Jack Matfin Bell Wiki
He’s only known as the son of the famous actors Jamie Bell and Evan Rachel Wood, born on 29 July 2013, so Jack Matfin Bell’s age is nine, but since his birth, he’s made the headlines as a celebrity child. According to the few photos of the boy, he appears to have inherited his father’s blue eyes and blonde hair, but because his father doesn’t have an Instagram account, and his mother’s profile is private, we’re unable to learn more about Jack’s appearance, as the photos circulating on the internet were taken when he was a toddler.
Both of his parents prefer to keep their son out of the spotlight, but it’s assumed that Jack is in elementary school.
How did his parents meet? Are they married?
Jamie Bell and Evan Rachel Wood met at the Sundance Film Festival in 2004, although many people think that they first met while they were both starring in the music video for the song Wake Me Up When September Ends” by Green Day in 2005, but they were already a couple during the filming of the video. They broke up in 2006, but reconciled in 2011.
On 30 October 2012, Jamie and Evan exchanged their wedding vows in a small ceremony held in California. In 2013, they welcomed their son, but in May 2014 announced their separation.
After they divorced, they had joint custody over Jack, however, in December 2021, Evan took Jack to Nashville, which Jamie did not approve of. He sued Evan, and the custody battle is still on; Evan claims that she took Jack away from Los Angeles to protect him.
Allegedly, Evan’s ex-fiancée, Marilyn Manson, whom she accused of abuse, has threatened her, and she’s afraid that he would harm Jack, so she moved with him. Jamie, on the other hand, accused Evan of preventing him from seeing their son for some other reasons.
