Lisa Ann Walter, acclaimed star of the hit series "Abbott Elementary," once opened up about her romantic journey, revealing that she has walked down the aisle not once but twice in her past. The talented actress has also shared glimpses into her personal life.


Lisa Ann Walter was born in Silver Spring, Maryland, and is a mother of four children. The actress shares her two oldest children with her former husband, Sam Baum.

After their marriage ended, she welcomed her two youngest children. While there is no information about their father, the actress once revealed that she had walked down the aisle twice, and they ended in divorce. She also explained why when she joined the "Chicks in the Office" podcast in May 2023.


The television star revealed that her first husband was Jewish and described him as "lovely." However, things fell apart when she discovered that he was gay. Meanwhile, Lisa disclosed her second husband was a cheater, so their union crumbled.

In this case, it remains unclear which category her ex-husband, Sam Baum, falls under, as the pair divorced in 1999, and there is no information on when they tied the knot.

Lisa Ann Walter & Her Ex-husband Sam Baum Were Co-stars

Sam Baum is a producer and an actor well-known for appearing alongside his former wife in the American sitcom, "Life's Work." He also starred alongside Anthony Anderson, Ice-T, Sam Waterson, Angie Harmon, Chris Noth, Mariska Hargitay, and Christopher Meloni in "Law & Order."

Like her ex-husband, Lisa is a producer, an actress, and a writer. She is best known for her stints in the classic film, "The Parent Trap," alongside Lindsay Lohan, Natasha Richardson, and Kat Graham and in "Shall We Dance?" with Richard Gere, Jennifer Lopez, Nick Cannon, and Susan Sarandon.


She is currently starring in the popular mockumentary, "Abbott Elementary," alongside Quinta Brunson, Tyler Williams James, Sheryl Lee Ralph, and Chris Perfetti.


Lisa Ann Walter's Significant Role in 'Abbott Elementary'

The actress stars as Melissa Schemmenti on the ABC show, co-written and executive produced by none other than Brunson, a Golden Globe Award winner.

Lisa was reportedly overjoyed to join the ensemble that pays tribute to the country's hardworking teachers or staff, including her mother, a former Washington D.C. public school teacher.


Lisa, whose acting career spans four decades, was planning on retiring before she landed a role on the three-time Emmy Award-winning comedy series. She said in a May 2023 interview:

"You don’t stop when you’re lucky enough to be on a hit. You’ve got to take advantage of it."


Lisa Ann Walter Is a Single Mother of Four Kids

Lisa Ann Walter's role in "Abbott Elementary," which also scooped three Golden Globe Awards, changed her and her four children's lives. Of the opportunity, she said in an interview:

"Raising four kids as a single mom, I never got to give them that rich-people life. I was busy trying to keep a roof over our heads, taking jobs where I could earn while also being present. I couldn't take a job out of town and have them wind up addicted to meth."


Lisa is a mother to three sons: Jordan and twins Simon and Spencer, and a daughter named Delia. The doting parent shares her oldest son Jordan and only daughter Delia with her former spouse, Sam.

Meanwhile, her identical twins, Spencer and Simon, were born on October 11, 2000. The family matriarch often shares photos of her children on her Instagram page.


In October 2018, she posted a throwback picture of the twins as babies and captioned it, "18 years ago my two peas in a pod were born. Happy Birthday." On a Mother's Day post in May 2020, the TV star posted a group photo featuring her and her kids and wrote, "Happy Mother’s Day from me and the puppies."

That same year in September, Lisa shared a collage of her son Jordan on his birthday and revealed he began as a "baby model" and grew up to follow in her acting footsteps. The proud mom added her child is a successful musician, producer, and comic.


When Jordan celebrated his birthday the following year, his mother posted childhood pictures of him and penned, "This day is special for many reasons. @itsjordanmonroe Birthday was first."

Interestingly, Lisa's twins were born on the same day as the twins in "The Parent Trap." She only realized this after her friends, who had visited her house, called her from the kitchen "screaming" and told her about the birth date, which she found "bizarre."

During an interview, she talked about the single mom's life and revealed that her twin boys would not open up to her and liked inviting friends over without her knowing beforehand. In addition, they criticize her a lot. Moreover, she shared her daughter Delia was getting her Ph.D. in New York.
