Who is Survivor host Jonathan LaPaglia's wife? Here's what we know

Why be Sole Survivor when you can have a partner in crime?

Survivor host Jonathan LaPaglia has earned himself a hoard of dedicated followers for his witty one-liners and impressive guns. But unfortunately for some, he is no eligible bachelor.
In fact, JLP has been hitched since 1998 and while we don't know too much about his leading lady, here's what we do know about the TV personality and actor's wife.
Jonathan LaPaglia has been married to Ursula Brooks since 1998.
As an actress, Ursula has starred in films including the 2009 black comedy Happy in the Valley and the film adaptation of the Dan Brown novel, Angels and Demons. Ursula has also written two TV movies, Enough About You and How Divine!
Like her husband, Ursula was born in Australia though while she was born in Sydney, Jonathan originally hails from Adelaide.

The couple are proud parents to one daughter, Tilly born in 2004. And back when season two of Survivor was approaching the finale, Jonathan was keen to impress Tilly and her pals.
"I now have some street cred with her buddies at soccer," Jonathan told TV WEEK in 2017.
"A couple of girls on her team are huge Survivor nuts," he grins. "I think I need to take the snuffer [the item used to extinguish a contestant's torch when voted out] from the set and give it to her!"
The family of three, plus their new puppy who joined the family in 2018, reside in California.
"New puppy this week. Love at first sight," JLP captioned this snap of Tilly and their family pooch. (Image: Instagram @jonathanlapaglia)
He may not be the frequent poster on Instagram, but both Ursula and Tilly make the odd appearance on JLP's account.
In a sweet tribute to his wife back in 2017, the Survivor host shared a sweet photo of his wife and daughter smiling sweetly at the camera.
"Big congrats to Ursula Brooks for winning 1st Prize TV Comedy Pilot at LA Comedy Festival @lacomedyfest Now all we need to do is get it made #helpmefindaproducer 🤑," he captioned it.

Ursula and Tilly aren't too far away when Jonathan is filming Survivor either.
In 2017 when the reality show was filmed in Samoa, the show's host shared a photo of the pair in their swimmers walking hand-in-hand down the beach.
Let's just hope they didn't have to survive on rice and beans!

Jonathan LaPaglia is the younger brother of fellow actor Anthony LaPaglia, who married his third wife Alexandra Henkel in a lavish wedding in April 2018.
Though her Instagram is now on private, the blushing bride shared some sweet snaps three months after tying the knot and wrote alongside a picture of her in a wedding dress: "28.4.2018. The day I married the love of my life."
