Jimmy Barnes Discovers His Two Biological Daughters


Jimmy Barnes


The rocker only found out earlier this year that he fathers two grown-up women who reside in Adelaide, Australia.

Scottish rocker Jimmy Barnes has spoken of his shock at discovering he is the father of two grown-up daughters. The musician is dad to four children with his wife, Jane, as well as a son from a previous relationship, but recently found out he is also father to two daughters with two different women and only met the girls this year.

Barnes went through the "correct procedure" to prove the women - Amanda Bennett, 36, and Megan Torzyn, 37, both from Adelaide, Australia - are definitely his biological children and admits he is delighted to have unexpectedly expanded his family. The "Cold Chisel" singer, who moved to Australia as a child, says, "My kids are all so great that when I found out there were a couple more, I felt they would be good people - and they're lovely girls."

"My only regret is not knowing them when they were younger, but life is what it is and all things happen for a reason. At the time it was probably better for them that they didn't know me, because I was pretty wild."

Barnes also discovered his new-found daughter Bennett went to the same school as his grown-up son David Campbell and the pair knew each other during their formative years without ever realizing they were related. Bennett says, "The funny thing is that everyone knew David was Jimmy's son, and we used to pay him out (ridicule him) for it. I remember telling him: 'Yeah right, everyone's a friend or a cousin or a son of Barnesy around here'. And then I learned that I was his daughter!"
