Time can only tell but for the meantime, you may continue reading below to know more about Elisabeth Anne Carell.
Steve Carell Kids 2017 - Daughter Elisabeth
When Steve Carell and Nancy Walls tied the knot on August 5, 1995, parenthood didn’t immediately occur.
Elisabeth Anne “Annie” W. Carell was born on May 26, 2001, a time when her then 38-year-old father was still part of the award-winning American news satire “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” as one of the correspondents.
She shares the same birthday with Helena Bonham Carter (1966), Lauryn Hill (1975), and Lenny Kravitz (1964).
Though her parents didn’t say anything in public regarding their choice of name for their first child, consulting an article by the Catholic TV network EWTN will enlighten people that in Hebrew, “Elizabeth” (its Dutch and German form is “Elisabeth”) means “worshiper of God.”
One could speculate that since Steve is a Catholic, he picked a biblical name for his daughter. In the Bible, Elizabeth gave birth to the great prophet, John the Baptist.
As for Annie’s second given name, “Anne,” the French form of “Anna,” it means “merciful” and “gracious” in Hebrew.
The 20-year-old Elisabeth Anne Carell stands 5 feet and 8 inches (1.77 meters) tall and currently busies herself as a college student.
The Washington-based think tank Pew Research Center classified people born from 1997 to 2012 as belonging to “Generation Z” or “Gen Z.”
Being born in 2001 – the year the 21st century started – makes Elisabeth Anne Carell a certified Gen Zer (in American English, “Zer” is pronounced as “zi-er”) or zoomer, a couple of terms used when referring to a Gen Z member.
An article published by the global management consulting firm McKinsey & Company regarded zoomers as “the first generation of true digital natives.”
If such a declaration holds true, then one might be surprised to learn that a Gen Zer or zoomer like Elisabeth Anne Carell appears to be actively using only one social media site as of this writing.
The profile page of her Instagram (she set it to “Private”) shows she only got six posts for her 1,500 followers. She, by the way, follows 1,353 people.
Checking her Facebook profile, it says she has 481 friends (surprisingly, her friends list is set to “Public”). Unless you are friends with her on Facebook, it would be difficult to tell how frequent she uses this ultra-popular social media platform because she has set her account to “Private.”
Steve Carell (Steven John Koch Carell) and Nancy Carell (Nancy Ellen Walls-Carell) both grew up in Massachusetts, with Steve born in the town of Concord in Middlesex County and Nancy from the town of Cohasset in Norfolk County.
Based from an interview with Steve Carell for The Guardian in 2013, their paths crossed in the ‘90s when Nancy enrolled in the comedy classes offered by The Second City Training Center in Chicago. In an improv class handled by Steve, himself, she was one of his students.
He admitted in the said interview that he “was immediately attracted” to Nancy.
In a 2015 guesting at “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” he shared to his fellow comedian, Ellen, how he would chat with Nancy in a bar located across The Second City. She was a bartender there, and one night he just got the right amount of courage to ask her out on a date.
They eventually got married and have become celebrity parents to Elisabeth Anne and John.
This year, they marked their 26th wedding anniversary – an incredible feat, mind you, particularly for celebrity couples.
Mr. and Mrs. Carell share the same professions: actor, comedian, producer, and writer. They were also alumni of the acclaimed TV shows “Saturday Night Live” and “The Daily Show.”
Steve Carell made Michael Scott a household name when he portrayed the role of, in a description by Rolling Stone, “the world’s worst boss,” in “The Office” from its pilot episode in 2005 until the show’s seventh season, which concluded in 2011. In 2016, the same magazine included “The Office” on its list of “100 Greatest TV Shows of All Time,” placing it at the 48th spot.
He starred in several top-grossing films, including “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” (2005), “Little Miss Sunshine” (2006), and “Get Smart” (2008). He also voiced Gru, the big boss of a multitude of yellow beings called Minions and an initially reluctant foster father, in the mega blockbuster “Despicable Me” (2010, 2013, 2017) franchise and in “Minions” (2015).
The husband-and-wife team created and produced the comedy series “Angie Tribeca” (2016-2018), which ran for four seasons.
On June 25, 2004, Elisabeth Anne Carell became a big sister at age 3, when her mother gave birth to a baby boy, whom her parents named John.
She and her only sibling instantly shared something common: both their names – “Anne” and “John” – are of Hebrew origin and means “gracious” (to be more specific, however, “John” means “God is gracious”).
John goes by the nickname, Johnny.
When Elisabeth Anne Carell was born, Steve Carell considered it a momentous chapter in his life, according to a 2013 interview he did for The Guardian.
“It changed my perspective on my career and on the world, on who I was,” he said.
For one, he attributed her birth to the success of an audition, where he actually “nailed it.”
Only a few days before that interview got published, Steve Carell described his daughter to E! News as “a fantastic person.”
“I love her,” he gushed over.
Nancy Carell disclosed to Stanford Medicine that it was a tough time for Elisabeth Anne and for the rest of the Carell family when her daughter went through the clinical trial supervised by Dr. Nadeau for her dairy allergy.
“Annie went through a lot,” said her mother.
But Nancy Carell was proud of how her daughter bravely faced everything.
“She has our admiration for life.”
When she got interviewed in 2010 for her alma mater, Boston College, Nancy Carell described her children as “hysterical.”
“We laugh quite a bit in our house,” she added.
That same year, Steve Carell told People magazine how his children “do something funny every day.”
As a whole, Steve Carell and Nancy Carell believe and appreciate how fortunate they are to have Elisabeth Anne and John in their lives.
In the interview for Boston College, when asked about “the most satisfying moment” concerning her personal life, Nancy Carell replied: “I think my children are good human beings.”
Steve Carell affirmed that in his interview for The Guardian when he said, “They respect us and listen to us. I don’t see that in all of their friends.”
The stars inform her that her zodiac sign is Gemini (May 22 - June 22), and for that, her traits should supposedly include a strong attachment to music, traveling, reading, and talking to people.
Some famous female Geminis include Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, and Natalie Portman.
The birth flower assigned to Elisabeth Anne Carell – and to all the others who were born in May – is the Lily of the Valley. As for the birthstone, it is the green gemstone called emerald, a “symbol of rebirth,” as stated by the American Gem Society.
Once in a while, as a child of celebrity parents, Elisabeth Anne Carell would be present with them in some Hollywood events.
On June 23, 2015, she and her family posed for pictures with “Glee” star Matthew Morrison and English actress-singer Laura Michelle Kelly at the backstage of New York City’s The Lunt Fontanne Theater. They went to see “Finding Neverland” on Broadway.
On January 6, 2016 in Los Angeles, Steve Carell and his family attended the unveiling ceremony of his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
On October 8, 2018, Elisabeth Anne Carell joined her family again, and this time, at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills, California, for the Hollywood premier of the drama “Beautiful Boy.”
At the after-party, she had some pictures taken with “Call Me by Your Name” (2017) star, Timothée Chalamet, the “beautiful boy” and Steve Carell’s son in the said film.
On November 17, 2018, she joined her mother and younger brother at the audience to catch Steve’s “Saturday Night Live” performance.
Despite the humble beginnings of their respective families, Mr. and Mrs. Carell strived to earn a college diploma.
Steve Carell got his in 1984 from Denison University in Ohio, with a Major in History and Theatre. Nancy Carell graduated from Boston College - Carroll School of Management in Massachusetts in 1988.
The couple seemingly wanted their two children to believe that school is cool.
When Elisabeth Anne Carell finished high school at Oakwood School in North Hollywood, California, it was time to take her formal education to the next level.
In March 2018, the Carells embarked on two campus tours: one at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and another one at the University of Michigan.
The events prompted a self-confessed Steve Carell fan in the person of Jessica Jung to compose an article that would convince her idol to choose her school for his daughter’s tertiary education. She posted it online on March 22, 2018 at The Odyssey Online, a media company where she is a member.
Jung’s article bears a screaming 19-word title that begins with the following eight words: “Steve Carell, Send Elisabeth to UMich, Not UW-Madison.” It has so far received 9,000 views.
So, where did Elisabeth Anne Carell decide to go? UW-Madison or UMich?
She selected Northwestern University (est. 1851) at Evanston, Illinois.
A “life event” on her Facebook profile tells that she started school at the said university on September 17, 2019. She indicated in her Instagram profile that she will belong to the Class of 2023.
For school year 2018-2019, Northwestern University was at number 27 at the list of the top 100 most expensive colleges in the U.S., according to CollegeCalc, a site that helps students compute college education expenses.
Who will turn down a slice of pizza or decline a serving of ice cream?
It might seem unlikely for someone to do that, but in the case of Elisabeth Anne Carell and all those like her who deal with a dairy allergy, they will.
If she consumes dairy products such as butter, cheese, and yogurt, it will trigger an allergic reaction, and she may feel bloated or nauseated, find it difficult to breath or swallow, deal with diarrhea, or experience pain in the abdominal area, warns WebMD, a health website.
So, yes, there will be no ice cream for her. Definitely no pizza, too. She could also develop a rash by eating dairy products or, worse, even pass out!
Stanford Medicine shared in an article posted on its website that Elisabeth Anne Carell compared the life of someone having a dairy allergy as “like living in a box.”
Nancy Carell told Stanford Medicine that when she learned about the works of Kari Nadeau, an immunologist who took up medicine at Harvard Medical School, she immediately contacted her, and it proved to be one excellent decision.
The Stanford University School of Medicine in California, where Dr. Nadeau serves as the Director of the Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research, designates her as “one of the nation’s foremost experts in adult and pediatric allergy and asthma.”
Dr. Nadeau helped Elisabeth Anne Carell to live outside her imaginary box, so to speak, by making her undergo an oral immunotherapy for her dairy allergy.
The task of preserving history falls on the shoulders of people like conservator-restorers and architects, but for celebrities, not to mention comedians… uh, well, why not?
In 2008, Steve Carell purchased the 790-square-foot, two-story Marshfield Hills General Store located at 165 Prospect Street, Marshfield, Massachusetts, primarily “to help to [sic] preserve a little piece of history,” revealed the multi-awarded actor during a 2009 communication with The Boston Globe.
Steve Carell, according to TheTravel, paid approximately half a million dollars to acquire the historic structure built in 1853 and poured in additional money for its glorious restoration.
In the future, Elisabeth Anne Carell and her younger brother will likely inherit this specialty and gift shop from their parents.
Marshfield Hills residents and other Massachusetts natives could only hope that the Carell siblings would also contribute to the preservation of the town’s, in Steve Carell’s own words, “little piece of history.”
With her Facebook and Instagram set in “Private” – and without acting like a creepy stalker or hiring a bunch of paparazzi – it will be difficult to know if she is currently in a relationship.
If she is, people can only guess if the boyfriend of Elisabeth Anne Carell is a private citizen, a celebrity like her parents, or a child of celebrity parents like her.
What if Steve Carell’s only daughter finally asks for his consent to go out on a date?
Then let’s hear the good ol’ wisdom of her witty father.
“Once she’s married and settled down, then she can go and have a date night,” said Steve Carell during a 2010 interview with People magazine.
That time, she was only 8.
Perhaps media outlets should interview him again now that his one and only princess, Elisabeth Anne Carell, turned 20 this 2021. No longer a kid, no longer a teenager.
