The couple keep their relationship private

Does Jimmy Carr have children?

Jimmy and Karoline, who live in north London, choose to keep their long-term relationship pretty private, and the couple have never spoken about whether they're parents or plan to be in the future. In March last year, the couple were rumoured to have welcomed children according to the Daily Mail, but the pair never confirmed this news.  

Although Jimmy and Karoline lead a life out of the spotlight, the pair have often been pictured together at events and on red carpets, looking loved-up as ever. They were even spotted attending the wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank in 2018.
