Being a calm personality is always a plus point especially in the entertainment world as people don’t come home to watch or hear a grumpy voice on their TV screens or radio channels.
Jay Bilas is an American college basketball analyst for ESPN, and there is no doubt that he looks cool while doing his work but have you ever wondered what he is like off the radar? If you haven't then let’s find out.
Married Life With Wife And Children
Jay Bilas got married to Wendy Bilas in 1995. However, the exact date and venue of the wedding are not shared by the couple.
To talk about his wife Wendy, she is an artist and founder of Wendy Bilas Fine Arts. She comes from what she explains, an ‘artsy family’ where her dad was a photographer, her aunt an oil painter and her sister an actress and pianist.

On 20th March 2019, Jay shared an adorable throwback picture of him with his wife. The post melted everyone’s heart as the picture was taken 36 years back on their first date.
Even after being together for decades, the pair’s relationship is in the right place. They are the ultimate power couple.
The couples together have two children, a daughter, Tori, who as her mother explains is an emerging artist and a son Anthony who plays basketball.
On 9th March 2019, Jay hilariously interviewed his son while in court. Their equation amused people and watched the video posted by College GameDay. Thus, the adorable video reached over a million views.
Both of the ESPN veteran's children do well for themselves; his daughter owns an art website where she shares her creative endeavors to the world.

As Jay is quite famous when it comes to analyzing matches, his son has to face all the questions about how to swag his dad packs while at home and fans are keen to know if he has that much swag around the house as much as he has over the internet. In an interview with Washington Times this March, Jay’s son Anthony said,
“He went from being a goofy dad to all of a sudden, people are asking me how much swag he has and stuff like that. It’s weird. I don’t know. He has a lot more swag on the Internet than he does around me.”
He also said,
“I mean, I used to not think my dad was a big deal, but I kind of have to accept it. He’s kind of famous.”
The husband and wife currently reside in Charlotte, North Carolina with daughter Tori and son Anthony. There have been no rumors about the couple to likely go through the process of divorce as they seem to live a happily married life with their children.
