Jesinta Franklin has opened up about loving her body after giving birth to two children in a refreshingly candid post.

The Sydney model and husband Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin welcomed their daughter Tullulah and son Rocky just 13 months apart, in 2020 and 2021.

Speaking to the Herald Sun from Brisbane, where Jesinta is currently quarantining for two weeks in order to reunite with Buddy, she opened up about her body and a recent campaign with Seafolly.

“There was no hair and make up, it was all very pared back, but it’s nice to feel that little part of me is still alive,” the mum-of-two explained.

“I’ve had two babies in the space of 13 months, which is crazy, so my body doesn’t look the same as it did before, but I feel differently towards it now.”

The campaign was designed to represent the four pillars of the iconic swimwear brand – fashion, fit, sustainability and female empowerment.

Jesinta’s campaign, primarily photographed during her pregnancy with son Rocky, was themed around ‘love’, encompassing ideas of self-love and self-acceptance.

“I did feel a bit different being in a bikini, but it doesn’t bother me. There’s some rolls, cellulite, stretch marks and to me that’s all beautiful,” she told the Herald Sun.

Jesinta has been spending all her time with her two babies while in quarantine, often posting snaps of one-year-old Tullulah staring out windows, colouring in and cheekily reaching for the hotel room’s door handle.

“It’s day by day and the whole thing has changed so many times but we’re hoping to get out,” the model said.

“It’s been tough but it’s just the reality of the world we’re living in at the moment.”


Her separation from Buddy seems to have made the situation bittersweet, with both of their kids reaching certain milestones during the quarantine period.

“The kids have both grown so much, Tullulah said her first word in here and Rocky rolled for the first time, so we’re just trying to keep Bud involved in those moments as much as possible,” she explained.

“We’re very much at the tail end of it now and there’s light at the end of the tunnel.”
