Who is Jerry Seinfeld's wife, Jessica Seinfeld?
Seinfeld has spent his whole life convulsing his fans with laughter, so it was only natural for the world's greatest comedian to find himself a partner who would be as entertaining. Seinfeld's wife, author Jessica Seinfeld (Nina Sklar), may not be a comedian to the world, but Jerry t inks his wife is hilarious. "[Jessica is] very funny. From the day I met her, that was our connection," the Seinfeld actor said about his wife.

The Bee Movie actor met Jessica when she used to work as a publicist for Tommy Hilfiger in August 1998. As the two set out on a romantic venture, the budding couple gained widespread notoriety because of Jessica's marital status. Jessica, 50, was married to Eric Nederlander, the son of businessman Robert Nederlander when she started seeing Jerry, who she says was oblivious to her marriage with Eric.
After developing romantic feelings for the comedian, Jessica legally filed to be separated from Eric, who publicly rebuked his estranged wife's new romance with the comedian. "I was manipulated, misled, and completely caught off guard by Jessica’s infidelity," Eric said, adding, "Jerry and Jessica have no respect for decent values. They deserve each other."

Jessica, now an author of five cookbooks and the founder of the GOOD+ Foundation, married the Seinfeld actor within a year of meeting him. Jerry and Jessica tied the knots in an intimate ceremony with only close friends and family in attendance in New York on December 25, 1999. The couple now shares three kids, Sascha, 21, Julian, 19, and Shepherd, 16. Call it a result of their controversial start or the tabloids' consistent fixation on stars' personal life, but the couple has been keeping their family out of the spotlight.

Jerry credits his immediate connection with the cookbook author for their longstanding happy marriage. "We always have fun and we laugh and she’s got a great sense of humor. She’s very quick and sarcastic and all the qualities that I like. She’s very sharp. She catches all the wrongness," the comedian told Closer Weekly. But for Jessica, it's Seinfeld's honesty that she thinks has kept their relationship intact. "He’s the most incredible communicator and so he’s better at this relationship than I am," Jessica adds.
