How Did Kayja Rose Land on the Rogan Family?

Kayja Rose is 26 years old, and she was born in Atlanta in 1996. Her mother, Jessica Ditzel, is Joe Rogan’s wife, and her father is the deceased Kevin Connor, a member of the R&B band H-Town who sadly passed away in 2003 in a car accident. 

When Joe Rogan married Jessica Ditzel in 2009, he decided to adopt Kayja and welcome her to his family. She also has two half-sisters born from Joe and Jessica: Lola Rogan, 14, and Rosy Rogan, 12.
