Sibset of the Week: The Joneses

This has to be one of my favourite celebrity sibsets, almost certainly. I’m not sure why it is that this particular one has always stood out to me, but you can imagine how excited I was when I found out early last year that a third child was to be added to the clan. And I was right to be so, with another handsomely named son welcomed in April 2012.

The parents are both in the music industry: Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Richard Jones.

The former is a favourite artist of my fathers, and perhaps her best known track being Murder on the Dancefloor which reached the #2 spot in the UK Singles chart back when it was released in 2001 (scarily for me, that’s over 10 years ago now and before my youngest sibling was even born). As for Richard Jones, he’s the bassist for British band The Feeling, and for the international readers it’s worth noting he made an appearance in the music mash-up that was the closing ceremony for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Their family of five include three sons:

Sonny (b. 2004)

Kit Valentine (b. 2009)

Ray Holiday (b. 2012)

  1. Love it! That is one fabulous sibset. I really like the simplicity and casualness of all the names, but Kit and Ray have gorgeous extravagant middles to balance it.

    No middle for Sonny?


  2. I love this one, especially the two youngest boys. Love Valentine (obviously) and Holiday as boy middle names. I think I remember reading somewhere that Sonny’s middle is Douglas?
