Will Jessica’s children follow in her footsteps with acting, business or TikToking?
As she follows her kids on TikTok, she replied, “These are their own people, you know? I want them to explore creativity and think outside the box, and I think everyone wants to feel valued and experience joy most of the time… I try to encourage them to face scary things outside out of their comfort zone, trying things that feel a little different, a little weird and I just think that builds good people. I never want them to think they have to be like me.
