Her wedding to Buddy Franklin last month came out of nowhere.
But as Jesinta Franklin settles into married life, the 25-year-old has spoken lovingly about her happy relationship.
Interviewed by Harper's Bazaar magazine, the model gushes about why she kept her big day a secret from the wider world.
'Getting married was such a sacred, reverent thing, we wanted to keep it just for ourselves,' she says.
The glamour girl, who appears on the cover of the magazine, also captioned an Instagram photo with, 'Dreams really do come true. My first shoot as Mrs @buddy_franklin23'.
Jesinta chose Instagram as the platform to announce that she and her long-term love had married in a secret ceremony.
Wearing a gorgeous Vera Wang dress, the pair looked deeply in love in the snap they released.
The couple have had a busy year with Jesinta releasing her book Live A Beautiful Life and Buddy playing AFL for the Sydney Swans.
