Jesinta and Lance 'Buddy' Franklin join campaign for Constitutional recognition

‘We want our child to feel included, recognised, heard and worthy’: Jesinta and AFL star husband Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin join campaign for Indigenous constitutional recognition

Indigenous Sydney Swans star Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin is expecting his first child with model wife Jesinta Franklin in 2020.

And in Marie Claire’s special ‘The Time Is Now’ February issue, the soon-to-be parents put their celebrity voices behind a campaign close to their hearts. 

‘We want our child to feel included, recognised, heard and worthy, which is why constitutional recognition is so important to us,’ Jesinta told the magazine.

Buddy and Jesinta join a host of prominent stars who are campaigning for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to be acknowledged in our nation’s constitution.  

‘My mum is a Noongar-Whadjuk woman and she taught me to be proud of who I am,’ Buddy said, but admitted his heritage was often not spoken about in his family due to ‘hurt from the past’. 

Acknowledging that racism, discrimination and challenges still face Indigenous people, he hoped by sharing his story and campaigning for change could ‘educate people and bring respect and a sense of pride from all Australians about who we are’.

Buddy’s wife Jesinta said she had also seen racism directed at her husband and his family first-hand over the years and was appalled.

Jesinta and AFL player Lance tied the knot in a lavish wedding in 2016.   

‘I know I'm going to have these discussions with my child and explain the dark parts of history, but we also want to celebrate the beautiful Indigenous culture and stories,’ Jesinta added.

Buddy told the Daily Telegraph in August that he knew, and recognised, the importance of being a role model for the next generation. 

‘It's a real privilege to be able to play the game I love and I want to inspire other indigenous kids to achieve their best – the opportunity is definitely there for them if they're prepared to work hard and put in that effort,’ he said.

Jesinta and Buddy are joined by Indigenous Australian stars Jessica Mauboy, Samantha Harris, and Miranda Tapsell in Marie Claire’s February issue.
