Popular American singer, Jon Bon Jovi has a son who looks just like him and seems to think he is his dad’s favorite. 


Remember Jon Bon Jovi? He is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, philanthropist, and actor, quite a handful really, and he is best known as the founder of the popular rock band Bon Jovi, which was formed in 1983.


Way back on April 29, 1989, Bon Jovi secretly married his high school sweetheart, Dorothea Hurley at the Graceland Wedding Chapel; the beautiful couple has four children: a daughter, Stephanie Rose, and three sons, Jesse James Louis, Jacob Hurley and Romeo Jon.

It’s no secret that Bon Jovi made a valiant effort to separate his life as a famous musician and band player from his family life and he seems to have succeeded as the eldest of his children has a life that thrives away from the watchful eyes of the paparazzi. 

Jon Bon Jovi’s eldest son, Jesse Bongiovi, is the proud owner of Hampton Water winery, proving himself to be an exceptional entrepreneur. 


According to Page Six, Jesse believes he won the right to be referred to as the favorite child in the family loved by both mom and dad, after surprising his mom, Dorothea, during the festive season last year.

The successful entrepreneur told Page Six that when he was a little boy, his mom used to read him a book titled “The Giving Tree," and that he made a silkscreen of a little boy aging and “standing in front of the tree.”

He stated proudly:

“And I took some quotes from the book underneath it. I gave it to my mom for Christmas, and she literally cried, and I was like, ‘I am the greatest son of all time.’”


According to Page Six, the 24-year-old entrepreneur also boasted that he thought that heartwarming gift was going to be hard to beat this year.

Looking at Jesse it’s not hard to realize why he feels he’s the favorite son as he is the spitting image of his father, and according to sources that’s not the only thing they have in common.


He is reportedly just as humble as his father is and also seeks his father’s advice on the smallest even trivial matters and “takes his word for things.”

Like his larger than life father, Jesse is a humble, laid back, pretty much regular guy, and has been seen rocking a Levi’s and a T-shirt on any regular day.


Jesse attributes his considerable achievements to his father, admitting that it was due to his father’s guidance that he was able to implement his business plan. He stated:

“He told me to take my time, to be patient and launch Hampton Water properly because once something is out in public, there’s no taking it back. I apply that to all aspects of my life now."

Do you think Jesse is his parent’s favorite?
