Jake and Luke knew each other for a very long time and were close friends. All the fuss about them getting married started when a news story was posted on The Daily Caller, by reporter Betsy Rothstein.
It was reported that Luke was found shouting “HE SAID YESS!” from the rooftops of the Capitol on April 1, 2014. Luke’s jubilance reportedly had stemmed from a romantic dinner earlier the evening at the Capital Grille where he went on one knee and popped the question to his longtime BFF Sherman.
But little did the readers know that it was an April fool’s day prank. The air cleared up completely only when Jake came clean about his affair with his girlfriend Irene Jefferson. He had posted pictures of Irene on his Instagram.
Jake tied the knot with his gorgeous wife, Irene on February 15, 2015. She is an associate in the government affairs practice of the Washington law firm DLA Piper.
Irene graduated summa cum laude from Barnard College and got a law degree from Georgetown. They seem to be happy with their married life and no news of divorce has yet surfaced.
Though his April fool prank a lot of people speak negatively about him, the NBC star seems to be unaffected. Besides he seems to be very busy with his professional life. Moreover, he is often seen attending several of his friend's marriages and events.
