Revealing that they had initially met through mutual friends at The Langham hotel in London, Jacqui said she and Guy didn't go on their first date until months later when they were both single. Admitting that the first date was "daunting" after talking "30 to 40 times a day", Jacqui had no cause for concern as she and Guy hit it off instantly.
"I mean, I knew in the pub," Jacqui told ES magazine. "I looked at him and thought, 'You're the father of my kids.' I had an absolute certainty that I've never had about anything before."

Asked whether Guy felt the same way, Jacqui replied: "He thinks I'm more intuitive than him, but he says that from the moment we started texting and emailing, he was saying to all his friends, "I think I've found her'."
Jacqui's intuition was right, as the couple have since gone on to welcome three children together – Rafael, four, Rivka, two, and one-year-old Levi. The couple married at their idyllic Wiltshire home on 30 July, which Jacqui described as the "happiest day of my life".
With stars including David Beckham, Brad Pitt and Jason Statham on the guest list, it was a truly star-studded day, but Jacqui revealed her best friends from her hometown Southend were her bridesmaids.
Jacqui said she always knew Guy was 'the one'
"It was the most magical time ever," Jacqui told ES magazine about their celebrations, adding that she had been very calm before her big day.
"The night before, Rocco came to me and said he needed help writing his speech – he was pacing up and down," Jacqui said. "So I felt like I was calming everyone down."
