Do Thom Yorke and Dajana Roncione have kids?

Thom Yorke and Dajana Roncione do not have kids of their own; however, Thom has two children — Noah and Agnes — from his previous marriage to Rachel Owen.

Who is Thom Yorke’s first wife?

Thom Yorke’s first wife was Welsh photographer Rachel Owen. The couple were together for a whopping 23 years and were married for about 13 years but announced that they had chosen to go their separate ways in 2015. 

“Rachel and I have separated,” Yorke said in a statement at the time. “After 23 highly creative and happy years, for various reasons we have gone our separate ways. It’s perfectly amicable and has been common knowledge for some time.”

Sadly, Rachel died in 2016 after a battle with cancer. She was only 48 years old.

“I can’t hope to be their mum, but we’re alright. We do quite well. I'm probably a fairly relaxed dad, but they would probably argue differently,” Thom said after Rachel’s death.

“We have a sort of semi-chaotic household...We just hang out. When the kids’ mum died, it was a very difficult period and we went through a lot. It was very hard,” he added. “She suffered a great deal and my ambition is to make sure that we have come out of it all right, and I hope that’s what’s happening."
