Personal life[]

He has a daughter, Gemma, with his ex-wife Heather Sands.

In January 2019, he got engaged to Kayla Hughes. They married on February 29, 2020. Attending the wedding were Bachelor alums, Jade Roper, Tanner Tolbert, Chris Soules, Ashley Iaconetti and Jared Haibon.

"I'm so ready to marry her. My relationship with Kayla is so real and normal. I'm not nervous. I'm just excited", J.J., told PEOPLE, days before the nuptials.

The couple exchanged vows at the historic Ironworks event venue in downtown Denver, Colorado, where they both live. The bride wore a custom gown by Mindi Linscombe, while Lane wore a Giorgio Fiorelli suit. Tolbert served as a groomsman and Lane’s 8-year-old daughter Gemma, who is his child from a previous marriage, served as a junior bridesmaid.

As J.J. and Kayla embark upon their lives as husband and wife, the groom joked about one benefit about a Leap Year wedding. "Our anniversary will only officially happen every four years", he said with a laugh. "I'll never forget it!"

On Christmas Day 2021, J.J. and Kayla announced that they are expecting their first child together in July 2022. Their daughter, Nelle Eden, was born on July 21, 2022 (2022-07-21) (age 2).
