Does Ken Griffin have children?

Before divorcing Anne Dias-Griffin in 2014, the couple welcomed three children together.

He and his second wife had reportedly been separated since February 2012, according to the Daily Mail.

During the time of the divorce, Dias-Griffin says in court documents obtained by the Chicago Tribune that her husband showed little interest in their children, ages 6, 4 and 2.

On the contrary, Jodi Furlong, Griffin’s former assistant, told the outlet he’s “over the moon” to be a father.

Their divorce was settled in October 2015, with the couple retaining joint custody of their children.

Aside from his very public second divorce, Griffin tends to keep his children and personal life out of the spotlight.
