CALLED IT! Jodie Turner-Smith & Joshua Jackson Are Reportedly Married And Expecting Their First Child

​ ​ ​ ​

We called it! Those rings they've been rocking and that look of a baby bump apparently are exactly what we first reported, if you believe the new reports. Queen & Slim star Jodie Turner-Smith, 33, and 41-year-old "When They See Us" star Joshua Jackson are reportedly married, and also expecting their first child together!


Deets inside.


Well, congrats are in order!  2019 will most def go down as the most epic year so far for our fave Queen, Jodie Turner-Smith!  She copped a ring, and reportedly a baby, to top off her huge year in Hollywood.

People magazine says a source close to the couple confirmed to them the marriage news.  A rep for "Dawson’s Creek" and "The Affair" alum Joshua Jackson, however, could not be reached for comment. A rep for Jodie did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Last month, when the hot couple made their red carpet debut at the Queen & Slim premiere, we said it right here on TheYBF.com that Jodie was officially on Preggers Watch, and the rings the twosome have been rocking screamed wedding rings.  We suspected then that the twosome got married on the low.

The Daily Mail also posted pics of the the super cheery couple a few months ago out in Beverly Hills carrying an envelope after seemingly picking up a marriage certificate.  Joshua's mom, Fiona Jackson, was also with them that day, as well as at other times (pictured below in August).

Today, Us Weekly also reports they have confirmed via a source that Jodie is indeed pregnant with their first child together.

"Baby on board! Jodie Turner-Smith is pregnant and expecting her first child with her husband, Joshua Jackson, Us Weekly exclusively confirms.

Jackson is “so supportive of Jodie and loves to cheer her on,” a source told Us at the time.


The British bombshell posted up a cute boo'd up pic with her new alleged hubby on Instagram:



A few months ago, she went IG official with Joshua with this cutesy post:



They were spotted all over Beverly Hills together holding hands, hitting up Usher's 40th birthday party together and on each other's IG stories with other cutesy posts.  Us Weekly reports:


The pair also professed their “love” for each other in September. “Babe,” the Neon Demon star said in an Instagram Story video, and he replied, “Yes, love?” When his girlfriend told him, “You look amazing, despite having had a fever of 101.8, just last night,” Jackson said, “That is how you can tell you’re in love.”"

Dating rumors between the two began in November 2018 when the couple were spotted holding hands in Los Angeles. A source told Us that they attended Usher’s 40th birthday party together the previous month and “were all over each other” and “gazing into each other’s eyes as they danced together the whole night.”


The "Affair" star previously dated Diane Kruger from 2006 to 2016, and vowed to remain friends afterwards.

Jodie is beautiful AF.  But she hasn't always felt that way.  Because, colorism.  Despite being born in England to Jamaican parents, Jodie was raised in Gaithersburg, Maryland.  She reflected on her high school years in a recent throwback post where she explains just how real her glow up has been (even though she's always been gorge to us):

Proof That The Glow Up Has Been Really Real it’s been soooo long since i’ve seen these pictures, but because the internet is undefeated, i found them! a blast from the past! i’m humbled when i look at this girl. 17 year old me. not just because of how i look on the outside, but because i remember how i felt on the inside. i remember how badly i hated myself and hated the dark skin that made people call me ugly. how i turned my helplessness at being unable to change my outward appearance inward, by constantly cleaving away any and all parts of myself that i was told made me unacceptable to others. how i changed my voice, changed my hair, became captain of this and president of that, used my intelligence to build a wall around me, spent years in the practice of bending and shaping myself into the most acceptable form of Jodie for the people around me until there was nothing of me left but hate for a person i didn’t recognise and fear that i had become someone it was impossible to come back from... AND, MY GOD, IT WAS EXHAUSTING! but i say all that to say this— i am grateful for the girl in these photos and for every part of this journey. because i couldn’t be me, now, if i wasn’t first her, then. when you know what it feels like to hate yourself, finally loving yourself is a freedom that cannot be matched by anyone else’s approval also worth noting— i was voted Most Likely To Succeed! but we all thought it would be in somebody’s office

As for how she landed in Hollywood: She worked at a bank in Philly after graduating from the University of Pittsburgh in 2008. A friend introduced her to Pharrell at a N.E.R.D. concert that year, and he convinced her to move to L.A. to model. She made the cross country trek the next year, and the rest is history.  Fun fact: She was the lead model in Future's "Feds Watching" video.
