Jesinta, who is married to AFL star Lance ‘ Buddy’ Franklin, told the publication it has been a long journey ‘of self-love’ and ‘learning to love my new body’.

‘Your body goes through so many changes when you’re pregnant, I probably don’t feel as confident as I used to feel in a swimsuit,’ she added.

Jesinta recently shot a campaign for Australian swimsuit brand, Seafolly, where she happily showed off her blossoming baby bump in a bikini at her home in Sydney’s Rose Bay.

The shoot featured a rare appearance from her adorable toddler Tallulah, who will turn one next month. 

Jesinta said she likes to limit posts about her daughter on social media until she has a choice in how she interacts with the platform. 

‘It’s never been about trying to hide Tallulah… it’s about allowing her to have the choice of how she interacts with social media,’ Jeasinta explained.

Jesinta revealed with her first pregnancy that she gained 18 kilograms. But said she was unbothered by it in an Instagram Q&A.  

‘I was working too much, training too hard and not eating enough as I was always on the go,’ she said, prior to getting pregnant.  

‘Since giving birth, I just look at my body in awe now. I cannot believe I grew and birthed a little human, it is truly amazing and I am so grateful,’ Jesinta added.

‘It was a very big surprise for us. Tullulah [her daughter] will be getting a sibling at the end of March next year, so she will have just turned one,’ she said.

‘So I’ll have a 13-month-old and a newborn, which was very daunting at first,’ she added.
