Jack Matfin Bell’s Parents Met at a Sundance Festival
His parents are two Hollywood celebrities, Evan Rachel Woods and Jamie Matfin Bell. At the time of his birth, his parents were happily married, and they both took an active part in raising him. Evan and her one-time husband Jamie first met in 2005 at that year’s Sundance Festival. The cute couple realized that there was chemistry between them, and not long afterward, they officially started dating.
As a symbol of their love, the couple got matching tattoos of their initials. Sadly, the tattoos were not enough to keep their love moving, and a year after they started dating, they chose to break things off and go their separate ways.
About 5 years after their breakup, the two stars realized that they were still very much into each other and got back together in 2011. In January 2012, the lovebirds got engaged and eventually tied the knot in October of that same year. Their wedding ceremony was a very quiet one attended by close friends and family.
A year after their wedding, the couple welcomed their first and only child together in July 2013. Sadly, unlike in most cases when the bond between parents is strengthened by the birth of their young ones, Evan and Jamie only grew wider after their son came along. And a year after that, they ended their marriage through a peaceful divorce.

However, the relationship came to an end, and she got into another relationship with a Basketcase bandmate, Zack Villa. The duo even went as far as getting engaged. However, their relationship came to an end before they could even make it to the altar.
