Jennifer met her husband in the most cliché Hollywood way of all. Justin Miller, a former model, appeared in Sugarland’s 2006 video “Want To.” At the time, however, the blond beauty was married to her first husband, Todd Van Sickle, so nothing happened between the future spouses.

Jennifer's first union came to an end in 2007. But the singer and actress wasn’t ready to date Justin until two years after her divorce. The couple would go on to marry in 2011 in Tennessee.

Not much else is known about Jennifer and Justin, because according to multiple sources, she prefers to keep her private life, well, private. And we can't blame her at all for that!

As Jennifer confided to The Washington Post ahead of Farmer Wants a Wife’s premiere, when her agents brought her the opportunity to host the Fox reality dating show, she promptly said no.

But upon watching episodes of the Australian version of the series, Jennifer liked what she saw, and found herself wanting to be a part of the farmers finding love.

“To get to be a part of a story happening in real time, in someone else’s story, I think that that’s what we’re all looking for when we watch these shows," she told the news outlet.

"We’re really all looking to feel seen and to see some of ourselves in other people," Jennifer added, perhaps thinking about her own love story with her husband.

Farmer Wants a Wife premieres on Wednesday, March 8, 2023, at 9 p.m. on Fox.
