Personal Life

Amy married actor John Ritter on September 18, 1999. They starred together in several projects before marrying, most notably the "Problem Child" franchise. The couple welcomed daughter Stella on September 11, 1998.

Sadly, John died on her 5th birthday (which was also the day before Amy's 41st birthday), on September 11, 2003. While rehearsing on the set of "8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter," Ritter collapsed and was rushed to the Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center, where doctors diagnosed him with aortic dissection. Though he was taken into surgery, doctors were not able to save his life, and he died at 10:48 that night at the age of 54.

Seven years after his death, Yasbeck spoke about the loss, telling "Access Hollywood's" Billy Bush, "I have a, you know, a John Ritter-shaped hole in my heart. Nobody can replace that." A few weeks after Ritter died, Yasbeck founded The John Ritter Foundation for Aortic Health to "raise awareness for thoracic aortic disease through genetic research, widespread education, and radical advocacy."

Wrongful Death Lawsuit

After Ritter died, Yasbeck filed a $67 million wrongful death lawsuit against several of John's doctors and the hospital where he died. Several of the defendants settled for a reported $14 million, with the biggest settlement – a reported $9.4 million – coming from Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center.

Real Estate

In 1996, John Ritter paid $2.2 million for a home in Beverly Hills, California. Amy continued living in the home for several years after John's death. Yasbeck put the home on the market for $6.5 million in 2017, and it sold for $55,000 over her asking price in August of that year.
