That is what Dave Grohl enjoys with his family of five which consists of his wife, Jordyn Blum, and three daughters.

Dave Grohl, a man who continues to command thousands of audiences in concerts and shows all over the world, is a humble family man. In this article, we discuss everything you need to know about his family, including details about his parents and siblings.

Dave Grohl’s Family Members

Dave Grohl was born into a close-knit family made up of himself, a sister named Lisa Grohl and parents James Grohl and Virginia Grohl. On his own, he has expanded the family through his marriage to Jordyn Blum which has produced three children, daughters Violet Maye, Harper Willow, and Ophelia Grohl.

Outside of his nuclear family, some of his known extended family members include paternal grandparents, Alois Grohl and Ruth V. Grohl. He also has two known uncles from his father’s side of the family – Tom Grohl and Daniel Grohl.

Who is His Wife – Jordyn Blum?

Dave Grohl got married to Jordyn Blum on the 2nd of August, 2003. His wife was born on the 28th of May, 1976, in Los Angeles.

Like a lot of women in the city, Blum wanted a career as a model or actress. She took the first step to achieve her dream at the age of 17, signing up for photo sessions and auditions. However, despite enjoying modest success as a model, she decided to switch profession and eventually became a producer for MTV.

While she was at MTV in the late 90s, she met Dave Grohl, and they dated for a short while. That is until Taylor Hawkins’ coma incident prompted the Foo Fighters’ lead singer to reevaluate his life. He rekindled his relationship with Blum and two years later, they got married in a very private ceremony.

Jordyn Blum continues to be a producer and director.
