The couple, who began dating in 2017 and tied the knot in June 2022, is a perfect example of balancing love, work, and family. Jena revealed in an exclusive interview that balancing parenthood and demanding careers with her partner, Brooks, required a lot of effort from both ends. 

As per the popular personality herself, dedicating alone time, despite the difficulty of leaving their baby, is the key to maintaining their strong romance. They have taken one trip without a crew. She further described how difficult it was to part with him, but their focus had to be on their relationship. She said:

I think the biggest misconception is that I don’t work. And that couldn’t be further from the truth. It’s funny, I have some people telling me, ‘You need to just subdue yourself…’ And then I have other people going, ‘She doesn’t work, she just wants to spend his money.’ And I’m like, ‘Y’all have no idea.’ I’ve been working hard. 

Continuing further, she added:

I’ve supported myself as an actress in LA for all of my 20s. I’ve probably shot over 200 TV commercials since moving to Florida. I work as an influencer on Instagram. I know people might not consider that to be a job, ‘cause I don’t sit behind a desk all day. But’s a job. I make great money.

Jena believes that she and Brooks are the leaders of their family, and it is crucial that both are happy and have a healthy relationship so Crew can witness that and be raised by two loving parents.

Jena clarified that Brooks has to travel frequently for golf tournaments. While she does not enjoy him being away so much, she and Crew have a nice routine when he is gone. She joked that sometimes when Brooks comes home, she is almost annoyed because they have to alter things.
