“This is our dream house!” the star tells Architectural Digest. The 38-year-old lives in the L.A. home with her husband, Cash Warren, and their three kids — daughters Honor, 10, Haven, 7, and son Hayes, 1. The couple, married since 2008, knew exactly the type of place they wanted to live in after living in the same place for almost a decade.
“We wanted a place to watch our kids play and grow up,” the Dark Angel alum tells the outlet, adding that she and her man were looking for a residence with more space and a big backyard. Upon stepping into their current home, Jessica knew instantly this was what she wanted.
“I thought, I have an imagination and I know what I want. I walked in and knew within 20 minutes, even though [the previous owners’ style] wasn’t our vibe, this was exactly what we were looking for,” she recalls. However, the place still needed some work.
“I was like, ‘I’m pretty much fine with everything; let’s just paint it!’ And then all of a sudden we walked into the house, and it had been stripped down to the studs. I mean, there were literally no walls!” the Fantastic Four star explained. “I said to Cash, ‘Did we know this was going to happen?’ And he said, ‘This explains the bill!’ ”Apparently you can’t just pop off crown moldings.”
“I thought, I have an imagination and I know what I want. I walked in and knew within 20 minutes, even though [the previous owners’ style] wasn’t our vibe, this was exactly what we were looking for,” she adds, revealing that renovations took a total of 18 months.
These days, while Jessica doesn’t act as much as she used to, she is still quite the busy business woman, and yet she never feels overwhelmed by her job and mommy duties. “You’re going to make mistakes,” she once shared with Us Weekly. “Try to learn from them. At the end of the day, if you’re doing your best, that’s all you can really do.”

When my 1 yr old poops in the tub and I ask my 7 & 10 yr old to clean it for me b/c… #imbaby #ihatewetpoo 💩🛀 #momlifebelike 🥴#honestlynotkillingtheparentinggame #adultingishard #sendhelp and you can check out the stories ⚠️ WARNING it’s nasty 🤢 -half of it ended up in the main tub and the baby tub drain was open and filled w poo. I should have dumped it in the toilet but I didn’t want the chance of it spilling on the floor. #momfail
She continued, “I have a great support system, and a great husband,” adding that she has a “great team” at her consumer goods company.
We are so happy for Jessica and all that she has accomplished!
