Marriage And Husband

Is 40 too late to start a family? Well, it wasn’t the case for Jo.

She married Bernie Bourke, a psychiatric nurse, on 19th December 1997. And the couple has a lot in common because Jo was a psychiatric nurse herself before going into the comic scene.

Despite marrying at an older age, Jo has two daughters from her marital relationship with Bernie.

She had her first girl, Maisie Harriet, in March 2001, when she was 43. And, her second daughter Eliaz Mary was born on November, two years later.

Jo said in a 2013 interview that she also has grandchildren. However, the details about her grandkids are not public yet.

Family Background, Bio And Age

Standing at the height of a mere 5 feet 4 inches (1.63 meters), Jo Brand is a short woman who touched great heights in her life.

Born on 23rd July 1957, the 62-year-old actress comes from chaotic family background. She was raised in a home where there was a fight almost every day. Her father had a short temper and scolded her for nearly everything. He even burned all her clothes one day.
