When James Taylor isn't producing incredible music as a guitarist and singer-songwriter, he is focused on being the best parent he could be. James is a father to four children, and we get to know more about them below.

James Taylor's Daughter: Sarah "Sally" Taylor

James' daughter Sarah "Sally" Taylor followed in her father's career footsteps by becoming a musician. In 1998, she formed her record label, Blue Elbow, producing and recording three albums.

James' daughter also toured 180 days a year, and when she retired from roadshows, she moved to Boston and started teaching music at The Berklee School of Music. She's currently working exclusively for Consenses, a company she founded and described on its website as "an artistic game of “Telephone” using every medium of art as a language through which to grow a broader understanding of the world."

On July 1, 2021, the Conseses Instagram page shared a photo of Sally's mother, Carly Simon, sitting and smiling outdoors. The post shared how "Mama C" went to Martha's Vineyard on the "perfect girls' night" with her daughter and others.

James Taylor's First Son: Ben Taylor

Apart from Sally, James and Carly also have a son. According to his website, Ben Taylor is also a musician like his father, James, and mother, Carly. However, he only started dabbling in the art in his twenties because having musician parents was "daunting." He once considered becoming a wilderness guide or a martial arts instructor, but the family business kept calling to him.

For four years, Ben took a break from music and worked as a stonemason on Martha's Vineyard. In 2020, he officially returned to music. In December 2022, his mother referenced him in a throwback post honoring the memory of the late John Lennon.

Carly revealed that she was pregnant with Ben in the photos she shared, which featured Lennon, his wife Yoko Ono, and James, taken in 1977. Ben isn't James' only son. He welcomed two more sons and one of them also became a musician.

James Taylor's Twins: Henry and Rufus Taylor

On April 5, 2015, James marked his twin sons Henry and Rufus' 18th birthday by sharing a carousel of their photos on Facebook. "A minute ago you were our babies and now grown men," he reflected, adding:

James welcomed Henry and Rufus with his third wife, Caroline "Kim" Smedvig. Like his father, Henry also got into music, and in 2023, James revealed that his son sang vocals in his summer tour for his group, the All-Star band.

Henry's Instagram account is private but labels him as a musician, and he appears with a microphone and playing a guitar in his profile picture. Meanwhile, Rufus isn't much of a social media user and only has 17 posts, with 1,337 followers on Instagram. Most of his posts show landscapes, activities he's done before, and a quick look into his life.

On June 9, 2020, James uploaded some photos on Facebook, celebrating the boys' graduation from high school. The actor congratulated the twins who graduated amid the COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdown. However, James revealed that they "celebrated nonetheless."
