She revealed her dad Martin tragically passed away last February after being diagnosed with lung cancer a year and a half ago.

Speaking about her dad, Jenna said: "Growing up, I was definitely a daddy's girl. My dad got diagnosed with lung cancer about a year and a half ago and just very quickly deteriorated."

Her voice started shaking as she grew tearful about her devastating family loss, and was seen wiping tears away from her eyes.

Jenna proceeded to explain how much her dad meant to her, and how he's inspired her to live life to the fullest.

"If you're not happy, just make sure you change something. That was what made me go for my shot."

Later on, Jenna could be seen clutching a framed photo of her dad on her wedding day in a sweet tribute to the man.
