When she 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”.
In her interview with The Daily Telegraph, Jesinta 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.”
Jennifer Hawkins, who is also currently pregnant with her first child, has also opened up recently about having a miscarriage that led to the "toughest" year of her life.
