Unfortunately, there are few details about Joe's marital life or his wife and son, as the footballer likes to keep those details private. The other big reason behind the lack of information is Joe's zero social media presence. The Welsh footballer is disconnected from the social world and isn't available on social media platforms.

Nonetheless, the one thing known is that Joe's wife, Lacey, is involved in animal welfare. Due to his wife's influence, Joe has been adopting hens to save them after they can no longer lay eggs.
