Model and former Miss Universe Australia Jesinta Franklin has showed off her gorgeous baby bump on cute date night out with husband Buddy Franklin.
The 28-year-old is about 14 weeks pregnant and has been open about the many changes her body has undergone during her first trimester.
"There are lots of different stretch marks that I didn't have before and I've noticed some cellulite and I've gone up a few sizes but I could put on 100kg and have a body covered in stretch marks and it would not bother me at all," she told the Herald Sun last month.
"My physical appearance and how I look means nothing to me in comparison to having a baby and starting a family."
On Tuesday night Jesinta showed us she certainly hasn't yet resorted to a wardrobe of maternity clothes with elasticised waists, as she stepped out with Buddy wearing a gorgeous on-trend new dress from Aussie designer Dion Lee.
She posted this cute black-and-white snap of herself and the AFL star on her Instagram stories, with the caption, "Date night".

The dress featured some sexy cut-outs around the hips, which Jesinta joked would require a last-minute change from her "comfy undies".
"Well, it looks like the comfy undies won't be coming out tonight #damn #it," she wrote on her Instagram stories.

Jesinta has been super honest about her difficult pregnancy so far. She has described her first trimester as "like the worst hangover times 1000 for 12 weeks straight".
And of course gaining weight, plus some stretch marks and cellulite is a completely expected part of pregnancy, but the bikini model says she couldn't care less about gaining a few extra kilos, joking that she has become quite "top-heavy".
Jesinta also joked about her pregnancy weight gain on Instagram earlier this month, posting a black-and-white selfie to her stories with the caption: "Can't wait for the front to catch up to the back. My butt seems to be expanding by the day haha".
She showed off her gorgeous new baby bump last month at a spring fashion event for department store Myer, holding onto her belly Meghan Markle-style in these cute new photos, as you can see below.

When she announced her pregnancy last month, Jesinta hinted that she and husband Lance "Buddy" Franklin, who plays AFL for the Sydney Swans, had experienced some fertility struggles.
"My husband and I are so incredibly excited and overjoyed to announce that we have a baby on the way," Jesinta wrote on her app, adding that the process of falling pregnant was not a simple one.
"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," she said.

"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," Jesinta said.
"The immense love we already have for our baby is indescribable and we can't wait to meet our little miracle."
