Jaclyn Hill Celebrates Husband Jon’s Sobriety with Emotional Trip

By  | 

Jaclyn Hill got married to husband Jon Hill in 2009, about two years before she started her YouTube channel. The 27-year-old has been pretty open that she and the 29-year-old have had her struggles over the years, but no one knew exactly what that meant. Turns out, the professional drummer was secretly battling addiction while his wife was rising to fame in the makeup industry. Luckily, Jon was able to get help and is now celebrating his 4-year anniversary of being sober.

The musician posted an emotional picture to his Instagram page yesterday that showed him and Jac locked in an embrace standing in front of an apartment complex. Here’s what he captioned the photo:

“In celebration of to my 4-year anniversary of being clean, last night in Chicago, we visited the apartment we lived in during the darkest times of my life (our lives) where I emotionally hurt Jaclyn tremendously. As soon as we stepped foot outside the car, Jaclyn started crying uncontrollably. we ended the night by praying, thanking God in a huddle in the street. What an unbelievable experience. True closure. This photo means the world to me. To a 2nd chance at life, my friendships & my marriage. It’s never too late to turn your life around even if you believe you will never escape. It’s never too late for forgiveness.”

The makeup artist re-uploaded her husband’s post and expressed her pride in how far he’s come over the past four years.

“I’m so proud of the man he has become,” she wrote. “I’m so thankful for our journey.”

Jaclyn took a break from YouTube a little over a year ago because Jon was suffering from seizures and doctors couldn’t figure out why.

We commend Jon for sharing his story and encouraging others who are struggling.
