Who is Colleen Ballinger's husband Erik Stocklin?
Erik Flynn Stocklin, an American actor, was born on September 24, 1982. He is well known for his recurring roles on shows including 'Mistresses', 'Stalker' and 'Good Trouble', as well as his lead role in the Netflix original series 'Haters Back Off'.
Stocklin was born in the city of Freehold in New Jersey. In 2007, he graduated with a bachelor's degree in theatre from Southern Connecticut State University. He worked for the Elm Shakespeare Company in New Haven, Connecticut, for four summers during his college years. He also received his education at New York City's Circle in the Square Theatre School. He relocated to California in 2008.
He met Ballinger on set
The actor has guest-starred on 'The Vampire Diaries' (2011), 'Bones' (2014) and 'Timeless' (2018), among others. He has also appeared in national commercials for Marmot, Apple, Hyundai, Mazda and McDonald's. In 2016 and 2017, he co-starred in the Netflix series 'Haters Back Off', opposite series creator Ballinger, his future wife, whom he married in 2018. They started out as friends on the show set and Ballinger and her former husband split in late 2016, according to Life and Style Mag.
"Erik and I have a great relationship," she explained in a video, according to the report. "We knew we want to be married, we want to have a family together, we want to grow old together."
'I took about a million pregnancy tests'
The couple wed later the same year and have a son, Flynn Timothy Stocklin, who was born in December 2018. It was revealed in May this year that Stocklin and Ballinger were expecting their second child in that month, due in December. "I got pregnant at the beginning of this year and unfortunately I had a miscarriage and it was one of the most awful things I’ve ever been through, if not the most awful things I’ve ever been through," Ballinger said. "We knew that we immediately wanted to start trying to have another baby," Ballinger added.
"I took about a million pregnancy tests over the last few months, hoping that one would say positive, and every time it said negative, my heart shattered. I feel so grateful that it only took a few months for me to get a positive test because I know that there are people out there who try for years and years and years and continue to see that negative test," she said. She added that her unborn baby is due in December and is healthy. "I am a disaster, but as long as everything in the uterus is good, that’s okay. I can handle it. I’ve been through this before," she said.
