Who is Dr. Pol’s adopted son? Charles Pol – Wiki Bio

Charles Pol was born in Central Michigan, USA, on 6 March 1979, so under the zodiac sign of Pisces and holding American nationality – he’s mostly popular for being an adoptive son of Dr. Pol, and for being part of the main cast of Dr. Pol’s reality TV show entitled “The Incredible Dr. Pol”.

School and early life

Charles spent his childhood in Central Michigan alongside his adoptive parents Dr. Jan Pol and Diane Pol, and his biological sister Kathy Pol who they adopted as well – his second sister is Diane Jr and she was adopted at the age of 18. As Charles hasn’t talked about his biological parents, nothing is known about them.

Charles was raised on a farm, and has been helping his father at his clinic since he was five years old – he was firstly doing mostly farm calls, and helping the animals he could, which he enjoyed, as he was and still is a big lover of animals, but eventually decided to go after a rather different profession than veterinary.  His parents supported his decision to become part of the entertainment industry, and with their help, he enrolled at the University of Miami, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in major communications in 2003.

A bit about Dr. Jan Pol

Charles’ father Dr. Jan Pol was born and raised in the Netherlands on his family’s farm, so has been surrounded by animals throughout his entire life. While he has launched his own show “The Incredible Dr. Pol”, he is also a writer, as he has published his best-selling book “Never Turn Your Back On An Angus Cow: My Life as a Country Vet”.

Charles has been actively working as a veterinarian since the ‘70s, and has allegedly had more than 23,000 clients, and worked with a wide variety of animals from mice and snakes to cows and horses. He can speak four languages fluently: English, Dutch, German, and French, and is considered to be the absolute favorite veterinarian in the US.

Charles’ career of an actor

Charles moved to Los Angeles as soon as he received his bachelor’s degree, and started working in production for some of the most popular US companies involved in films, including Paramount Pictures, Parkway Production, and Mirage Enterprises.

His career of an ‘actor’ – really TV celebrity – was launched in 2011, when he was cast in his father’s show “The Incredible Dr. Pol”, the idea originally his, and he’s now also works as the show’s executive producer. The show airs on the National Geographic channel, and follows Dr. Pol’s family and their team as they treat injured and sick animals, and help other farmers with whatever they can.

The show made them look as heroes, and actually many people living on farms close to them have stated that Dr. Pol’s family have made their lives of farmers a lot easier. Current cast members of the show include Dr. Jan Pol, Charles Pol, Diane Pol, Dr. Emily Thomas, and Dr. Brenda Grettenberger.

While Charles has mostly become popular thanks to this show, he has also appeared in “The Legend of Sheriff Gus Skinner” TV series in 2013, and “Calling Dr. Pol” series in 2014.

Dating and love life

Charles is not very keen to talk about his love life and sharing details with the public, but he has still allowed his fans to take a glimpse at his current relationship.


Charles met Beth Oakes while he was still attending high school, and the two soon became best friends, and throughout their teenage years, then stayed in contact when they went to different universities. Their status of close friends changed to being in a relationship in 2017 – they announced it during the 12th season of “The Incredible Dr. Pol” as they were both participants. On 27 January 2018, Charles uploaded a picture of a ring on Beth’s ring finger, meaning the two have been engaged for more than a year and a half now but still haven’t talked about exchanging their wedding vows.

While Charles hasn’t talked about any other girls he might have dated throughout the years, his sister Diane Jr uploaded a picture of Charles with a woman named Kelly in 2012, as they were going to a Halloween party, and she addressed her as his girlfriend. Neither Kelly nor Charles have confirmed that they were dating, but even if they were, their relationship obviously hasn’t worked out.

Hobbies and likes

Charles is part of the entertainment industry, and is mostly focused on his career, but there are numerous other things he is interested in.

Charles is a family kind of person, and spends most of his free time with his fiancé and his mother and father. He is still a big lover of animals, and sometimes helps his father at his clinic – although he was raised on a farm surrounded by various animals, he doesn’t have a pet today as he doesn’t have time to take good care of one. He is very fond of watching World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. (WWE) matches and often shares WWE gifts on his Twitter account.

Charles has his favorite movies and TV series – his favorite movie of all times is “Terminator” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, while his favorite TV series is, of course, “The Incredible Dr. Pol”.

Appearance and net worth

Charles is currently 40 years old. He has short brown hair, brown eyes, and brown beard, while he hasn’t shared his exact height and weight with the public.

According to authoritative sources, his current net worth is estimated to be more than $1 million, and rising thanks to his career in entertainment.

Social media presence

Charles might not be as active on the internet as one might have thought, as he is not using Instagram – however, he is very active on other networks such as Twitter, launched in August 2012.  He also has a Facebook profile, but it appears that he is using it just to stay in touch with his friends and family.
