His mom is a Filipino-American artist and singer, who is more famous by her stage name, Nura Luca. Some of her popular work includes You Hold Me and She Loves to Truck.

He belongs to the mixed ethnic background

He has Filipino and Caucasian heritage from both of his parent’s sides. Interestingly, Jo Koy’s father is Caucasian while his mom is Filipino, and similar is the case for Joseph Jr.’s mother.

Herbert Jr. lives in California with his dad and was brought up in the same state. As his parents had been divorced, they co-parented him as per the custody arrangement.

Detail on Joseph Herbert Jr’s parents’ relationship

They started dating somewhere around the early 2000s. Jo and Angie enjoyed marital bliss for a few years before they eventually decided to separate for good. The former flames reportedly separated amicably. Besides, not much is known about the initial phase of their relationship.

The sole reason behind not knowing is that Koy doesn’t like to talk about his personal life. He has made his stance on privacy clear in many interviews. Koy just doesn’t like the media or even his fans prowling on his life.

On the other hand, Herbert Jr’s mother Angie King, like his father, hasn’t disclosed anything about her relationship with Jo either.

Joseph Herbert Jr’s mother and father, despite separation, are still close friends

If there’s any couple who is a true example of ex-couple goals, then Jo and Angie are it. Not only did they stay cordial with each other over the years for the sake of their son, they still very much respect each other.

In many cases, exes tend to have this animosity amongst one another but not this one. The most exemplary part of Jo and King’s relationship is that they still hang out like they are a couple. Heck, they even spent the whole 2020 quarantine together at Jo’s house.

When the news of them spending time together with their son in the same home came out people thought they got back together. But on the contrary, the duo decided to live under the same roof just because they don’t want their son to travel from Jo’s house to King’s house and so on and so forth in the middle of a raging pandemic.

In 2020, when Koy appeared in a segment of Windy City Live, he revealed that he and his wife are staying at home together. Moreover, his ex-wife also made an appearance in the show. Take a look!

Above all, Jo Koy’s kid Joseph Jr. is surely one lucky guy. His parents might not be tied to the marriage bond, but he never felt the need for them to be.

Joseph’s Jr. Education

The Herbert family is a devout Catholic. Likewise, Joseph went to a catholic junior school. He attended the St Mel School in Woodlands, California. He finished his sophomore in 2017.

After enrolling in junior high, both his father and mother expressed their happiness on social media. Koy shared a comedy skit-like video where he is seen crying as his son leaves for college.

Well, it certainly is something to see your child growing up. One day you’re dropping them off at the kindergarten and the next thing you know, they are graduating college.

He often appears in his father’s live shows

Unlike other star kids who rarely ever make public appearances with their famous parents, Joseph usually comes out with his dad on the shows.

In addition, Koy’s son is usually the center of his jokes. One of his comedy specials is all about life as a single father with a teenage son. In the special, we get to see the fatherly side of Koy and other intimate details of their relationship.
