There’s more to MJ than just being the Kardashian grandma.

Kris Jenner wouldn’t be the “momager” she is today without her own mum, Mary Jo ‘MJ’ Shannon.

The original Kardashian matriarch appears on Keeping Up With the Kardashians (and now The Kardashians) from time to time — including once when she convinced her daughter to join her in taking weed gummies — and is often photographed with her grandchildren.

But there’s more to MJ than just being the grandma of famous reality TV stars.

Watch: Kim and Kourtney on The Kardashians. Post continues below.

Like Kim, she’s been married three times. 

Mary Jo ‘MJ’ Shannon was born on July 26th, 1934, in Arkansas. 

She got married at 18 to her high school sweetheart, despite their marriage only lasting two months.

“Right out of high school, I was given an engagement ring [by] a guy I had been going with for four years. And then I just thought, ‘You know what? This isn’t really that much fun,’ so I got out of it,” MJ said on KUWTK.

While Kim once told her: “We have a lot in common. We both got married for two months once.”
