Jenna Lee is married to Lieutenant Commander Leif Babin. She tied the knot with the dashing former Navy SEAL officer on 3rd July 2011. Her husband is the son of US Congressman, Brian Babin. While working as a Navy officer, Leif received the Silver Star, the Bronze Star, and the Purple Heart. He is the co-author of the New York Times Bestseller book, Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win. He appeared as a guest on Jenna’s show, Happening Now, in late 2015.

Jenna and Leif met at the 2008 Navy SEAL Warrior Fund dinner party that was organized in the Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York. Her first reaction when she saw Leif for the first time was “Wow, he’s totally handsome, but not my type.”

Eight years later, Jenna and Leif are parents to son, Brian Marc, and daughter, Liberty Josephine Babin. She gave birth to her first child on 3rd September 2014. They welcomed a baby girl on 5th April 2016. She had announced the news of her second pregnancy on Happening Now.

At the end of the show, she said, “I’m also thankful for my family at home… my husband and little boy there, Leif and Trace – and come spring time, we’re going to need another pair of American flag sunglasses because yes, we are expecting a new addition to the family.” Jenna and her family live in New York City.
