The well-connected husband

Jessica is married to Ben Mulroney, a Canadian TV host and son of the former PM Brian Mulroney.

He's best known for hosting Canadian Idol and entertainment news programme etalk - where he covers showbiz awards shows like the Oscars and Golden Globes.

Ben and Jessica tied the knot on December 28, 2007, after just two years of dating.

She shares loved-up couple snaps of them heading on date nights and relaxing at home with their three children; Isabel (aka Ivy), six, and nine-year-old twin John and Brian.

Swanky Toronto pad

Jessica lives with her husband and kids in a leafy Toronto neighbourhood, and has given fans a sneak peek inside her pristine pad.

The spacious home includes two large living rooms, a private pool, and a large walk-in wardrobe complete with floor-to-ceiling shoe storage.

Perfect for entertaining guests is her huge eight-person dining room table, and there is also a gated garden for the kids to play in.

The influencer kids

Jessica’s incredibly cute three kids make regular appearances on her social media page.

In one snap, she’s seen lying on the floor in a red cut-away dress and black stiletto heels while reading to her boys.

And, in another, she jokes around with daughter Ivy, carefully holding her in the air.

Ivy was chosen to be a bridesmaid at Meghan's Royal Wedding in May 2018, while Brian and John Mulroney were page boys.

High-profile fashion job

Jessica is a bridal expert and PR manager. She styles Canada's First Lady Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau, wife of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and carefully selected Meghan's engagement photo call outfit.

She's also a bridal consultant at the Canadian branch of Kleinfeld's, the New York based wedding shop made famous by Say Yes To The Dress.

Jessica helped Meghan choose her TV wedding dress for Suits - and was reportedly flown over to Kensington Palace to join the bride-to-be in fittings for a bespoke wedding gown.

A friend told The Mail On Sunday: “Meghan adores Jessica, not just as a friend but also as someone whose taste and style are impeccable.

“Meghan looks up to Jessica and has, to a certain degree, modelled herself on her.”

A-list pals

They're said to have bonded over a shared love of yoga, fashion and travel.

She was one of the friends chosen to be part of Meghan's baby shower, which included guests such as Serena Williams, Amal Clooney, and Abigail Spencer.
