Jimmie Allen confirmed he has six children and revealed he welcomed twins amid his divorce from his estranged wife, Alexis.

Allen, 38, shared a series of Instagram Stories on Tuesday spotlighting his six children. He first shared photos of his older three children — son Aadyn, 9, from a previous relationship, and daughters Naomi, 4, and Zara, 2, with Alexis — and then first photos of his boy/girl twins Aria and Amari, 9 months, whom he welcomed with another woman last summer. He concluded the Stories with a photo of his newest son, Cohen, 5 months, whom he shares with his estranged wife, 28.

The former couple welcomed Cohen five months after they announced their separation and filed for divorce in April 2023.

Allen and Alexis married in June 2020. In April 2023, they announced their separation. At the time, they also announced they were expecting their third child together.

According to documents obtained by PEOPLE, the “Down Home” singer filed for divorce on April 28, 2023, with the news breaking the same day Allen was sued by his former manager for assault and sexual abuse — claims he has denied and recently settled. Alexis followed suit with her own divorce filing two hours later. Both cited irreconcilable differences.

The next month, Allen issued Alexis a public apology, writing on social media that he was sorry "for humiliating her with my affair. I'm embarrassed that my choices have brought shame on her. That's something that she did not deserve at all."

He then welcomed his twins with another woman during the summer of 2023.

Allen and Alexis welcomed their third child together, son Cohen, in September; and then in October, Allen’s representatives told PEOPLE they had reconciled. 

"[The divorce] was never fully seen through legally,” said Allen’s representative at the time. "They decided to work on things together and are still together."

In the months since, however, it appears the two have split, with neither wearing their wedding bands any longer.
