The new man in her life
Jenna has definitely been through some rough times in relationships. In fact, so rough that she has not shared a word about the new love of her life until just six days before announcing her pregnancy. She has been with Karl Hudson for a year, according to her post.
When she introduced him to her followers she said, “I kept wanting to share this with you, but it’s hard when there are people out there who have made it their goal to make sure I can’t be happy. I had a fear about how social media can destroy what I love..but this is a huge part of my life, and I think it’s about time I let you in all the way❤️.”
Jenna went on to say that she cannot imagine life without Karl. Because of him she knows what it is like to be with a real man. She says he has an unselfish, loving heart. In referring to her awful relationship with Jordan Kimball she says, “The one who didn’t care what show I was on, what drama was made up about me, or how many broken pieces of my heart he had to glue back together.” She even adds that he is the best pig dad ever. This is in reference to her love of pigs and their pet pig, Pearl.

Well, here is your morning news😜 I kept wanting to share this with you, but it’s hard when there are people out there who have made it their goal to make sure I can’t be happy. I had a fear about how social media can destroy what I love..but this is a huge part of my life, and I think it’s about time I let you in all the way❤️ Soo this is Karl. I met him a year ago, and now I can’t imagine life without him. He has shown me what it’s like to be with a real man. With real morals. And with an unselfish and loving heart, and I’m never going back😅 We have traveled the world together, and up until now he has always been the man behind the camera;) But here you have it..this is the guy inspiring all my big smiles and dreams. The one who didn’t care what show I was on, what drama was made up about me, or how many broken pieces of my heart he had to glue back together. He is the best pig dad in the world. He is smart and funny…with an adorable southern charm. He makes me feel safe, and beautiful, and calm. For once my anxiety has started to fade. He is so special to me, and I feel lucky to be able to love him every day. As always, I wanted to thank everyone who has supported me through the years. Those of you who laughed with me, cried with me, prayed for me, and genuinely cared for me…I appreciate every one of you. And I promise to continue to share more personal aspects of my life, because I want you to be a big part of it😘 To be continued…
Jenna’s BIP experience
Jenna appeared on Season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise. She met and fell for Jordan Kimball. The two got engaged on the season finale. However, they were not engaged long. The couple broke up in September of that same year. Kimball accused Jenna of flirting with another man. She denied it and said the text messages Jordan referred to were fabricated.
US Weekly shared May 2019 that Jenna planned on writing a tell all about her horrible relationship with Jordan. She said, “I know America has heard some of the obnoxious lies about me from Bachelor Nation’s most thirsty contestants and gossip blogs. But now it’s my turn. I have gone to great lengths to prove that all of these accusations were false.”
Congrats to Jenna as she moves on and finds happiness with Karl, Princess Pearl and their newest edition arriving this year.
