However, they decided to make their relationship work.
And while in high school, they were in a long-distance relationship. Toward the end of Jessica’s freshman year, she met a man named Drake Roque. Since Jessica was already in a relationship with Gabe then, Drake did not ask her out despite having feelings for her.
By the end of her freshman year, Jessica switched her school to move to Gabe’s school. They started spending more time together.

Again, they got back together later and started living together too. Jessica got pregnant again, and on March 3, 2014, their third son from Drake, Landen Joseph, was born.
