STARRING: Jonathan, Anna, Emilia, Edie, Baby "Giulietta/Luca" Squid, Alessia, Andrea, Albi, Sina, Nivea, Nuvola, Bianca, Theo + Minnie.
When Jonathan Joly married Anna Saccone they both decided that instead of Anna dropping her family name they would both take each other's names and join them together. They choose to use SACCONEJOLY rather than JOLYSACCONE simply because it sounded better.
Jonathan and Anna Saccone-Joly have four children, Emilia, Eduardo, Alessia and Andrea. They also have six Maltese dogs, Albi, Sina, and their four puppies: Theo, Bianca, Nivea and Nuvola. Another puppy born was called Minnie but she sadly died three weeks after her birth.
Jonathan was born in Dublin, Ireland and Anna was born in Baltimore, Maryland, United States. Emilia and Eduardo were both born in Cork, Ireland, where the family resided until the Summer of 2014 when they moved to London, where Alessia was born.
Anna and Jonathan announced on April 15, 2016, that they were expecting their third baby. However, in May, Anna suffered a miscarriage before the gender of the baby was ascertained. They affectionately named their lost baby "Squid", and Jonathan has a tattoo of a squid on his left hand, to immortalize Squid's memory. On August 27, 2018, they posted a video explained their children's names and revealed that Squid's name would have been Giulietta or Luca.
On February 4, 2018, they announced that they are expecting their fourth child, a baby boy named Andrea, who was born on August 15, 2018.
