Jessica went on to say she’s ‘very grateful’ for her fiancé Themeli.

‘He’s been so completely patient but he also loves seeing the joy and gets a kick out of me doing what I love to do.’

‘We live in different worlds. I mean, he’s in construction, I’m in the music business industry. So it’s very, very different worlds, but he absolutely loves it.’

‘He loves his music, and I’m just really grateful to have someone like that in my life who understands what I do,’ she said.

Jessica confirmed her engagement to Themeli, whom she has been dating for more than a decade, in October last year.

‘The love of my life proposed to me in his family’s home town of Kalymnos, Greece, on the beach at sunset,’ she wrote on Instagram at the time.

‘We are so happy. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with my best friend. Thank you for all the love. BIG LOVE JM & Themeli.’

Upon her return to Australia, Jessica was asked about her engagement by paparazzi at Sydney Airport and confessed it was unexpected.

‘It is very exciting. It was a big surprise in fact, it was pretty crazy!’ she said.

Themeli, a soccer player from the Northern Territory, reportedly sought approval from his family in Greece before asking Jessica to marry him.

They first met on a night out more than a decade ago, and spent seven years in a long-distance relationship before he relocated to Sydney in 2016.
