Irving Jannings is Kelsey Jannings's daughter and a minor character in BoJack Horseman.


Season 2

Kelsey Jannings brings Irving to the set of Secretariat, for Take Your Daughter to Work Day. Once she's there, Kelsey asks Diane, to take her away from set so that they can get some work done.

While Irving and Diane are out and about, they meet up with Todd who is harboring Becca, a chicken who escaped from a truck on the way to a slaughterhouse.


Irving is a cynical, benighted teenager who harbors a disdain for all adults, including her own mother.

The only exceptions to her contempt are Todd and Diane, whom she refers to as her "cool friends" after the trio break into Gentle Farms and free the imprisoned chickens being held there.


Irving is a teenage girl who wears her ombré brown-blonde hair in a bun at the top of her head and she has blue eyes and freckles across her cheekbones and nose.

She wears a burgundy collared shirt, a cropped teal sweater, an olive green jacket vest with a grey zipper, a plaid yellow, green, and white skirt, and a red book bag, and gold studs in her ears.


Memorable Quotes

  • "Is that a reference from the '90s? You know that was 20 years ago, right?"


  • It is possible that Irving was adopted, since Kelsey is a lesbian and her other parent (Marla, Kelsey's ex-wife) is implied to be as well. On the other hand, it would also make sense that she was conceived through artificial insemination from a sperm donor (though it's unknown which one, Kelsey or her ex-wife, was the egg donor and which was the surrogate).
