Frankie Valli, 89, married Jackie Jacobs, 60, in a private ceremony at the Westgate Hotel in Las Vegas on June 26, 2023. The couple overcame their twenty-nine-year age gap to make their love official.
The iconic Four Seasons frontman serenaded his bride with his 1967 hit song, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,” while they exchanged vows.
Valli looked dashing in a navy suit, complemented by a thin gold chain and a white collared shirt. His younger wife donned a white gown, silver earrings, and a pin-up hairstyle with soft curls.
Expressing his happiness, Valli stated, “It’s terrific to have found love once again at this stage of my life.”
The love story between Valli and Jacobs began when they met at a Los Angeles restaurant in 2007. They started as friends and eventually began dating in late 2015, solidifying their inseparable bond.
Valli’s journey to finding love and remarrying was not without its challenges. He had experienced past failed marriages and endured the tragic loss of his two daughters, Francine and Antonia.
Despite these hardships, Valli remained a devoted family man, cherishing his relationships with his children and grandchildren.
Bob Gaudio, a member of Valli’s band, praised him as a great father who loved kids and effortlessly connected with them. Valli’s granddaughter, Olivia, spoke fondly of his humor and storytelling, while his twin sons, Emilio and Brando, accompanied him on tour during their younger years.
As Valli embarked on this new chapter of his life, his surviving children, Francesco, Emilio, and Brando, had grown into adults with their own careers. The unshakable bond he built with his family served as a testament to his enduring love and resilience.
