Actress and supermodel Angie Everhart finally found true love, and now she’s happily sharing her life — and gorgeous Hollywood Hills home — with her fiancé and their blended family.

She’d been dating entrepreneur Carl Ferro for nearly a year when, in February 2013, both of their leases came up. They each have a child (Angie’s son, Kayden, 5, and Carl’s daughter, JoAnn, 8) and a dog (Angie’s Bernese mountain dog, Duke, and Carl’s golden retriever, Quimby), making for a full house.

“We wanted to live together to make sure we could live together,” Angie tells ‘Closer.’

Fortunately, everything’s working out just fine. “Kayden and JoAnn started calling each other brother and sister on their own — we never pushed for it,” Angie, 45, says with a smile. “They love each other.”

The move came at the perfect time. Within a couple of months of settling into their four-bedroom, three-bathroom, 2,700-square-foot hilltop rental home, Angie was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. She had surgery to remove her thyroid, followed by another operation for neck pain in May.

While she’s suffered some side effects like memory loss from her medication, Angie is “all right,” she says. “I have no cancer.”

“When things get tough, Carl, JoAnn and Kayden continually make me laugh and smile,” she shares. “I’ve got good people in my life.”
