John Oliver’s wife, Kate Norley, 43, is an American and U.S. Armed Forces veteran. She was born in Arlington, Virginia, on May 25, 1978.
John Oliver dragged Fox News Channel into the ring on Sunday, February 19, 2023, during the tenth-season premiere of Last Week Tonight.
He shared the court filings that were made public last week in Dominion Voting Systems’ 1.6 billion dollar defamation lawsuit against Fox News related to the 2020 election fraud claims.
Dominion Voting System, which sells electronic voting systems and software, is suing Fox News and parent company Fox Corporation, accusing that some Fox News workers deliberately amplified false claims.

Kate Norley can also be found on IMDb, as she appeared in a short film in 2009 called “Tran.si.tions,” as an unknown subway passenger. She is well-known for her respectable work in the ranks.
After 9/11 happened, she went into the Army, working as a mental health specialist, combat medic, and counselor to soldiers in Iraq.
However, more than a decade into their connections, Oliver is sometimes spotted wearing a First Cavalry Division lapel pin to honor his veteran wife’s unit in Iraq.
Once John Oliver’s wife returned to the U.S., she began fervently advocating for more funding for veterans, which resulted in her appearances on FOX News and other news channels.
After Norley and Oliver met at the 2008 RNC, they exchanged a few emails and began to date each other shortly after. John proposed to her in 2010 while vacationing in St. Thomas.
The dating couple tied the knot in October 2011 in a hush-hush ceremony after three years together.
John Oliver once said about his veteran wife, “I’m incredibly proud of her for everything that she did and has done and is continuing to do and supporting everyone who she has served with. She went through a lot and I got to hear all the stories what it was like from her… She’s one of my heroes.”
The couple has been blessed with two sons, born in 2018 and 2015. In 2018 Oliver announced the birth of his second son after receiving an Emmy Award and telling the audience later that night, “We have a three-month-old.”

She was born into a well-to-do family and studied at the Episcopal High School in Arlington, Virginia. Her parents divorced when she was 4, and she opted to get herself enlist in the Army after she witnessed the 9/11 attacks in the United States of America.
Her parents, Walt Norley (father) and Pam Mannion (mother), though not opposed th the decision, discussed the change with her. They realized too early that her daughter was highly determined and would see till the end of her ambition, and they agreed.
She began and completed her beginner-level training in Ft. Jackson, South Carolina. Kate enrolled in medical training and finished it at Ft. Sam Houston, Texas.
Norley joined the 1st Cavalry Division of Fort Hood in Texas as part of the first reinforcements.
At the age of 16, she was severely injured in a devastating car crash while on her way to a football game and suffered a head injury. Her mother helped her back to health, and she had to relearn many basic skills like writing and reading.
