She was super involved in sports growing up

Per her bio on her website, Angela grew up "on a cattle and hog farm in rural Iowa," where she was heavily involved in sports, including basketball, volleyball, softball, track, gymnastics and springboard diving.

She went to Northwestern University

Her experience with springboard diving earned her a scholarship to Northwestern University, where she eventually graduated with a BA in Communication Studies, per her website.

She actually went to Northwestern University at the same time as Meghan Markle. Following the Duchess of Sussex's royal wedding to Prince Harry, Angela shared a tribute to her "fellow '03 Northwestern alum" on Instagram.

After graduating from Northwestern, Angela headed out west to Los Angeles where she utilized her background as a diver and gymnast to do stunt work, per her website. Though she only planned to stay in L.A. for a few months before enrolling in graduate school, life had other plans and she's been there ever since.

Angela first met Alfonso in 2011 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. However, she didn't know who he was when they first met.

"I didn't know who he was at the time," she recalled to Yahoo Lifestyle in 2018. "He told me he was a director, which [he was]. And I was very much in the 'I don't want to date anyone in entertainment.'"

In fact, Alfonso says he had to make the "first, second, third moves" to get Angela's attention. Though she had initially planned to cut their first date short to watch that night's episode of Grey's Anatomy, she ended up sticking around as she fell for the actor.

"I don't think it was more than 10 minutes that went by, and I was like, huh, he's different than I thought," Angela told Yahoo Lifestyle. From there, they began dating more seriously.

She married Alfonso Ribeiro in 2012

After a few months of dating, Alfonso popped the question during a romantic trip to Lake Tahoe in July 2012. They eventually tied the knot that October in California.

"Last night I got married to the most incredible woman in the world," Alfonso tweeted after the ceremony, with Angela adding, "1st morning waking up as Mrs. Ribeiro = AMAZING!!! So happy and blessed!"
