It seems they bond as a family very well and spend time with each other during vacations. Moreover, Foster also seems close to Stark’s long-term boyfriend.

Who Is Stark’s Boyfriend?

Zoey Stark is in a relationship with Tom Howard, a former wrestler & actor famous for his time as a wrestler in K-1 and Pro Wrestling ZERO1-MAX in Japan.

Howard, also known as Thomas Merrett Howard, was born on December 26, 1969.

The wrestler debuted in 1994 and took a break from competition in 2006. Some of Howard’s ring names were Zuma, KGB, and The Big Time.

After retirement, Thomas Howard is into business venture; he is co-owner of production companies: The Fight Pros and Rebirth Productions.

As reported, Zoey and Tom began dating in 2013 but have kept further details of their relationship under wraps.

Despite an age gap of 24 years, the love between the two has cut off the stereotypical comments about their relationship regarding their age.

They are yet to get married or engaged.

Aside from being a lovable girlfriend, Zoey is the stepmother of four kids from Tom’s previous relationship.

The retired wrestler is the father of two daughters: Jesse (oldest) & Taylor, and two sons: Chris & Thomas Jr.

Zoey Stark Alliance, Trish Stratus

Trish Stratus and Zoey Stark’s deadly collaboration has already begun to pay off.

On an underpowered Becky Lynch, the newly assembled partners unleashed themselves last night on Raw.

The combination of the recently selected Raw superstar from NXT and the WWE Hall of Famer was justified in this game.

Stark decided to play smart- she collaborated with the GOAT of wrestling, Trish Stratus.

During the game, Stark, obeying Trish’s order, went to neutralize Lynch but got punched in the face.

However, the duo immediately took control of the situation and started to release themselves onto the defenseless Lynch.

After they got the wrestler’s victory, the pair put a Thank You, Trish’ tee on Becky’s body in the corner.

The audience is expecting more games from Trish and Zoey. There is a chance of a full-fledged battle between this partner and SummerSlam in August.
