bojana while on a trip to Vancouver with his friends. He was smitten by her beauty and invited her out for dinner, but she declined because she had other plans.
She told the "Dark Angel" actor about her plans to spend three weeks in Europe with her friends. Michael went to considerable lengths to arrange a date with Bojana, including traveling to Paris to take her to dinner.
Bojana liked Michael's face and remembered how they made eye contact on the day they first met. After a two-year long-distance romance, she relocated to Los Angeles to be with Michael.

The couple ultimately married in September 2009. Michael's marriage to the renowned doctor helped him realize what true happiness and contentment were. The actor said:
"I had gotten to a much more mature stage in my life and understood myself much better."
Michael was previously engaged to his "Dark Angel" co-star Jessica Alba in 2003. After their high-profile breakup, he kept away from the spotlight for a long time. Jessica is now married to producer Cash Warren.

HOW MANY CHILDREN DO THEY HAVE?
Michael and Bojana's union blessed them with two beautiful children. On April 10, 2012, three years after they tied the knot, they became parents for the first time to a beautiful daughter whom they named Olivia.
Less than two years later, they welcomed their second child together, a son named Liam, on October 29, 2013. Michael has never been happier and confessed that his children and marriage are his greatest pride.
Michael considers himself lucky to have Bojana as his wonderful wife for over a decade. He looks forward to spending their golden years together.
His current happiness is a far cry from how he was after the collapse of his first marriage, which left him feeling heartbroken and helpless.
HIS PRECIOUS MARRIAGE
Aside from Olivia and Liam, Michael has an older son named August, whom he shares with his ex-wife and actress Amelia Heinle. The former couple worked on the soap opera "Loving" and its spinoff "The City," where they fell in love.
The pair had a brief marriage, lasting from 1995 until 1997. Michael admitted that times were tough during his first marriage. He struggled to support his family when "The City" was canceled. The actor was overwhelmed by his responsibilities.
To make ends meet, he accepted just about any job that came his way, leading to long periods away from home and, ultimately, a divorce. Michael revealed that his split from Amelia after their short marriage was hard on him.

It was also hard on their son August, with one parent moving across the country. Learning from his past mistakes, Michael said he no longer brings his work into his private life. He goes hard at work but values family time at home. He remarked:
"When I got remarried, I wanted to do my very best to ensure that rupture wouldn't happen again. My kids and my marriage are the things I'm proudest of."
Michael attributes much of his personal development to his profession. He said acting had given him a better understanding of himself and it helped him grow as a person.
