By Christine Torralba | 2 years ago

Former Australian beauty queen Jesinta Campbell is now off the market! Just recently, the 23-year-old and her AFL star boyfriend Buddy Franklin announced their engagement. The couple turned to Instagram to announce their happy engagement with Campbell writing: "I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with you. There are no words to describe how happy we are."

Earlier reports of the couple’s engagement started as early as October. The couple, however, denied these questions as merely rumors. Now that their engagement has officially been announced, congratulations from both parties’ circle of friends and family members have already started to pour in.


Sharing the news of their engagement on Instagram was no out of the ordinary deal for the couple. After having been together since October 2013, their Instagram accounts have been very filled with nothing but evidence of how head over heels they are for each other.

Despite having been crowned Miss Universe Australia in 2010, Campbell revealed to Women’s Health magazine that she never felt sexy until she started to date 27-year-old Franklin. The beauty queen also shares that her particular relationship with the AFL star has allowed her to be herself and fully accept who she is. She says that it was the support of her relationship with the professional athlete that allowed her to "come into" herself.

Apart from the recent engagement news, the couple just returned from a holiday in Europe. With her return, Campbell shares that she wants to take the time to focus on her career as a businesswoman and also have a family of her own. A few months after they started dating, the couple moved into their Bondi home and even adopted a Staffordshire terrier and named him Axel.

While this marks the start of their "family," Campbell wants the real thing and hopes to start a family in five years. With the engagement on the way, who knows what could happen next in their relationship?

We’re happy for the couple! Are you? Let us know in the comments below.
