The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Margaret Josephs has announced the sad death of her former husband Jan Josephs, but did they share any children?

Margaret revealed to the world just last year that she has a biological son named Spencer Josephs, and she also has three step-sons through Jan.

Who is Margaret Josephs?

Margaret is an American fashion designer, entrepreneur and RHONJ star.

The 55-year-old is very successful, as she is the owner, founder and designer of lifestyle brand Macbeth Collection.

She was formerly married to Jan until 2013, before getting married to her current husband Joe Benigno.

The Bravo star has also written books, including Caviar Dreams and Tuna Fish Budget: How to Survive in Business and Life.

Who are her children?

Margaret has three stepchildren – Derek, Taryn, and Bret – Jan’s children from a previous relationship.

Bret actually featured on RHONJ, when he was a photographer at one of the series’ parties – and her ex-husband Jan was also present.

It looks like he may be the only child that she remains in contact with, as Margaret has revealed that the others don’t speak to her.

Margaret’s biological son

Margaret revealed last year during an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show that she and Jan share a biological son.

Spencer was born in 1996, making him 26 this year.

Margaret told Wendy during the interview: “Everybody knows 25, 30 percent of my life. I have a natural-born son people don’t know about. Everybody always thought I never had children but I have my own son.”

Spencer was a student at Tenafly High School in New Jersey before going to Tulane University in New Orleans, according to his LinkedIn page.  He graduated with a degree in Finance and Management.

His profile also says he now lives in New York City, but not much else is known about him as he doesn’t appear to have any social media accounts.

Margaret opens up about her children

Margaret doesn’t usually feature her kids on RHONJ, but she has opened up about their relationships in the past.

In 2017, she got emotional and opened up about them. She said: “My children don’t speak to me because I cheated on their dad with Joe. I raised them since they were young, I was with them since I was 24.”

She tends to keep her family life fairly private, and instead regularly features her husband Joe.
