Life and career
Born in New York City, she was a member of several bands, including Let's Go Sailing, and is the creator of the Imaginary Bear puppet show. She has contributed to recordings of a number of Los Angeles musicians, including vocals and cello on Par Avion's EP, Pop Music United. She is the daughter of the jazz double bassist Charlie Haden; the triplet sister of bassist Rachel Haden and violinist Petra Haden, with whom she has performed as The Haden Triplets; and the sister of bassist-singer Josh Haden, leader of the group Spain.
Haden married actor Jack Black on March 14, 2006, in Big Sur, California. She gave birth to their first child, a boy named Samuel Haden Black on June 10, 2006 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Haden met Jack Black when they were students at Crossroads School, a private high school in Santa Monica. Although the two attended the private high school together, they did not begin dating until spring 2005. In January 2008, Black announced that Haden was then expecting their second child. Their second son, named Thomas David, was born on May 23, 2008.
She received her MFA degree from California Institute of the Arts, where she majored in experimental animation.
The Ween song 'Stay Forever' was written for her. Aaron Freeman (Gene Ween) has said this publicly on multiple occasions.
