Jesinta Franklin is, quite frankly, glowing.

The mum-of-one, who is due in March, has been sharing her journey on Instagram with her 378,000-strong following – and on Monday, she ramped things up a notch.

The Australian model and influencer, who is married to footy legend Buddy Franklin, took to her social platform yesterday to share some gorgeous behind the scenes snaps from a photo-shoot with Aussie swimwear label, Seafolly.

The stunning mum modelled several different bikinis with her bump on show – creating a unique and refreshing series of promo images for the brand’s collections, titled, The Love Series.

In the snaps, Jestinta first gives fans a glimpse of her touch ups behind the scenes, writing about how she was “glossed and glammed” for the shoot ahead.

Then, it was shoot time, with the pregnant mum in her natural modelling element in front of the lens.

She modelled a series of gorgeous black and white bikini pieces for the brand.

Posing up a storm, the pregnancy shoot was both eye-catching, and refreshing.


Jesinta shared some takes from the shoot, including a gorgeous shot of herself and one-year-old daughter Tullulah basking in the sunshine.

“Love for me means spending quality time with my greatest loves, Tullulah + Baby number 2. Spending time with my family in the sunshine either by the beach or the pool reminds me so much of my childhood on the Gold Coast,” she penned.

The gorgeous model has been candid about her second pregnancy, sharing an honest insight into her anxieties around motherhood for a second time around.

Posting a picture of herself walking a pram with baby Tullulah this week, she wrote: “Pre- dinner waddle to the shops. Can’t believe we’ll be whipping out the double pram soon. Would love any advice/tips from other mums with a 1 year old and newborn. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous.”

Jesinta shared a raw and honest update asking fellow mums for advice or tips with two children under the age of two.


Jesinta is in good company – her post was met with hundreds of comments of support from her friends and fans.

“You’ve got this, best of luck beautiful,” wrote her pal Kate Waterhouse.

Meanwhile, Leah Madden, creative director of White Sands Swimwear, gave her some pearls of wisdom.

“I had my [second two] very close together, and remembering that taking care of yourself is so important. Rest when you can, forget trying to keep the house immaculate/ getting your figure back/ dressing to impress, and focus on yourself, your babies and your husband,” she wrote.

She summed up her explanation beautifully: “It goes so quickly. You only have a newborn for a few weeks, a infant for a few months, a toddler for a couple of years, and a then child for a few more.”

Clearly touched, Jestina wrote back: “Love this. Thank you for sharing.”
