His parents celebrated their wedding twice

Penn and Domino started dating in 2014 before walking down the aisle three years after in 2017 and celebrated their wedding not once but twice. 

During an interview with Live with Kelly and Ryan, Penn revealed the reason behind their two times weddings. 

He said the first time they got married was in a New York courthouse which was quite intimate in the presence of their close ones. 

Then they had the huge reception, which was the desire of his mother-in-law. They had all their family and friends from all around the world. 

He also revealed that The Shirelles performed, which was a complete surprise for him and Domino since they were unaware of their special performance.

He has an older half-sibling born to his mother from her previous relationship

James has an older brother Cassius Riley born to his mother in her previous relationship. She was in a relationship with musician Morgan O'Kane.

They welcomed Cassius in 2009 but soon split, after which Domino became a single mom. 

During an interview back in 2018, she revealed that she didn't feel serious about her relationship with Penn initially because she was sort of getting used to being a single mom. 

She had good things with her kid, and together they were like a little team.

She said when they were dating, it was not as serious as it is now, and she didn't think initially that marriage was on the card for them. 

She admitted the difference now is she is really living.

James was born after his mother suffered two miscarriages

His mother, Domino, had to suffer two miscarriages in a row before his birth. 

Domino announced her pregnancy via her Instagram account with a baby bump, also revealing that the couple went through two miscarriages in a row before the current pregnancy making them feel "ready to call it." 

She also expressed how she stopped trusting her body and started accepting that she was done. 

Adding to that, she wrote about being pregnant for the first time with her first son Cassius at the age of 25 when she knew nothing and dove in blissfully unaware of birth and its mysteries and that now, with the ten years of experiences, she treasures her birth community and the knowledge she has. 

She also expressed her gratitude to the unborn James, who was already teaching them how to stay in the day in a way they have never had to. 

James was a C-birth after three-day labor at home.

How his father's joyful fatherhood experience made his performance in "You" harder

Penn found the fatherhood experience in real and reel life completely different. He said his joyful fatherhood experience made his performance in "You" hard. 

During an interview with Access, when asked about what it was like portraying Joe's "morbid" parenting after having his own, he explained saying that he was curious to know what his new fatherhood and how that would influence his experience with Joe and acting with him and sometimes it was not helpful because he had a light and joyful experience which still he is but Joe is so petrified.

Joe is just so morbid in his obsessive, sort of like self-preservation, primal instincts that sometimes he almost found it harder, as a result, he said. 

Net Worth

James is just a kid, so he is relishing a lavish lifestyle provided by his celebrity parents. 

His father has a net worth of $8 million which he has amassed from his career as an actor, musician, and producer. 


  1. He was born on 11th August 2020. He is currently two years old.
