It’s been quite a ride for Jesinta Campbell and her fiance, Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin.
After announcing their engagement in December 2014, AFL player Franklin faced a mental health crisis. The pair made headlines when Franklin withdrew from the AFL season, a time Campbell described as ‘tough and challenging’.
“When he [Franklin] was in care I was by myself for four weeks,” Campbell, 24, said during a Women in Conversation round table with David Jones. “My family were all away, I did everything by myself. I did not drop a single one of my work commitments. I showed up. Sometimes I was a nervous wreck before showing up.”
However, 2016 is looking brighter for the former Miss Universe Australia, although she has kept tight-lipped about her upcoming nuptials. Until now.
