Jean and Jonatan share one son named Junior. When he was born, Jean took time off "to concentrate on being a mum".

Posting an adorable snap of her and Junior giggling together while at a wedding on Sunday, the presenter wrote the caption: "Lovely pic from Scott and Pauline’s wedding. Beautiful day with my wee bestie, great company and always making me laugh. #Junior."

Back in 2018, the couple renewed their marriage vows. Jean told the Glasgow Times at the time: "I can’t believe it. We were just a pair of kids running around Glasgow and here we are 20 years later."

The pair met while Jean was still at school with a part-time job at a golf club in Langbank. Chatting about meeting her husband for the first time, the 40-year-old said: "He used to come in and play a lot of golf. We met there... I had no interest in settling down with anyone. I was getting ready to finish school and go off travelling. I was just starting my life and not looking for a boyfriend at all."
