Tom DeLonge, the former co-lead singer and co-founding member of the hit band Blink-182 is back in the spotlight with a show about aliens.

He's producing a new, limited, six-part, one hour series on the History Channel titled "Unidentified: Inside America's UFO Investigation." The show will feature interviews with former military official and Special Agent-in-Charge of the Pentagon’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) Luis Elizondo.

This is the second show about aliens that Tom has recently announced. In December 2018, he announced "Strange Times," a fictional series for TBS based on Tom's graphic novel of the same name. 

With Tom being back in the spotlight, people are wondering more about him and his family.

1. They have filed for divorce.

The couple separated at the end of 2017, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for their separation. In the divorce, he is asking for joint custody of their children.

Tom and Jennifer have been married close to 20 years and he is leaving it up to the courts to decide about spousal support. There is no indication that they could resolve their problems or stay together.

2. She's multi-talented.

Jennifer DeLonge — formerly known as Jennifer Jenkins — attended San Diego State University where she received her bachelor's degree in fine arts. She ran all kinds of businesses, such as her own interior design company, a high-end letterpress store called Papier Moderne and remodeled homes under her company Jennifer Jay, Inc.

In 2004, she also started her own namesake company with her own line of high-end children's furniture, which she created after not being able to find children's furniture for her own home that didn't have cartoon characters, denim, toile or ruffles.

She sells that furniture online and in stores such as Barney's New York, Bellini and FAO Schwarz.

7. She's the inspiration behind some of his songs.

Sweetly enough, Jennifer is the inspiration behind a few of Blink-182's hit songs such as "All the Same Things," and "First Date," which was inspired by their first date at SeaWorld San Diego.

"I was about 21 at the time and it was an excuse for me to take her somewhere because I wanted to hang out with her," he later said.

He also wrote the song "There Is" for his wife as a part of his side-project, Box Car Racer.
