Jesinta And Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin Expecting their First Child Together!
Congratulations are in order for Jesinta and Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin with news the couple are expecting their first baby together!
The 28 year old model shared the announcement on her official app saying how excited she and her AFL husband are to become parents.
“My husband and I are so incredibly excited and overjoyed to announce that we have a baby on the way,” she wrote alongside a beautiful photo of herself cradling her baby bump. “The journey to get here hasn’t been easy and this little life is the greatest gift and we feel truly blessed and grateful that we will have a little angel of our own.”
Alluding to the fact that the journey to become parents hasn’t been easy, Jesinta said the last few years had been particularly difficult for both of them.
“We have both dreamt of this for a long time and whilst the last 2.5 years have been physically and emotionally challenging, there’s nothing we would change as it’s brought us to this beautiful moment,” the former Miss Universe Australia wrote. “The immense love we already have for our baby is indescribable and we can’t wait to meet our little miracle.”
The private couple were married in 2016 in a small intimate ceremony in the Blue Mountains, NSW after having dated for 4 years.
Fatherhood is something Buddy has spoken of in the past even saying he knows he definitely won’t be the disciplinarian in the relationship.
“My wife will have to take the reins on the discipline side of things,” the 32-year-old Sydney Swans player said during an interview last year.

We believe Valentine’s Day should be a celebration of all kinds of love 💕 So this year we took the people in our lives who enrich it and fill it, with not only love and laughter but also kindness and support, for a sunset cruise on Sydney harbour a week before V Day 💕💖 A true celebration of love on board the #diorloveboat. @diorparfums #missdiorforlove pic by @karah_tw
The footballer also went on to say the moment he saw Jesinta he felt an instant attraction- even it it was a cliche. “I knew as soon as I met her that I wanted to marry her,” he said. “As clichéd as that sounds, it was love at first sight for me.”
Congratulations you two! We’re all so happy for your baby news!
