Even though her ex-husband is one of the world’s most known and talked about late night host, Gina Kimmel is barely recognized. Married to Jimmy Kimmel before his relationship with Molly McNearney, Gina and Jimmy met during high school. 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 was born on the 13th of December, 1964, to James Maddy. 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 the 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. The pair tied the knot in 1988 and had their first child, a daughter Katie Kimmel born in 1991. Katie was followed by a younger son Kevin Kimmel born in 1993.
As on the professional side of things, Gina worked as a fashion designer and currently owns a line of vintage lingerie under the label of Maddy James. Over the years, Gina has also tried her hand in production and worked as a costume designer and wardrobe supervisor in several shows and movies including Party Like the Queen of France, The Man Show, and Party Like the Rich and Famous.
Her artistic talents are well reflected in her kids, as her eldest daughter Katie Kimmel has followed Gina in fashion designing while the younger, Kevin, is trying to make it as an actor.
Divorce and finding love:
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. On the other end, Gina has maintained a low profile following the split and prefers to keep herself out of the media. A glance at her social media profiles shows that Gina is in a relationship with Chris Jones. Details on the pair’s relationship are incredibly hard to come by so fans are left wondering if the pair are engaged or have already taken the big step.
