Jesinta Franklin reveals that she ‘is not the same’ after undergoing quarantine

Jesinta Franklin had a tough time during the 14-day mandatory hotel quarantine earlier this year.

The model finally quarantined in Queensland with her children and reunited with her AFL star husband Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin in the covid-sure AFL bubble in Victoria in August after the family had a total of six weeks apart.

And the 30-year-old has admitted that she found the experience rather traumatic.

‘I’m not the same person, I honestly am not. It was wild. I actually had two huge panic attacks in there, ‘she told The Daily Telegraph on Friday.

‘I had a mountain of dirty diapers in the bin. We had no fresh air. We had loud speakers in the room that would announce every time a meal came that would wake the kids up.

‘It was like being in a very funny Big Brother. Fire alarms went off at midnight, ‘she described.

‘When I was in there, I put so much energy into being positive, so when I came out I was exhausted,’ Jesinta added.

The model had flown up and ended hotel quarantine with daughter Tullulah, one and the young Bub Rocky, six months, with the intention of joining the Swans and Giants in their Queensland pods.

But she, along with over 100 other WAGs and family members, faced disappointment following Queensland’s Delta outbreak and the announcement of a three-day lockdown in which the Sydney teams were upset for the third time.

Jesinta shared several updates during her time in quarantine and posted photos on Instagram where she was washing dishes in the bathroom, eating dinner and doing laundry in the bathtub.

In a post, she admitted that she was exhausted after the trip and wrote, ‘I’m boiled.’

‘We’re going to have some great stories to tell Lulu and Rocky! I take so many pictures and videos to show them when they are older, ‘she said in another post.

Jesinta reunited with Buddy, after an interval of almost seven weeks, in early August.

She told The Herald Sun at the time she and her family were about to hop on a plane to Melbourne, where the Swans were expected to stay all season after Queensland’s Covid-19 outbreak.

‘It’s day by day and it’s all changed so many times but we hope to get out,’ she said.

‘It’s been hard, but it’s just the reality of the world we live in at the moment. Not just me and what all the other Swans and GWS players’ partners have to do, but thousands of Australians, she added.
