The 50-year-old sparked speculation over the weekend that she had secretly tied the knot, after a year of dating the carpenter.
Sharing a picture of them looking very loved up, Jessie captioned it “my hubby” and her famous pals rushed to tell her how happy they were for her.

However, her rep insisted they hadn’t married with a source adding: “It’s just a term of endearment.”
