Jennifer Hawkins’ life looks a little different these days, compared to her past as an international model.
In recent years, the former Miss Universe Australia’s days are filled with early mornings, nappies and cuddles as she has totally embraced family life, marriage and motherhood.
In 2013, Jen and husband Jake Wall tied the knot but they initially struggled to fall pregnant due to a fertility battle. The model and businesswoman later discovered she had endometriosis.
“As a woman and a type A personality, I’m used to planning everything. I think this will happen, then this will happen. It seemed like a lifetime as month after month people constantly asked us when we were going to have a baby,” Jen told Stellar Magazine in 2019.
However by October 2019, Jen and Jake were parents to their precious daughter, Frankie Violet. During an appearance on The Morning Show, the smitten new mum made it clear that it’s the highlight of her life.
“I’m absolutely loving it, but it’s not glamorous at all is it?” she remarked.
“There’s so many things you laugh about, like the spews and poos and everything that happens. You’re with them 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so it feels like she’s been with me for two years. You’re up feeding, sleep deprivation, everything. Everything changes when you become a mum.”
For the next two years, Jen would share precious moments with Frankie, like her daughter eating cake with her fists and trying on her mother’s oversized heels.
But Jake and Jen’s oasis of three grew to a perfect four when their son Hendrix Hawkins-Wall came into the world in October 2021, and the sharing of precious moments extended to include little Hendrix.
So, bask under the sunshine of the model’s young family by poring over this gallery of their sweetest moments.
Jen and Jake have been married since 2013.
Frankie Violet Hawkins-Wall was born in October 2019.
Nights like these have made the model’s life so special.
Frankie loves going to the beach with her parents.
“My girl,” Jen captioned this sweet snap.
Frankie looks adorable in her pink outfit, which perfectly complements her mum’s beanie.
The trio waited patiently for their fourth member in 2021, and he was clearly excited, too, because he decided to enter the world a little early.
Hendrix Hawkins-Wall joined the family in October 2021.
“My heart! Couldn’t love these lil ones more. #alsosendcoffee,” gushed Jen alongside this adorable photo.
Frankie and Hendrix were quickly obsessed with each other; Jen’s heart must be so whole.
To mark her 38th birthday, Jen shared several snaps of her adorable brood.
“My babies in my arms, hubby, friends & family love- all I need. And also maybe a fresh margarita at exactly 5pm with bday cake!!”
“A few days of Christmas.. and the first for our sweet baby boy Hendrix. Fun weekend! Beautiful memories made,” Jen captioned this holiday snap.
What a sweet sibling bond!
Jen couldn’t resist snapping a photo of this tender moment between her children as Frankie gave Hendrix a gentle kiss on the forehead.
The doting mum just can’t get enough of her baby boy, posting this darling snap with Hendrix alongside the caption: “So much love.”
And from the looks of this follow-up photo, Hendrix is just as obsessed with his mama!
Talk about a mum on the go; Jen took Hendrix along for her hair appointment and cradled him in her arms as she had her trim.
Sharing this family snap to social media, Jen beamed at her daughter Frankie while sitting in the yard. Eagle-eyed fans also noticed that her PJ pants matched Hendrix’s onesie – too cute!
Jen shared this previously unseen snap with husband Jake from the day Hendrix was born to mark Mother’s Day 2022, captioning the intimate photo “My boys. You both have my heart.”
After years of lockdowns, Jen took the chance to escape to Fiji with the whole family in May 2022.
“Fiji with my little fam,” she captioned a series of delightful family snaps she shared to Instagram from their travels.
In August 2022, Jen treated fans to a slew of photos that proved she’s got the mum-of-two juggle down to an art with Hendrix in the harness and Frankie holding tight to her mum’s hand on a beach walk.
It’s easy to imagine Jen and Jake living a very glamorous life at home, but as this picture from September 2022 proves, even famous parents enjoy the little things. Jake snapped this sweet moment between Jen and their kids as they watched the sun set together.
“Happy 3rd birthday to our Frankie girl!!! You brighten our world and have shown me the deepest most intense love!! I am so proud to be your mummy! And proud of who you are – so caring, sweet, funny, silly and sensitive! We love you so much,” Jen wrote in a sweet tribute to her daughter.
Jen shared this lovely image of her and her children on Instagram in September 2023. “Lately. Couldn’t love you more! Why is cookie a giant already tho?! Lol [laugh out loud],” she captioned it.
For Frankie’s birthday, Jen took to Instagram to share an incredibly sweet montage of family photos and videos – that included this beautiful ocean picture of the mother and daughter.
“Our sweet Frankie girl…. is 4 today!!! You are an absolute treasure, always so caring and sweet with a very cheeky side and smile like the sunshine! I’m so proud to be your mummy! We love you so much sweetheart! Have a happpppy birthday! xx,” Jennifer captioned her post in October 2023.
For Hendrix’s birthday on October 20, 2023, Jen penned a heartfelt message to her son on Instagram.
“Happy 2nd birthday to our beautiful little boy Hendrix!! Such a sweet soul, so caring, affectionate! Also a funny little dude! We love you so much!! I’m so proud to be your mummy,” Jennifer wrote alongside an adorable montage of family videos and photos.
In late November 2023, Jennifer shared “a few cutie moments,” including this picture of her and Hendrix…
And this photo of Frankie and Hendrix sharing a pram.
