In September 2022 the pair sparked split rumors after they unfollowed each other on social media, after previously sharing multiple loved-up posts.
They then refollowed each other with Jackson brushing off split speculation as he gushed about his wife in a chat with E!News.
He said: ‘She is undeniably one of the most beautiful women on the planet. And she always smashes it when she’s on the red carpet. That is truly a wonder to behold.
‘But I will tell you, that there is nothing like waking up in the morning, opening my eyes and seeing her face in the morning.’
Jodie and Joshua married in 2019 after meeting through mutual friends in 2018 and initially insisting that their romance was just ‘casual’.
She has previously revealed their romance started as a one-night stand.
In 2021 Jodie made an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers and joked about how despite getting off to a quick start, their relationship was still going strong.
‘When I first met my husband, we had a one-night stand,’ she told the host. ‘We’re in a two, three-year one-night stand now.’
She went on to tell Seth the story of how they met at a party and both felt an instant connection.
‘First of all, I saw him before he saw me and when I saw him, I was like, “I want that,” she said. ‘And then when he saw me, I just pretended like I didn’t see him.’
While she seemed unimpressed with Joshua’s opening line, she explained how he came over and did his ‘cute and charming thing.’
‘All night he followed me around the party,’ The Last Ship actress added. ‘He felt the energy. He felt it.’

The pair began dating in October 2018 and tied the knot in December 2019 after the actress proposed during a New Year’s Eve holiday in Nicaragua, with Joshua ‘instinctively’ saying yes.
Jodie was a banker before meeting Pharrell Williams who convinced her to become a model and move to Los Angeles. She made her acting debut in 2013 when she played a siren in the HBO series True Blood.
Turner-Smith rose to prominence after starring in the 2019 film, Queen & Slim.
She previously told People magazine that she appreciated being married to someone who has so much experience in the industry.
Joshua has been acting since 1991 and starred as Pacey Witter in the hit teen show, Dawson’s Creek, from 1998 to 2003.
‘He has a wealth of experience to offer and advice to offer that’s based on experience,’ Jodie said. ‘And I love that. I just love picking his brain about things. I’m somebody who’s just beginning. So that energy of someone who’s just beginning, that excitement, that just everything and anything is possible, I think that I really inspire him with that.’
The Nightflyers actress told Seth that she watched Dawson’s Creek when she was growing up and she was ‘Team Pacey’.
One of the show’s major storylines was the love triangle between Pacey, Joey(Katie Holmes) and Dawson(James Van Der Beek). It caused fan wars between those who were rooting for Pacey and those who were ‘Team Dawson.’
Ex: Before meeting Jodie, Joshua was in a decade-long romance with Diane Kruger, which ended in 2016 (pictured 2015) She is now in a relationship with Norman Reedus and shares a daughter with him
‘No offense to Dawson but it was all about Pacey,’ she said.
Prior to his relationship with Smith, Jackson was in a decade-long romance with Diane Kruger, 47, which ended in 2016.
Diane started dating Josh after she split from her husband of five years, French director Guillaume Canet.
Diane is now in a relationship with The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus and the pair share a daughter, Nova, four.
