Personal life[edit]

A. J. Langer was born in Columbus, Ohio, daughter of Deana, an audiologist who owned a hearing aid distribution company, and Gary Langer, who worked in sales for a wholesale fashion distributor.[1] She moved to the San Fernando Valley with her family at age five, and began using her initials to join an all-boys baseball team three years later. She has one older brother, Kirk.

Langer married attorney Charles Courtenay, Lord Courtenay, the son of the Hugh Courtenay, 18th Earl of Devon, in a civil ceremony in 2004. A formal wedding took place on April 30, 2005, in Los Angeles, California.[2] In January 2014, Langer and Courtenay permanently relocated their family to London. Upon the death of the current Earl, Langer (who holds the courtesy title "Lady Courtenay") will assume the title of Countess of Devon, and will relocate to the family seat at Powderham Castle. The couple have two children, respectively a daughter and a son:

  • The Hon. Joscelyn Skye (born January 31, 2007)
  • The Hon. Jack Haydon Langer Courtenay (born August 2009).

In her spare time, Langer raises awareness and money for the research and treatment of fibromyalgia, from which she herself suffers.[3]
