From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jemma Madeleine Wellesley, Countess of Mornington, née Kidd (born 20 September 1974 in Guildford)[1], is an English countess (a courtesy title, derived from her grandfather-in-law's peerage), a make up artist, and a fashion model.

Jemma is the second daughter of Johnny and Wendy Madeline Hodge Kidd, the daughter of Sir John Rowland Hodge, 2nd Baronet.[2]. Jemma is also a paternal great-granddaughter of the newspaper baron Lord Beaverbrook who founded "The Daily Express".

The sister of international supermodel Jodie Kidd, Jemma led a successful career as a fashion model in her own right before discovering a new calling as a make-up artist. In 2003, Jemma opened her own "Make-up School" in London, and a cosmetics line of the same name was launched in 2006 and is available in the UK (in Boots), America, Australia, Hong Kong, and Canada.


She is married to Arthur Wellesley, Earl of Mornington, elder son and heir of the Marquess of Douro (himself eldest son and heir apparent of the Duke of Wellington). Their wedding took place at St James Church in Barbados on 4 June 2005.

On 12 September 2009, the couple announced they are expecting twins due in January 2010.[3] Lady Mornington gave birth to a girl and a boy, Lady Mae Madeleine and Arthur Darcy, who takes the courtesy title Viscount Wellesley. The twins were born in early January at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. She gave birth to twins; a girl Mae Madeline and a boy Arthur Darcy. [4]
