You wanted to know . . . if there is any update on the status of Jimmy McNichol's marriage
A reader asked for an update "on the status of Jimmy McNichol's marriage." Jimmy hasn't been in the spotlight for a while and he has kept his life fairly private. He is not separated or divorced, and to the best of my knowledge, he is living a quiet life with his family.
James Vincent McNichol, known professionally as Jimmy McNichol, was born on July 2, 1961 in Los Angeles, California,, the son of James McNichol, a carpenter, and his wife, Carolyn. The eldest of three siblings, Jimmy has a sister, Kristy (born 1962) and a brother, Tommy (Born 1965). Kristy won an Emmy for her portrayal teenaged daughter Letitia "Buddy" Lawrence in the television drama Family.
Jimmy's parents divorced and Carolyn raised her children as a single parent. She supported the family and became the business manager for Jimmy and Kristy. Jimmy and Kristy began their modelling and acting careers together, Tommy was raised separately by a grandparent in Burbank, California. He studied computer science.
In 1978, Jimmy and Kristy recorded a disco album together titled Kristy and Jimmy McNichol, which included the single "He's So Fine," a cover of the Chiffons' 1963 hit. Jimmy and Kristy's version of the song reached number 70 on the Billboard chart. The siblings also hosted several ABC specials and Saturday morning previews. Kristy achieved success in her acting career, but she suffered from bipolar disorder. She quit acting at only 24 years of age.
Jimmy is now 62 years old. In 1997, he married Renee Nash. They have two children, a son named Nash (born late 1997), and a daughter, Ellis (born late 1998). Jimmy and Renee's son, Nash, attended Fort Lewis College and launched his own business called Tech-Nichol. He repairs cellphones and electronics. Ellis graduated Animas High School in Colorado in June of 2017. She then enrolled in Lewis and Clark University to pursue a degree in sociology and human services.
Jimmy also has another daughter, Kellee Maize, from a past relationship. He wasn't aware of his other daughter. He had no idea about her until they met in 2010. Kellee was born in Pennsylvania. She was adopted and raised by Terry and Christine Maize. She is a singer, rapper and songwriter.
According to her website, Kellee was born in the 1980s. Other sources list her birthdate as January 18, 1980. According to a 2022 Closer Weekly article, Kellee has two children, a daughter named Soraya and a son, Mateo, with her husband, Joey Rahimi, making Jimmy McNichol a grandfather. Kellee's adoptive father, Terry, has passed away, and Kellee refers to Jimmy as "Pops."
