  • Scott Baio's fans rushed to congratulate and celebrate him and his wife when they celebrated more than a decade of marriage.
  • The actor's wife has battled several life-threatening health issues, but the pair keep going strong with their children.

On September 14, 2023, Scott Baio reached a lovely milestone with his longtime wife, Renee Sloan, when they celebrated their wedding anniversary. Taking to his X account, formerly known as Twitter, the actor shared two side-by-side photos of him and his wife.

In both pictures, the couple were side by side as they smiled and looked toward the camera. One image was of the couple when they were younger, while the other was taken on the red carpet of Nickelodeon's 26th Annual Kids' Choice Awards on March 23, 2013.


The star captioned the post by tagging his wife and writing, "Happy anniversary." A fan who replied to the post celebrated the couple's wedding anniversary by wishing Baio a happy one and many more and calling him a "great role model."


Another follower congratulated the actor on marrying "really, really, really well." A third social media user showered the pair with "blessings galore," noted how they are a "match made in heaven," live in love, and are "amazing" parents.

In 2015, Baio's family went through a health crisis.

The couple tied the knot when the celebrity was close to turning 50. Baio and his wife have gone through many trials and tribulations throughout their relationship — mainly due to the health conditions that Sloan is facing.


When Did Scott and Renee Marry and What Trials Have They Faced?

In March 2008, Baio finally stopped being a desired bachelor at 46 when he and Sloan, his longtime girlfriend, married. The former teen idol tied the knot with the love of his life in Los Angeles with a ceremony held at a luxury high-rise rooftop.

The "Scott Baio Is 45…and Single" star had been in a long-term relationship with Sloan while the 2007 VH1 show aired. The couple initially met in the 1990s at the Playboy Mansion before reconnecting later with him deciding to make the relationship work or otherwise he had to move on.


During the filming of his show, they avoided each other for eight weeks while he got his life together, but he ended up proposing. Their wedding aired on "Scott Baio Is 46…and Pregnant," with Sloan pregnant with their twins.


However, the "Happy Days" star and his fiancee lost one of their children at around 12 weeks. In 2007, five weeks before her due date, the couple welcomed their daughter, Bailey, and she was a guest of honor at their wedding.

In 2015, Baio's family went through a health crisis, with him revealing in a Facebook post that his wife was diagnosed with a meningioma brain tumor. He asked for support and prayers, saying, "My wife is my rock."


A few years later, in 2018, Sloan shared on X that she did not only have two meningioma tumors but in October 2017, she was diagnosed with Microvascular Brain Disease, with her husband retweeting the post writing:

"Unfortunately, this is true. Renee is forever my rock, my life & my soulmate! Toughest person I know."

As of September 2023, Sloan is still surviving many conditions and building a happy home with her husband. On the other hand, Baio — born on September 22, 1960 — is 62 and will be turning a year older soon.
