From the runway and photoshoots to beach strolls and mid-day snuggles: Jennifer Hawkins cherishes her family above everything else

''I’m absolutely loving it, but it’s not glamorous at all is it?''

Jennifer Hawkins' life look a little different compared to her former jet-setting life as an international model.
These days, the former Miss Universe Australia's days are filled with early sunrises, nappies, beach days, and cuddles as she has totally embraced family life and taken to marriage and motherhood with absolute ease.
In 2013 Jen and husband Jake Wall tied the knot but they initially struggled to fall pregnant due to a fertility battle. The model and businesswoman later discovered she had endometriosis.
"As a woman and a type A personality, I'm used to planning everything. I think this will happen, then this will happen. It seemed like a lifetime as month after month people constantly asked us when we were going to have a baby," Jen told Stellar Magazine* in 2019.
However by October 2019, Jen and Jake were parents to their precious daughter, Frankie Violet. During an appearance on The Morning Show, the smitten new mum made it clear that it's the highlight of her life.
"I'm absolutely loving it, but it's not glamorous at all is it?" she remarked.
"There's so many things you laugh about, like the spews and poos and everything that happens. You're with them 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so it feels like she's been with me for two years. You're up feeding, sleep deprivation, everything. Everything changes when you become a mum."
For the next two years, Jen would share precious moments with Frankie, like her daughter eating cake with her fists and trying on her mother's oversized heels.
But Jake and Jen's oasis of three grew to a perfect four when their son Hendrix Hawkins-Wall came into the world in October 2021.
Taking to Instagram to share her joyful news, Jen wrote: "Hendrix Hawkins-Wall. Welcome to the world, our sweet boy. 🤍🤍🤍.
"What a week it's been! Our little man wanted to say hello to the world earlier than expected and has needed some extra care but is now doing so well and is healthy and strong!! We could not be more grateful or more in love!! 🥰 •20/10/21• @jake_w_wall."
Following his birth, the proud mum-of-two gave her fans a glimpse inside their cosy world by posting a video of Frankie and Hendrix bonding – a moment that sings to every parent's dreams.
Frankie is enamoured by her little brother in the family footage after planting a kiss on him, and their dad can be heard saying, "It's your baby bro! Say hey Hendrix," in the background.
So, bask under the sunshine of the model's young family by pouring over this gallery of their priceless moments.
