The singer touched on how he had been on the cusp of developing diabetes for quite some time, taking 2024 as his year to focus on looking and feeling better. Jelly Roll admitted in a Taste of Country interview that he was on a supplement plan to get his hormones right and has started walking, as well as incorporating sauna sessions and cold plunges into his daily routine. 

“I just want to feel better,” he said in the interview. 

The singer also cited that he was only drinking socially at award shows and that his use of marijuana had kept him off of harder substances.

“This is a hot-button topic, but marijuana has kept me sober.”

Currently, Jelly Roll has two kids: his firstborn, Bailee Ann, born in 2008, and son Noah, born in 2016. While Jelly Roll and Bunnie Xo are the sole guardians of Bailee Ann, Jelly Roll and Noah’s mum Melissa co-parent the youngest. 

"With Bailee, I'm the full-time parent; I'm the judge, the jury and the executioner when it comes to decisions with her," Jelly Roll explained in a Taste of Country interview.

"I try not to get in the way of what she [Melissa] is building over there, and I never want to step on her toes, with what she's doing with him, that I want to just respect that boundary.”

Podcaster and wife Bunnie Xo shared the snippet of Jelly Roll breaking the baby news to her Instagram, commenting, “God Willing - Baby DeFord 2026 ”.
