Jessica, who has three children with her second husband Eric Johnson, also spared warm words for her younger sister Ashlee, whom she called ‘my role model.’
Ashlee and Pete married in 2008 only to split up in 2011, whereupon they released a statement insisting: ‘We remain friends and deeply committed and loving parents to our son Bronx, whose happiness and well-being remains our number one priority.’
For the past eight years she has been married to Diana Ross’ son Evan, with whom she shares her two younger children Jagger, seven, and Ziggy, two.

Meanwhile Pete has been involved with the model Meagan Camper since 2011 and has two children with her – Saint, eight, and Marvel, four.
A few years ago Ashlee lifted the curtain on her co-parenting equation with Pete, telling Us Weekly she ‘lucked out’ with how ‘wonderful’ he and Meagan are.
Pete has also publicly called Ashlee a ‘great mom,’ sharing one co-parenting tip to Us Weekly: ‘I think it’s important to listen and to give people balance.’
