Country music singer-songwriter Darius Rucker has accomplished a lot in his 54 years on this planet. Above all, the multi-talented artist treasures his wife, Beth Leonard, and his kids Carolyn, Daniella Rose, and Jack. Get to know Darius Rucker’s children below!
Carolyn (born April 21, 1995) is the 25-year-old daughter of Darius and his former girlfriend Elizabeth Ann Phillips. In May 2018, she graduated from college! Like her famous father, she also enjoys singing and covering popular songs.
Daniella (born May 16, 2001) is Darius and Beth‘s eldest child together. Yes, she was named after famous football legend Dan Marino! The 19-year-old is currently in college and attending New York University. While at home with her family, Dani released a cover of Jypsi’s “I Don’t Love You Like That.” The song, written by Liz Rose and Stephanie Chapman, was produced by Darius and also features his backing vocals. Listen to her sing here.
Jack (born in 2005) is Darius and Beth’s youngest child and the star’s only son. The 15-year-old is wild about golf and often plays with his father!
Although each of his children show musical ability, Rucker would rather them all find success outside of the entertainment industry.
“If they were to ask me what I wanted them to do singing would be the last thing I would want them to do. Go be an engineer. Go be a doctor. Go get a real job. Get a family and live a great life…” Rucker revealed in a past interview with Life of Dad.
As for what he wants for his three children, it’s simple— have faith and be good people.
“That love of God is so important. My kids are great kids. I always stress to be good people. Be good to others. For me I tell them that it is easier to be nice than to be a jerk. I say it to my kids all the time. That is one of the things that I remember from growing up. My mom said how important it was to be a good person. That is one thing that I truly try to put into their lives. It is just second nature. It is to be nice and help folks,” the South Carolina native sagely explained.
