And while the duo remained together for the better part of the decade, things got wobbly in 2002 and the pair got divorced the very same year. For her part, Gina has disappeared from the media and looks to spend the rest of her life in private. On the other hand, Jimmy went on to marry writer Molly McNearny and the pair have enjoyed a blissful married life. In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Gina Kimmel.

Gina Maddy Kimmel was born on December 13, 1964, in United States. Born and raised in the states, Gina has not revealed much about her early life, and details on her siblings and early life are incredibly hard to come by. On the academic side of things, Gina graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from North Illinois University in 1985 and continued her education at Arizona State University up until 1988.
Career, Jimmy, and Marriage:
Gina met Jimmy during their time at Arizona State University, and while the talk show host never got his degree, Gina continued through her education.

She also made television appeareances on “The Man Show” making 17 appearances from 1999-2002.
Her artistic talents are well reflected in her kids, as her eldest daughter Katie Kimmel has followed Gina in fashion design while the younger, Kevin Kimmel is trying to make it as an actor. Kevin provided his voice on six episodes of the television series Crank Yankers from 2003-2204 and was on the additional crew for “The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail “(2014), and “Tubbin’ with Tash” (2013) and in the sound department for “Tosh.0” (2009).
While Jimmy and Gina enjoyed an amazing relationship for the better half of their career, things got out of hand at the turn of the new decade. In 2002, it was reported that Jimmy had cheated on Gina with comedian Sarah Silverman. While the incident didn’t gather much traction, cracks started to appear in Jimmy and Gina’s relationship. Things finally got to the breaking point and the pair called things off the very same year. Following the divorce, Jimmy continued her relationship with Silverman until 2008, before getting together with Molly McNearney, whom he married in 2013.
Following the divorce, Gina stayed single for some time before eventually moving on with Chris Jones. Chris is an American veteran who served in Army.
