At 46, 'Days Of Our Lives' Star Alison Sweeney Is Married To A Cop & Has 2 Beautiful Kids With Him

For her depiction of a legendary character in the NBC serial opera "Days of Our Lives," Alison Sweeney has gained notoriety. Although she may be most known for her role in one of the most popular television shows ever, she has also worked on a number of other critically acclaimed film and television productions. But throughout the past 20 years, she juggled pursuing her job while also getting married and having children. She continued to pursue her love of performing while making sure to prioritize her family.

Alison Ann Sweeney, an American actress who was born on September 19, 1976, has also explored careers as a filmmaker, novelist, and host of reality television shows.

When she was five years old, Sweeney made her movie debut. But it was an advertising for a photography business; it wasn't a part in a movie or on television. But it didn't take her long to make her acting debut; a few years later, she made an appearance in a "Tales from the Darkside" episode.

She then had appearances in various TV shows, such as "Family Man" and "Brand New Life." However, she didn't get her big break via the "Days of Our Lives" until she was 16 years old, despite being a huge admirer of the program. She received four Soap Opera Digest Awards, a fan-voted Daytime Emmy Award, and a Daytime Emmy nomination for her portrayal of Samantha "Sami" Brady on the program.

In addition to her job, she is a loving wife and mother. In 2019, Sweeney talked openly about her marriage to David Sanov, who she had known all of her childhood thanks to their mutual friends' parents.

Sweeney stated to Access Live that she "totally had a crush on him" growing up, despite the fact that she acknowledged it wasn't love at first sight. However, it wasn't until much later that they started to feel anything for one another. She informed her mother immediately away that she wanted him when she learned that he had been hired as a police officer.

"When I learned that he had become a police officer, I knew I had to go visit him. I need you to make this happen for me, mom. When I did run into Sanov, she continued.

In a 2013 interview, she said that she has always been a fan of males in uniform. I love a man in uniform, she exclaimed. They were wed in 2000.

She occasionally appeared on "Days of Our Lives," but she never actually left the program. But after being on "Days of Our Lives" for more than 20 years, she revealed in 2014 on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" that she would be quitting the show.

Sweeney gave an explanation of why she decided to quit the program, citing the need to prioritize her two children and her family.

"I just have, you know, worked so much and my son (Benjamin) is 9 and my daughter (Megan) just turned 5, so I just want to be with them and enjoy my last year," the speaker said. I'll be on 'Days' the entire year," she declared.

She has also made appearances in a number of other programs over the past 20 years, including "Friends" and "Fear Factor." She also made an attempt at presenting "The Biggest Loser."

The majority of her significant works in recent years, including "Chronicle Mysteries" and "The Wedding Veil" trilogy, were made-for-television movies for Hallmark. She did, however, work on other film and television projects in between.

She made the decision to quit "Days of Our Lives" once more in 2022 since her contract on the show hindered her from pursuing her love for creating and producing tales for Hallmark.

"I love playing Sami, but no, going full-time is not the plan for me," she stated. "I create and develop material for Hallmark and other streaming platforms, and I adore having the opportunity to work on my own projects and produce. It has truly been a delight and a new, exciting, enjoyable task for me.

The ability to enjoy the best of both worlds makes me feel really fortunate. Going back to "DAYS" feels like coming home, the actress continued.

According to her social media updates, Sweeney is enjoying her life right now since she gets to spend time with her family while simultaneously producing and appearing in Hallmark movies.

She published a family portrait of her spouse, her two kids, and their pets in December 2022.

"Despite a busy December, we are forward for Christmas! A good holiday weekend to you all, Sweeney wished in her Instagram message.

Ben's 18th birthday was celebrated by Sweeney on Instagram in February 2023, and she even "tortured" him into posing for a picture. With her "kind and sincere" kid, she couldn't believe how quickly time passed.

We learned that he is also brilliant and considerate as he progressed through school. But his wonderful sense of humor is my favorite because he enjoys all the same 80s comedy as I love! We are eager to follow his future developments, she remarked.

In the meanwhile, Sweeney declared in March 2023 that she will reprise her Hannah Swensen television movie role.
