She is Jimmy’s eldest daughter, born in 1991 to his first wife Gina Maddy. She is an artist and designer who sells her own home goods and artwork. She married Will Logsdon in 2021.

Jimmy was 24 years old when Katie was born and he was struggling financially. “I would work from 4 in the morning till around 11 in the morning, and at the time my ex-wife worked too,” he said in a 2017 interview with Vulture.

“So I’d pick Katie up from day care as quickly as I could, because we couldn’t afford the $5 an hour to keep her there longer. I’d have her all day till 6 or 6:30, when my ex-wife got home. That was a hard schedule. I was exhausted all the time.”

But Jimmy and Gina — who divorced in 2002 — did a great job at raising Katie. She went to college at The School of Art Institute of Chicago and now she has her own business selling her own home goods and artwork, which she promotes on Instagram.

In Sept. 2021, Katie married her longtime boyfriend Will Logsdon. Jimmy appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show before the wedding and talked so highly about his son-in-law. “I’ll tell you, the guy is great,” Jimmy said. “His name is Will and he’s a great guy. And if he wasn’t, he’d be dead right now. That’s how we operate in my family.”

Kevin frequently posts his famous father on his Instagram, where he’s very active. He’s even partially followed in Jimmy’s footsteps by pursuing a career in the entertainment industry. He worked in the sound department on several television shows including Survivor and Big Brother.

Kevin got married to his girlfriend Nicole at Jimmy’s fly fishing lodge in Idaho in September 2022. Kevin is always gushing over his wife in the sweetest Instagram posts. On Valentine’s Day 2023, Kevin snapped a pic of Nicole, and wrote, “Happy Valentine’s Day to the love of my life and the love of her life, a French lemon coconut cake @nicolekimmel.”
