Nancy Ellen Walls was born on July 19, 1966 in Cohasset, Massachusetts. She grew up in the area with her sister Tish, and attended high school in Cohasset, before enrolling at Boston College.

Walls met Steve Carell while she was taking classes at the famed The Second City comedy troupe in Chicago, Illinois. He was teaching a class she was taking and the two hit it off.

Their wedding took place at a church in Massachusetts. They have since had two children together. Their daughter, Elisabeth, was born in 2001 while their son, John, was born in 2004.
In 2010, Nancy and Steve paid $6 million for a home in LA’s Toluca Lake neighborhood. They bought the home from the estate of the late actor Jonathan Winters. They proceeded to tear down the existing home and built a 6,600 square-foot mansion. The traditional style house home has 6 bedrooms, and 5 bathrooms. The entry to the home has a double gated circular drive that leads to the front door. The home features a traditional design with large kitchen, open living room and formal dining room, and the master suite is located upstairs. The home is surrounded by dense, mature shade trees. The backyard features a free form swimming pool with pool house and tennis courts.
In 2012 they sold a former Toluca Lake home for $5.1 million.
Back in their native Massachusetts, Nancy and Steve own a four-bedroom home in the town of Marshfield. They also own and sometimes personally operate the Marshfield Hills General Store. The store is primarily managed by Nancy’s sister.
