Jeff Timmons was born in Canton, Ohio in 1973 and later attended Kent State University. While in college, he decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue a singing career and formed the band 98 Degrees with Justin Jeffre, Drew Lachey and Nick Lachey. The band rose to stardom in 1998 with their album 98 Degrees and Rising, which featured hits like “The Hardest Thing” and “Because of You.” After the release of Revelation in 2000, the group decided to take a hiatus in 2002 and Timmons launched his solo career by touring with Jim Brickman and offering two albums of his own in 2004 and 2009.
Timmons was married to Trisha Sperry from 1997 to 2004 and the twosome share daughter Alyssa and son Jeffrey Jr. Following their divorce, Timmons moved on with Amanda Timmons and the couple tied the knot in 2008. Jeff and Amanda — who also has two children from a previous relationship — welcomed daughter Ariahuna together in 2011.
