“Yellowstone” co-creator Taylor Sheridan’s wife, Nicole Sheridan, nee Muirbrook, recently posted to Instagram a throwback photo of herself and Sheridan from Esquire magazine.
In the photo, Nicole is in the foreground, staring off into the distance, while Sheridan sneaks a glance at his wife.
“#tbt @esquire,” the actress and model posted.
‘Yellowstone’ Creator’s Wife Is a Cowgirl
Muirbrook was born Nicole Star Katter in Salt Lake City, Utah, per IMDb. She has acted in movies such as “The Human Contract” as well as the TV shows “Dark Blue” and “How I Met Your Mother.” Before she married Sheridan, Muirbrook was married to editor and producer Christian Wagner.
Like her husband, Muirbrook is a big fan of “Yellowstone” and the cowboy lifestyle generally. In December, she won a cutting horse competition in Fort Worth. The event benefitted the Careity Foundation, a nonprofit that helps cancer patients who are struggling financially to get through the treatment process.
“Man, it’s just an incredible experience,” Muirbrook said after the event. “I’m so happy and proud to be part of this event so dear to my heart and many others. What a night. I just, it’s like, I can’t even—this is like the best night of my life, by the way.”
The actress added that she was “on cloud nine” after winning her first buckle.
Sheridan Moved His Family Back to Texas Where He Grew Up
In recent years, Sheridan moved his family out of Los Angeles and eventually back to Texas, not far from where he grew up. He told Cowboys & Indians magazine last year that he left L.A. as soon as he could.
“My wife’s from up in Wyoming, and my mother lives up there, so we moved there for a number of years, until I finally convinced her to come try my home state,” Sheridan said. “And I moved her to Texas on August 1st, because I figured I might as well just pull the Band-Aid off quick. She didn’t understand the heat for a bit, but then she figured it out, and now she’s a Texan.”
Muirbrook and Sheridan divide their time between a main house with a horse ranch and a ranch out by Jacksboro, where Sheridan keeps their cattle. His horses take part in “Yellowstone.”
Sheridan is fortunate that his wife is a Texan now because as far as he’s concerned, Texans are friendlier people than any other citizens in the country. He said when people fly in to meet with him from California or New York, they’re all struck by how happy Texans seem to be.
“It’s like, well, they’re happy because they live in Texas and they’re friendly because they’re happy,” Sheridan said.
