Who Is Jacqui Oatley's Husband, Jamie?

Once Oatley tweeted that her husband is the type of person who loves cooking and home improvement show. Similarly, in her other tweets, she quoted jokingly that her husband reckons she is not well-rounded.

Oatley had tweeted: "My husband reckons I’m not a well-rounded individual “because you only watch football, darts, and the news.” I think that makes me incredibly well-rounded!"

The couple lives blissfully in Hinchley Wood, Esher, with her family.

Meet Jacqui Oatley's Children: Phoebe And Max

Jacqui Oatley and Jamie's marriage has resulted in the birth of two lovely children: Phoebe and her darling younger brother, Max, who was born on April 21, 2014, the day before his sister turned three.

Phoebe once earned undeserved fame on social media. Then Jacqui condemned her daughter's football coach in a tweet for telling the seven-year-old to complete the hula hoop drills because the males would only pass to each other. After a while, many tweets that supported the mother's suffering appeared.

Despite being a busy mother, Oatley has always handled her family life and profession well. However, she will be swamped in the coming days.

When Oatley called seven FIFA Women's Global Cup 2019 matches for the Host Broadcast Services (HBS) "world feed" live from Roazhon Park in Rennes, France, in 2019, she restarted her association football primary (play-by-play) commentary career.

In September 2021, Oatley became the primary major (play-by-play) commentator for the UK FA Women's Super League games on Sky Sports. FOX Sports have also appointed her as a commentator for Fifa World Cup.

Surprisingly, Oatley's mother, Sonja Oatley, received an MBE in June 2011 for her contributions to the community in Staffordshire, making her the second family member to win the honor.

Meanwhile, Oatley's dad, Gerald, passed away in 2004 from cancer, which remains a regret that he could not enjoy her success.

The broadcaster has said about her parents: “I was so proud of my mum. She’s originally from South Africa and very hard working.”

“My parents were great; they didn’t say ‘don’t do that, ' just said ‘go for it. So now, as Ms. Oatley juggles family and professional life, help comes from closer to home. I’m here, there, and everywhere with work. She further said: “The support from Jamie with the children is so important.”

In July 2022, the English presenter, after her mother, became a victim of a scam. After her mother was one of the many parents duped into thinking their children were in difficulty and needed money, she issued a warning about a WhatsApp scam.
