Before coming across Bunnie, Jelly was already the father of his two kids. Noah Buddy DeFord, his son from a prior relationship, was born in 2016, and Bailee Ann DeFord, his daughter from a separate relationship, was born in May 2008. However, they have yet to have children together. Jelly claims that Bunnie and his daughter, Bailee, share a special relationship. In 2020, he took his Facebook and expressed about their relationship writing,
It takes a special kind of woman to raise a kid that isn’t her child and still treat the child as if she was. Over the years watching her relationship with Bailee blossom into this beautiful mother-daughter bond that it has become has been nothing short of magical. I have truly been blessed with the best partner I could’ve asked for in life. You are the epitome of a good mom and deserve more credit than anyone because you didn’t have to step up to the plate the way you did. You chose to step up and man you have knocked it out of the park. Thank you Mama Bear – we love you.
Following Jelly Roll's success at the 2023 CMT Music Awards, Bunnie took her Instagram and paid tribute to her husband in an Instagram post with the caption,
You my sweet other half, are just that. A man that was told no every corner he turned only to hit ‘em with that Nashville shuck & come out on top every time. I always tell you you have a horseshoe stuck up your ass, but that isn’t it baby. This is sheer will to spread light, to move mountains, to touch broken souls with your voice, to break generational traumas & set examples for the future. In short, you are the game changer papas. You were sent here to destroy stereotypes & blaze the trail for all the have nots.
Similarly, Jelly's girlfriend-turned-wife, Bunnie, has amassed wealth over the years thanks to her prosperous career in the entertainment sector. Her actual net worth is unknown, however, it is said to be in the range of $1 million and $5 million.
