Andruw and Nicole got married in 2002, and after 10 years, they split up. Christmas morning 2012, at 1:30 AM, the couple got into a huge fight, when drunk Andruw dragged her down some stairs, grabbing her ankle. It escalated to Suburban Court where Nicole filed a divorce complaint. The couple got separated later in January 2013.

The outfielder grew up with his younger sister, Madison Jones. Despite her father's and brother's fame, there's not much information about Madison.
