Wolfgang Van Halen Siblings
Wolfgang was born on 16th March 1991 in Santa Monica, California. His mother is Valerie Bertinelli.
Valarie Bertinelli married Eddie Van Halen in 1981. A decade later, they welcomed Wolfgang. After more than 25 years together, Valarie & Eddie divorced.
A year after the divorce, Eddie married his publicist, Janie Liszewski. Even Valarie attended the wedding. Before tying the knot, Eddie & Janie had dated for 3 years.
From his marriages, Eddie had only one son. Thus, Wolfgang Van Halen didn’t have siblings to look after while growing up.
From his dad’s side, Wolfgang had an uncle named Alex. Meanwhile, his uncles from the maternal side include Mark, Patrick, Drew, and David.
Announcing his father’s death on Twitter, Wolfgang wrote— “I can’t believe I’m having to write this, but my father, Edward Lodewijk Van Halen, has lost his long and arduous battle with cancer this morning.”
He then added— “He was the best father I could ever ask for. Every moment I’ve shared with him on and off stage was a gift. My heart is broken and I don’t think I’ll ever fully recover from this loss. I love you so much, Pop.”

Wolfgang Net Worth
Being a son of a legendary musician, Wolfgang discovered his calling early on. For his 10th birthday, Eddie gifted him with a drum set after noticing his interest in the instrument.
Eventually, Wolfgang picked interest in bass and guitar. He would even learn to play keyboards.
By 2006, Wolfgang was an official Van Halen member, replacing its former bassist Michael Anthony. His first album “A Different Kind of Truth” with the band, however, wouldn’t arrive until 2012.
Wolfgang’s next venture was with Tremonti. After taking the heir from its previous bassist Brian Marshall, he went to record albums: “Cauterize” and “Dust”.
Circa 2020, Wolfgang released a project titled “God Bless the Renegades” with Clint Lowery. Several years ago, Eddie had hinted Wolfgang was working on a solo album.
At the time of his passing away, Eddie Van Halen owned $100 million net worth. Wolfgang Van Halen, as the musician’s only child, could lay claim to the entire fortune.
Also, several publications online noted Wolfgang Van Halen had a personal net worth of over $10 million.

Andraia last appeared on Wolfgang’s Instagram on 16th March 2019. Chances were she was no longer in the running to become his wife.
