Jordyn Blum and her husband Dave Grohl, the frontman of Foo Fighters former drummer of Nirvana, Dave Grohl have been married for 12 years. Blum and Grohl tied the knot in August 2003 after a chance meeting a whiskey bar in Los Angeles.
The musician had got his wife “totally drunk” when they first met because he thought he looked such a mess she wouldn’t have spoken to him otherwise.
Dave admits he’s still amazed he convinced Jordyn to marry him, as things could have been totally different and he was not at his best when they were initially introduced, but managed to win her. The Foo fighter frontman, in one of his interviews, said:
In the end, I wound up writing, ‘You’re my future ex-wife’ with my number on a piece of paper and giving it to Jordyn.
Jordyn and her husband then began dating but things did not shape the way it had to and things became too serious he stopped getting in touch with Jordyn.Things eventually changed when Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins suffered a drugs overdose, forcing Dave to think about what he really wanted from his life.
It was bad. Really bad. And it made me put things into perspective, When we got back to LA, I called her up and said, "Let’s go out for a drink." Just to wind me up, she appeared wearing a wedding ring... and we’ve been together ever since.
So, this was how the couple ended up being together but this was not the first marriage of her husband.
Grohl was previously married to photographer Jennifer Youngblood. After being married for 3 years, Youngblood and Grohl headed for a divorce in 1997. Now, Blum and her husband are proud parents of three beautiful angels, the twelve-year-old Violet May, nine-year-old Harper Willow and Ophelia. The couple welcomed their third child, Ophelia, on 1st August 2014.
The Nirvana rock star indeed chose a pretty name for his youngest daughter, the name has its origins rooted in the ancient language, Greek and ‘Ophelos’ means ‘help’. ‘Ophelia’ shares her name with the Shakespearean character from Hamlet.
The big news of Ophelia’s birth came just a few days after the sorrowful demise of Dave father, James Grohl on 6th August 2014 due to a longtime illness. Jordyn usually prefers to keep low media profile, unlike most celebrity wives.
She is not very active on social networking sites like Twitter and Instagram. So, her third pregnancy didn’t garner much media attention. The couple was only spotted on a few occasions with that baby bump, smiling away, flashing their pearly white teeth.
On the 8th August 2014, a post on The Dave Grohl Alley Scholarship Program’s Facebook Page reads: 'Bittersweet news - congratulations David Grohl and Jordyn Blum who have welcomed a new baby girl #3 Ophelia Grohl! The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away!'
Jordyn, a native of Los Angeles, California has worked as a documentarian for her husband’s band, Foo Fighters. The 39-year-old has also featured in Foo Fighters’ 2011-released music video, White Limo. The 5 feet 7 inches tall Blum really looked mind-blowing in that video of her husband’s band.
Most interestingly, when 17-year-old Blum had appeared as a model for the cover of Teens Magazine’s June 1994 issue she was asked about her favorites, and she had answered Alternative, Pearl Jam, and Nirvana as her favorite music. Well, she must have never though future husband would be the drummer of her favorite band, Nirvana.
Blum back then had mentioned her hobbies as Working out, horseback riding and hanging out with friends while she wanted to pursue a career as movie producer and director during her teens. Earlier in June, David broke a leg (literally) in a concert while singing one of his headbanging songs. His band statement posted about this on Twitter.
The tweet read: 'As witnessed by tens of thousands in attendance at Foo Fighters' June 12 show at Ullevi Stadium, Dave Grohl took a nasty spill during the second song of the set.' He was spotted in a wheelchair being pushed around London by his wife and kids. After all, families are families supporting each other in the hardest of times. Ah!! Sweet Family.
Jordyn made an appearance with her rockstar husband at the Emmy red carpet this year. While David opted for an edgy look, with a black t topped off with a casual denim jacket, Jordyn looked elegant in a white lace strapless dress.
She had her hair done in a braided-up do. Her matted-red lips complemented her deep light-blue eyes. The couple complemented each other in an odd way.
While the David looked like the rockstar that he is, Blum donned an 18th-century beauty look. Either way, they looked gorgeous together!!
