‘And today we “celebrated” by scrubbing the fridge for our move! (Actually Petee did the scrubbing while I carried on like a pork chop!)’ 

The couple share two daughters, Allegra 14, and Giselle, 12, and first met when Jess was doing work experience at Channel Nine when she was 19.

Jess said Peter, 55, was one of the few people who spoke to her during her work experience stint, and they saw each other again years later at the Logies.

‘As we were talking I was thinking, “Why can’t I meet a nice man like this? Why am I not attracting really good, decent people like this beautiful man?”‘ she told Mamamia in May 2018. 

‘It was a lovely night, you know. We were just chatting, and off I went and off he went.’

Jessica said she was later lamenting about her single status to her friend and colleague at the time, rugby league reporter Tony Peters.

So happy: 'Eighteen years ago today I made the best decision of my life - marrying this darling man!' she captioned the post

She mentioned that she thought Peter seemed ‘really nice’, and Tony revealed that he knew him and offered to give him a call on her behalf.

Peter eventually agreed to take Jessica out, but only if she called him, which led to them having a ‘lovely night’.

‘I thought, “Damn it. I will ring.” Because I’d asked blokes out before – sometimes you have to. So I rang Petey and, I’ll never forget, he said to me, “I like your style,”‘ she recounted.
