Jillian Harris is returning to the small screen! The former star of The Bachelorette and host of Love It or List It Vancouver is set to star in a new series with fiancé Justin Pasutto, called Jillian & Justin.
The four-part docuseries will give fans a glimpse into the interior designer’s life with her longtime love, and explores the couple’s experience as first-time parents to their son Leo. The series also follows the couple as they renovate their dream home in Kelowna, B.C. Jillian’s known to keep her more than 650,000 Instagram followers updated on what’s going on in her everyday life, but she promises that even her most devoted fans will learn something new about her on the show.
“I think we’re going to see a different side of me,” the TV and social media star tells Hello! Canada. “I reveal my good, my bad, my [insecurities]… It’s nerve-racking sharing that with the country. But at the same time I’m excited because it’s the real me.”
In the first episode, the Canadian couple welcomes their little boy – who was born in August 2016 – into the world with a camera crew in tow. “[There was] 15 people in the room, all talking, all laughing, asking questions and it sounds overwhelming but looking back it’s exactly the way my labour would go,” Jillian tells ET Canada.
Now that filming has wrapped, Jillian can’t wait to see her family’s ups and downs on the small screen. “It was definitely not easy documenting an already crazy, busy life, but we made it work. It was such a cool opportunity and cool experience,” she tells Hello! Canada. Still, there’s one other show Jillian can’t miss: The Bachelorette! Not only does the Canadian watch every dramatic episode, she also writes recaps on her website. “I’m still obsessed with it and I can’t believe I did it,” she tells us.
See the premiere of Jillian & Justin June 21 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on W Network.
