Hank Jefferies is the first son of Australian comedian Jim Jefferies, who has inherited the funnyman’s penchant for comedy. He became a first-time big brother after his dad’s wife gave birth to his second son, little Charlie.
Hank Jefferies drew his first breath on November 7, 2012, born to prosperous parents in the entertainment industry, Jim Jefferies and Kate Luyben, who later ended their relationship. Although Hank had celebrities as parents, they protected him from the Hollywood spotlight.
Since birth, the youngster has never made a public appearance, not even on his parents’ socials. However, his dad has shared some of his hilarious shenanigans over the years during his comedy sets and interviews.

Hank Jefferies Goes to a Fancy School with Other Celebrity Kids
Hank’s dad revealed he attended a “very, very fancy” kindergarten in Los Angeles alongside other celebrities’ children during his special, “Jim Jefferies: Volum 1,” in March 2020. The school once called Kate and Jim to inform them Hank couldn’t read like his peers, to which Jim responded:
“At forty grand a year, that sounds like a ‘you’ problem, not a [expletive] me problem.”
When the pandemic began, Hank switched to home school, and after a year, his dad was convinced he’d gotten “dumber.” During a May 2021 interview, Jim explained that Hank had forgotten everything he’d learned the year before.

The Australian native then added that since Hank still attended online classes with other celebrities’ kids, he would get a full day’s glimpse into the lives of those children and their parents, some of whom allegedly swore at their offspring.
Hank Jefferies Never Adopted His Dad’s Australian Accent
During his 2016 appearance on “Conan on TBS,” the comedian spoke a little more about Hank’s life, revealing that he was growing up in America with his mother. When the host inquired if Hank had his dad’s Australian accent, he comically replied:
“He has an American accent, he sounds like an idiot. Just a small child going, ‘Daddy, I was wondering if I could-‘ shut up, you idiot.”

Jim later clarified that his son was a “very nice lad” who had recently dropped his first “F-bomb” — and the funnyman couldn’t be more proud. Hank was coming home from school when he saw a billboard for one of his dad’s then-upcoming specials.
The poster depicted the comic flying atop an eagle with blazing machine guns while carrying the Statue of Liberty. When Hank arrived home, he asked his dad, known for often swearing during his shows, about his flight on the bird. Then when Jim confirmed it, the then-three-year-old replied with the f-word.

Hank Jefferies Lives in Harmony in a Blended Family Household
Since Hank’s parents separated, they both found new love with new people; however, what’s more, is that they live only a few houses away from each other. Hank’s mother is an actress known for co-starring with Steve Carrell and Catherine Keener in “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” among other films.
As Hank’s father explained on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” she’s been romantically involved with a man named George, who used to be a soccer player, and to whom Jim delegated the responsibility of teaching Hank how to play sports.
Another delegation that went to his then-girlfriend, now wife, is the discipline for Hank. Jim explained that although Hank never fell short of cuddles and kisses from Kate, she struggled with giving the 10-year-old tough love. But his partner was “like Mary Poppins.”

The couples also go on vacations together and are all on good terms. When Kate and Jim look at the blended family dynamic they’ve created, they sit back, enjoying margaritas while watching their partners do a “better job” than they “could ever do” with Hank.
Hank Jefferies Has an Adorable Little Brother Now
Hank’s younger brother, Charlie, was born in 2021 to Jim and his wife, Tasie Lawrence. However, like Hank, Charlie’s parents protect him from the spotlight. Although they share some of his pictures online, they’ve ensured to hide his face.
