Jesinta Franklin reveals how returning to work is 'really important' for her mental health

Jesinta Franklin is returning to work on Sunday with her ambassador role for Crown.

And the model, who shares daughter Tullulah, one, and 10-month-old son Rocky with her AFL star husband Lance ‘Buddy’ Frankin, revealed to The Daily Telegraph’s Stellar on Saturday how important her career is for her mental health.

‘It’s so nice to get back to work and the different elements of my career because as a mum you sacrifice so much for your children,’ the 30-year-old said.

‘You put your needs at the very bottom of the list of things to do, so it’s nice to step back into it. It’s also really important for my mental health to have something to strive for outside motherhood,’ the former Miss Universe Australia went on to say.

Jesinta and Buddy, 34, who are both ambassadors for Crown, will attend the Crown IMG Tennis Party in Melbourne on Sunday ahead of the 2022 Australian Open.

‘I’m not sure there is a secret… every relationship has its hurdles, and we all react differently to situations so it’s important to talk things through and keep an open mind,’ he said.

‘We have our hands full right now with two under two… but who knows what the future will bring’, he said.   

Buddy also said he hopes to impart his love of AFL upon his children, but won’t pressure them to follow in his footsteps by becoming athletes. 

‘I just want them to enjoy the game’, he said. 

‘Being able to bond over something I love and share that with them will be enough.’
