Jimmy Carter’s Kids Meant the World to Him and Late Wife Rosalynn: See Their Family Photos 

From 1977 to 1981 Jimmy Carter’s family was thrust into the spotlight as he served as president. He and his wife, Rosalynn Carter, raised their youngest child, daughter Amy Carter, in the White House as their three eldest children started families of their own. After 77 years of marriage, The Carter Center announced the former first lady’s death on November 19, 2023, at age 96.

Jimmy and Rosalynn wed in 1946 after growing up together in Plains, Georgia. Prior to becoming a politician, the Nobel Peace Prize recipient served in the U.S. Navy. He and his wife welcomed three sons during his time in the service: John “Jack” Carter, James “Chip” Carter and Donnel “Jeff” Carter. Amy arrived in 1967, 14 years after her father left active duty.
