Jamie has a three-year-old son from a previous marriage with Evan Rachel Wood. The pair split back in 2014 after 19 months of marriage. Speaking about co-parenting following their divorce, Evan told People magazine: "I think any separation, whether it's amicable or not, is always difficult. But we're always doing our best, and the most important thing is our son always comes first. At the end of the day, he’s our priority and what matters. Whatever issues the parents have, you’ve just got to get over that and put it to the side,” she says. “Another reason why kids are a gift: They get you out of your stuff and you let go of the things that don’t serve you or them much faster."
