She has also acted in a number of films and TV shows, most notably as a member of the British cast of Absolutely Fabulous where she appeared alongside Jennifer Aniston and Liv Tyler.
Jesinta was born in Adelaide, South Australia and was named after her grandmother who was also a popular local radio and television personality in the early 1970s. Her mother had always been very close to Jesinta and served as an active member of the family’s community and church. It was her grandmother who introduced Jesinta to the world of beauty pageants when she was only eight years old. From that point on, Jesinta developed a love for all things Italian and so began her long journey to become a world class Australian Miss Universe titleholder and model.
Jesinta has been married to Stephen Franklin since July 2021. They have two daughters, iza and Ava, and a son, George. Previous to being married to Stephen, Jesinta was married to Howard Owens who is described as “one of the biggest entertainment agents in Australia”. While there was a brief stint working for Owens, she ultimately decided to pursue her modeling career full time and have remained with the company through its acquisition by a Chinese conglomerate. At the time of this writing, Jesinta is still overseeing operations for the company out of her own home.

Jesinta Franklin has been compared to some of today’s top models and figures such as lingerie icon Victoria Beckham, Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie, supermodels Christy Turlington and James King, among others. The reason why so many people feel the need to compare Jesinta Franklin to such well-known figures is simply because she possesses a physique that can be considered attractive. Jesinta Franklin has brown hair and hazel eyes, which are assets that many women of her stature possess. Additionally, she is a registered nurse and has been active in community activism as well.
Jesinta Franklin is not the first mother to enter the public arena when it comes to child beauty pageants. Victoria Beckham was also an avid mother who won the Miss World title at the same time as she pursued a career in professional soccer. In recent times, former Miss Universe contestant Jesinta Franklin has also entered the limelight, but unlike Ms. Beckham, who became a full time mother, Jesinta Franklin has remained a career woman. She is currently the president of the Jesinta Franklin Foundation, which works to empower disadvantaged youth in underdeveloped areas.
While the reasons for Jesinta Franklin’s entry into the Miss Universe Australia were probably personal as well publicized, there are some theories as to the direction in which her career may be headed. As with any athlete who is newly married, there is the possibility that her marriage might become something more permanent than a love affair. Being an active member of the community and participating in various charity events could indicate a future direction in which her marriage could take. Even though she is currently committed to her role as the foundation’s president, it is entirely possible that she will one day pursue an involvement within the football industry. It will be interesting to follow her career path as she becomes involved in the ever-growing world of professional Australian Rules Football.
