Joe Rogan is a name that is almost synonymous with comedy, podcasting, and UFC commentary. While he keeps his private life separate from his professional persona, one member of his family is starting to make a name for herself in the music industry. His stepdaughter, Kayja Rose, is pursuing a career in music, following in the footsteps of her biological father, Keven “Dino” Conner, who was a member of the R&B group H-Town.
Adopted by Joe Rogan
Kayja Rose, whose legal name is Kayja Nichole Conner, was born in 1996, but tragically lost her biological father in a car accident in 2003. When her mother, Jessica Ditzel, started dating Joe Rogan in 2001, she moved into the Rogan household. Rogan later adopted her officially and has referred to her as his daughter ever since. This decision may have been influenced by Rogan’s own childhood, where he experienced abuse from his biological father. His mother later married a man who provided a more stable environment, which helped shape Rogan’s perspective on masculinity.
Kayja Rose is making her way in the music industry, starting with the release of her EP, Tipsy, in 2017. Her music has a modern R&B vibe, but with each single release, she experiments with different production styles. Her latest single, One-sided, has been described as “eccentric” modern R&B, while Breathless Over You is an homage to 80s synth-pop. She has been consistent in updating her social media, giving fans previews of her upcoming work. Kayja’s determination to make her mark in the music industry is reminiscent of her father, Keven “Dino” Conner, who had a successful career in H-Town.
Joe Rogan’s Private Life
Joe Rogan has been private about his family life, rarely talking about his children in detail during his long-form conversations on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. However, his stepdaughter’s rising career may lead to him opening up about his family in the future. Rogan married Jessica Ditzel in 2009, and they have two daughters together, Rosy and Lola, born in 2008 and 2010, respectively. They live in Austin, Texas, where Rogan has made his home.
