The Australian model has always said she’ll keep her professional life and private life separate.
But Jesinta Franklin (nee Campbell) lovingly blurred the lines for her latest magazine cover, posing up a sensual storm alongside her Sydney Swans star husband Buddy Franklin for Marie Claire.
The 26-year-old former David Jones ambassador wore a stunning feather-coated Dior gown as she perched on Buddy’s lap. Her hand appeared to be caressing his arm.

Meanwhile Buddy, 30, shone in a plain white t-shirt, his heavily tattooed arm on full display.
Jesinta’s new blonde bob contrasted with her husband’s darker features, including the short-haired beard he was sporting.
Inside the magazine Jesinta opened up about the fact the pair were not actively ‘trying’ for a baby, but insisted they’re also not trying to avoid parenthood either.
The model proceeded to talk openly about how amazing Buddy is going to be as a parent.

That was news to his wife, who upon hearing the confession, jokingly chastised him for not letting her know these things earlier in their relationship.
‘I’m not even sure you’d call it dating. It was spending lots of time together but it wasn’t romantic then, which was frustrating at times. I thought he was just after a bit of fun,’ she said.
But once the line of communication opened, and each agreed they were smitten about the other, they became one of Australia’s hottest power couples.
‘You could’ve saved me going through hell thinking you just weren’t attracted to me! You could’ve save me so much money buying sexy lingerie when nothing was happening!’ she laughingly said.
Jesinta and Buddy got married in November 2016.
