After dating for a while, Jill Hennessy married her now-spouse, Paolo Mastropietro. 

Jill's husband is an Italian man who shares the same love for motorbikes as Jill does, Yes, Jill is quite fond of riding motorbikes, and this common ground seems to have solidified much of their love life

The two then tied the knot on October 1, 2000, during an intimate and low-key wedding ceremony when she was filming the movie 'Exit Wounds.' 

The passion for cooking is another common ground that Jill and her husband share and are passionate about.

Hennessy has always been fond of cooking, and on the other hand, her loving husband is a former bartender. Therefore, coming together of these two lovebirds through marriage made the most sense.

They eventually again tied the knot in January 2001 in New York City. Two years later, another happiness followed their life when their son, now 18 years old, was born in September 2003. 

Jill and her husband named their first son Marco. But that is not all to their merry life. Four years after their first child was born, baby number two followed Gianni. 

Their second child was born in November of 2007 and is supposedly 14 years as of 2022. 

Back in 2009, talking about balancing her family life and professional life, she shared, 

It’s a balancing act. It’s figuring out — my husband is much better at it than I am — how to delegate. We have my mother-in-law living next door to us, which helps immensely...... to be honest. I’ve got an assistant working with me on the album stuff, but she helps out with the kids when she needs to.

Despite all the assists, it surely wasn't easy for her to raise two children while focusing on her music and acting careers. However, she shared that she was really enjoying the "whole day-to-day of having two kids."

Further touching on her daily life, she shared, “I end up eating children’s leftovers. That’s my diet. Peanut butter and jelly crusts, somebody’s left over cereal.”

As her children are teenagers now, things are much lighter, but as they say, a parent's duty never really stops. 

Being active in the industry since the late 80s, she never put a hold on her professional endeavors despite having a busy personal life, which is probably why she now has a fortune, ranking her net worth to the multi-million dollar.
