Ellie Kemper is an American actresses and comedian with an estimated net worth of $4 million. She was born on May 2, 1980. She was born in Kansas City, Missouri to Dotty Ann and David Kemper. Her mother and father are some of the wealthiest people in the state, and it’s because she’s got a very famous family believe it or not. Her father is CEO of Commerce Bancshares, a company her family founded many, many years ago. In fact, her grandmother is Mildred Lane Kemper, and she has an art museum of her own in at the Washington University campus in St. Louis. She became the name of the building when she provided the university $5 million to build it.
Her family decided to move to St. Louis when she was just a child, and she went to some of the best schools in the area. She was raised a very wealthy child and had all the privileges that are afforded to children with her type of family. She attended the best schools, she had the best education and she learned the best of both worlds from her family. She even went to school in a place where she could learn theater, and she actually had a teacher you might recognize. His name is Jon Hamm. She graduated from Princeton in 2002 with a degree in English. She played sports by joining teams and sitting on the bench. She knew she was not athletic, but she wanted to act and be funny, so that’s what she focused her time on doing.
One of her first real jobs was a Kmart commercial in which she went camping. She was given a SAG card after that, and she felt as if she was on top of the world. She was funny, and she began doing late night comedy shows as a guest appearance. She worked hard until she was given her big break with “Funny or Die,” and that’s when she became more famous than ever. However, it was her job as Erin Hannon on The Office that really made her famous and people began to know her by name, recognize her face and really get to know her. She’s become more famous than ever in the past few years, and she’s now been featured on dozens of television shows and movies.
Raised Roman Catholic, she is a married woman. She dated Michael Koman for many years before the couple became engaged in 2012. They decided to make their engagement a short one, marrying only a few months later in 2012. They have been married now for almost four years, and the couple just announced in 2016 that they are expecting their first baby together. There is no word yet on whether or not the baby is a boy or girl, or how far along she is in her pregnancy. Her husband is a writer for television shows, as well as a television creator she met when she first began working in Hollywood.
