The girlfriend has no criminal background and poses no harm to the children. The mother is just jealous. Dad has visitation rights and pays child support.

Based on your facts, no, there is no legal right to preclude girlfriend from seeing the kids. I'd be careful and tread lightly with mom though, as "just jealous" moms can cause a lot of legal trouble, especially if they fear girlfriend is replacing them. Don't give her any reason to be vindictive.
