Jimmy and Jane married in 1981, and have four children, son Jackie and daughters Mahalia, Eliza-Jane and Elly-May. 

The rocker recently said that being cooped up at home during Covid lockdown had done wonders for his marriage. 

The couple uploaded daily videos of themselves performing in their loungeroom during the pandemic, and as a result have grown even closer.

‘The intimacy of doing those songs in Covid with Jane, as much as that connected us to the rest of the world and kept us tethered to our other life of touring, it also brought Jane and I closer together,’ he told The Herald Sun in April.

In his memoir Working Class Man, Jimmy revealed it was a case of love at first sight when he first met Thai-born Jane in 1979.  

‘I’d met a lot of girls in my life, but no one had ever stopped me in my tracks like that girl did,’ he wrote.

‘She was way out of my class, but I loved her from the minute I saw her. Jane would change my life.’
