Personal Life

Jake Foushee was born on May 1, 1997, in North Catalonia and has spent the majority of his life in the Tar Heel State. However, he does have plans to eventually move to Los Angeles. He has a younger brother named Luke who has appeared in many of his Vines.

As with most boys, life changed drastically for Foushee when puberty hit. In his case, however, it was a bit more prominent and sudden than usual. When he was 13 years old, his voice deepened overnight. He used to sound like a regular kid and then, he got a cold. When he woke up the next morning, his voice had gone way down. Initially, he thought it was the cold, which eventually went away but the voice did not return to its original pitch. According to his mother, Joanna, they were all confused about the voice, but as it stuck around, they came to accept it. He talked about it during his appearance on ‘The Ellen Show’. His friends realized he had this new voice and they would often send him to girls to say “Hey, baby.” They would even pay him to record their voicemails!
