Jill Goodacre - Harry Connick Jr.'s Wife

Jill Goodacre is the wife of Harry Connick Jr. and mother to his three daughters Georgia, Sarah, and Charlotte. The two married on April 16, 1994 and live together in New Canaan, Connecticut. Goodacre is a former lingerie model, who was most known for her modeling with Victoria's Secret. Wetpaint reported: Jill was one of the main models for Victoria’s Secret in the ‘80s and ‘90s, and paved the way for future lingerie models like Angels Alessandra Ambrosio and Adriana Lima. Back then, Jill modeled alongside Stephanie Seymour and Frederique (remember them?!), and was a big deal in the modeling world. She also appeared on an episode of Friends as herself, making the character Chandler crazy with excitement as he was trapped in an ATM vestibule with her during a blackout on the show. Connick once told the Huffington Post that the secret to his marriage with Goodacre was this: I think it’s different for everybody but I love my wife and I know she loves me. We’re best friends. We’re just lucky to have found each other. It takes a lot of work but I just feel very blessed that I found the right person. It’s a very fortunate situation and not everyone has that. When Connick first met Goodacre, he used a corny line on her and it actually worked. He told OK! Magazine: When I saw her, I did a triple take. I went right up to her and introduce myself. I had never seen anybody that pretty in person. She’s strong, very secure, and extremely smart. I have learned a lot from her, and I continue to. You may have seen Goodacre appear in some of Connick's music videos over the years ...
