During Jim Carrey’s successful career as one of the greatest comedic minds of our generation, you probably asked yourself what it would be like to be around the funny man 24/7. You might have even wistfully wondered what it would be like to have a dad as cool as Jim.
Well, you might not know this but Jim Carrey already has a child of his own; 30-year-old Jane Carrey. Considering the megastar that is Jim Carrey, it’s a little surprising that his only child has managed to remain relatively low-key during his career. Who is Jane Carrey and how has she managed to escape the spotlight? Here are some things you might not know about her:
Jane Erin Carrey was born in Los Angeles, California, unlike her father who is a true-born Canadian. Her birth mother, Melissa Womer, is Jim Carrey’s ex-wife to whom he was married to for 8 years.
Jane Carrey actually tried to get her foot in the door of the entertainment industry when she auditioned for the hit TV show ‘American Idol’ in 2012. Before that, she had been a waitress for 6 years.
Jane has said she has no interest in living off her dad’s fame and fortune and wants to make a name for herself. Although she didn’t make it to the finals on ‘American Idol’, she did start The Jane Carrey Band.
She also has a son, Jackson Riley Santana, which she shares with her ex-husband Alex Santana. Jane and the ‘Blood Money’ lead singer separated after 11 months of marriage. When Jackson was born Jim instantly became a doting grandparent, sharing a photo of his grandchild with the caption, ‘Jackson Riley Santana, My Grandson, Born today! This is what 7lbs.11oz. of California dynamite looks like!’
And the number one thing you don’t know about Jane Carrey? She’s a spitting image of her famous dad! Just look at that infectious smile. With her dad relatively MIA these days, let’s hope Jane continues her music career so we’ll see more of her in the future!
