“Jesinta and Lance are thrilled to announce the arrival of their beautiful baby daughter, Tallulah Franklin,” a spokeswoman for the couple said told The Daily Telegraph. "They are both absolutely besotted with her."
The couple first announced they were expecting back in August. When Franklin announced her pregnancy on her Jesinta Franklin app, she said, “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.”
“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,” she continued, calling her baby “our little miracle”.
“We were trying for years and years,” Jesinta later told The Daily Telegraph.
The model and former David Jones ambassador also talked about how their conception troubles have brought her and Buddy closer together as a couple. “I think that the challenges that we went through have strengthened our relationship and made us more appreciative of what’s happening. We’re obviously really happy and excited at the moment, feeling very loved up.”
Jesinta hopes that by speaking out about their pregnancy issues, she will help other women realise they’re not alone. “I thought it was important to speak about it because I know a lot of women and couples who struggle. It’s not something that’s openly talked about, there’s a big stigma around it so if I can share my journey then hopefully I can give someone else hope.”
“I just feel so lovey and happy at the moment, I think because of all the pregnancy hormones.”
