Jacob Nicholas Caan is the 24 year-old son of American actor James Caan. He is one of the actor’s five kids born on September 24, 1998, by his fourth wife, actress and designer Linda Stokes.
Jacob is not just a celebrity kid with nothing to show for himself. Instead, as a young adult, he is already making a name for himself as a costume designer. Aside from this, a lot more is going on in his life, and we will tell you all about it below.
Jacob Nicolas Caan was Born 24 Years Ago

He is currently 24 years old and is an American by nationality who comes from a famous Caucasian family, some of whose members include butcher and wholesaler Arthur Caan (grandfather), actress Sophie Caan (grandmother), and filmmaker Josie Caan (niece),
Growing up under the guardianship of his parents, Jacob attended La Salle High School, which is a Roman Catholic preparatory high school mainly for boys situated in Bend Road, Cincinnati. Following the completion of his high school, he enrolled in a university and graduated in due time. However, the actual university he studied at and his course of specialization has not been revealed.
He is the Youngest of James Caan’s Kids and also the Closest to His Father
James Caan and Linda Stokes are both familiar names on TV in and outside America. The couple who bore 2 children together became husband and wife officially on the 7th of October 1995. During the course of this marriage, they had 2 kids between them who are James Arthur Caan and Jacob Nicolas Caan.
However, this marriage was not one that would last forever as James and Sophie soon grew tired of each other. Their marriage was so turbulent that the once-doting couple divorced 3 times, with the first being in 2005, the second on November 20, 2009, and the third/final divorce in 2016. This is 21 years after their marriage and 18 years after the birth of Jacob Caan, who is James Caan’s youngest child.
Of James Caan’s 5 children, Jacob Nicolas Caan is the youngest in the family and, rightfully so, the closest one to his father, alongside his immediate elder brother. Growing up, the duo often accompanied their father to numerous showbiz events, which made him exposed to paparazzi early enough.
Though he seems to have taken a step away from the spotlight, the bond between the older James and his son Jacob in particular, is still there. In 2020, he was spotted pushing his father in a wheelchair when they came to have dinner in a Los Angeles restaurant.
