Jessica’s Sister: Olivia Namath
Olivia Namath was born on December 11, 1990, and she is 32 years old.
Olivia keeps her life low-key these days, but she was once seen in the comedy movie The Wedding Ringer.
Olivia and her now-husband, Edwin Baker, had their first child, a boy, when she was 16 years old.
The pair got married in 2014. Unfortunately, the couple has been in the news for all the wrong reasons.
An officer in Palm Springs pulled over Olivia while she was speeding in a silver Mercedes at around midnight. Olivia was with two men when the officer pulled her over. One of them was her husband, Edwin.
The officer approached Olivia’s car and checked her driver’s license, and while doing so, he noticed a funny smell and suspected it was marijuana.
The police searched Olivia’s car and found a bag of “leafy greens” on the floorboard, which later tested positive for marijuana.
In a further thorough search, the officer found approximately half a pound of additional marijuana distributed in baggies and an opened bottle of rum.
She denied knowing anything about the marijuana, and she was later charged with two counts of marijuana possession, including one count of possession with intent to sell, as well as possession of alcohol as a minor.
Olivia was released after posting a $3,000 bond.

Jessica Sought To Null Her Marriage
Just after two years of marriage in 2017, Jessica sought to legally declare her marriage null and void, but her case was rejected.
While she was 38 weeks pregnant, Jessica found a bag of cocaine in her home. That is when she learned about her husband’s struggle with substance abuse.
Later on, Jessica also found out that Brian struggled with alcoholism and anger management issues.
Official court documents state that Jessica and Brian separated in 2016, just weeks before welcoming the couple’s first child, a baby boy.
Jessica and Brian’s divorce battle went on for quite a while as both accused each other of various deeds.
Jessica accused Brian of substance abuse, alcoholism, rage management issues, being an absent father, and an overall safety concern.
Brian accused Jessica of alienating the couple’s son from him by trying to squeeze money as child support when Jessica was getting enough financial support from her father, Joe.
Brian further demanded Joe Namath present his financial records to support his statement that Jessica was not in need of child support.
The divorce was finalized in 2019.

Jessica is the doting mom of two kids. She welcomed her first child, Jemma, in 2010. She is 13 years old.
Since Brian and Jessica began living together in 2008 and Jemma was born a few years later, it’s possible that Brian is her father.
However, since Brian was only fighting for the custody a son, it confirms that Brian is not the biological father of Jemma.
