The Sopranos actress has been married to the former Washington Nationals player since 2016. Following their wedding, Sigler told PEOPLE, “My dad has said to me on several occasions that Cutter is exactly who he would want for me.

Sigler, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when she was 20, admitted to PEOPLE in 2023 that she used to go through moments where she “would feel bad” that Cutter “didn’t know Jamie pre-MS.”

“I don’t know if there’s enough ways that I can describe my gratitude for him,” she said of her husband. “He’s made himself available to me in every way that I’ve needed support.”

So who is Jamie-Lynn Sigler’s husband? Here's everything to know about Cutter Dykstra and his relationship with the actress.

Cutter is the son of former New York Mets player and World Series champion Lenny Dykstra and the brother of baseball player Luke Dykstra. Like his father, Sigler’s husband pursued a career on the baseball field.

In December 2015, the Washington Nationals signed Cutter, a free agent, to a minor league contract. Over the course of his career, the athlete was assigned to several teams, including the Helena Brewers, Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, Syracuse Chiefs and Milwaukee Brewers, according to his page on the Major League Baseball’s website.

In April 2016, Cutter was assigned to the Harrisburg Senators, but was released months later.

Cutter met his future wife through mutual friends in 2012. PEOPLE previously reported that they were first introduced by Sweet Magnolias star JoAnna Garcia Swisher and her husband, former baseball player Nick Swisher.

“We just both knew,” Cutter told PEOPLE of falling in love with Sigler.

Sigler told him about her MS early on

The Big Sky actress confided in Cutter about her MS a week into their relationship.

Speaking to PEOPLE in 2023, Sigler said, “I grew up with this idea that people are only going to be attracted to you when you’re perfect, and it’s quite the opposite. MS gave me my superpower, which is vulnerability, because the more raw and real and open I am — and this has forced me to be that — the more beautiful connections are.”

When Sigler told Cutter about her MS early on in their relationship, the baseball pro “just wanted to make her feel not so alone.” He told PEOPLE in 2016 that he wanted Sigler “to know that I would always be there.”

Sigler said the support meant “everything” to her. She said, “It’s something I might have been able to keep to myself a little bit longer, but MS does affect things in your life like intimacy. And I wanted to be able to share that with him.”

“And he said, ‘That’s OK, it doesn’t change anything that I feel and doesn’t make me look at you differently,’ ” Sigler continued. “He’s given me the courage to be able to sit here today and talk about this.”

He and Sigler got engaged in 2013

Sigler announced her engagement to the baseball player in January 2013.

“So this just happened….,” she penned alongside a photo of herself wearing her new ring next to her fiancé. Meanwhile on X (formerly Twitter), Cutter wrote, “She said yes!!!”

The couple went on to tie the knot in 2016 at the Parker Palm Springs hotel in California. “We put so much heart and love into it,” the then-new bride told PEOPLE. “We wanted laid-back, not fancy, because that’s who we are as a couple.”

The pair’s son Beau, who was 2 at the time, wore a miniature tuxedo and held a baseball home plate that read: “Here comes my mommy.” The ceremony was officiated by the bride’s friend Lance Bass.

Lea Michele and Swisher were among the guests at the reception.

Cutter and Sigler have two sons. Less than a month after announcing their engagement, it was revealed that the actress and infielder were expecting their first child.

“We definitely thought it was going to be a slow relationship process and possibly an engagement — I felt like it was coming — so the baby definitely threw us for a loop,” Sigler said in April 2013.

Their first son, Beau Kyle Dykstra, was born on Aug. 28, 2013. Their second child, Jack Adam Dykstra, was born on Jan. 15, 2018.

He’s Sigler’s “favorite person”

Sigler gave her husband a sweet shout-out on his birthday in June 2023.

“You’re just the best,” she captioned a series of pictures of Cutter with his birthday dessert. “I posted this for you on your bday with one hour left in the day to spare you any birthday texts because you don’t love attention, even though you deserve it all. You’re my favorite person and you don’t have an Instagram so you need my phone to see this. I love you.”
