The singer moves on with another marriage and a child and seems happy after lack of time and growing apart ends her earlier marriage to Todd Van Sickle. Perhaps taking a longer break has helped strengthen her second marriage. Or Justin is simply the love of her life.
Jennifer and Todd
Country music singer Jennifer Odessa Nettles seems to have become more settled after the birth of her baby and since her divorce from nightclub owner Todd Van Sickle.
Sugarland’s Jennifer married Todd Van Sickle in 1998. Todd was the owner of the famous nightclub ‘Eddie’s Attic’. According to sources, Todd was attracted to Jennifer because he saw the ‘wild child’ in her. Unfortunately, it was that same wild child along with Sugarland’s increasing popularity and the resultant increased touring that caused disharmony in the marriage.
Ultimately it ended in the couple drifting apart so much that they ended up divorcing in 2007. Unlike, many celebrity divorces, their divorce was handled gracefully by both, leaving no one the wiser regarding the real reason behind their split.
Happy family with Justin
Jennifer continued to grow in her music career post her divorce period and she found love again with entrepreneur and ex-model Justin Miller. The two actually met in 2006, when he appeared in the music video for the band’s song “Want To”. At the time Jennifer was still married, but it doesn’t seem too far-fetched to assume that there was a mutual interest.
Indeed, it is said that the two dated for two years before tying the knot in 2011. That means they would have gotten serious sometime after Jennifer’s divorce from Todd was finalized.
Almost exactly on the first anniversary of their sunset wedding, in November 2012, the couple had their first child together, son Magnus Hamilton Miller. It seems that Jennifer Nettles has finally found peace and love in her second marriage, the fact augmented by the comment she made in an interview where she declared that she is open to adding on to her family.
It would have helped immensely that the band went on a five-year hiatus after Magnus was born and only reunited in 2017.
For now, Jennifer and Justin are going strong, but there’s no new addition to the family in sight.
