The sweet video post echoed Jennifer’s birthday tribute to her daughter last year, which saw a video montage, set to the tear-jerking tune of ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow.’

In the sweet footage, fans were delighted to see the family watch a radiant sunrise together, Frankie play with her younger brother Hendrix, and share plenty of cuddles with both mum and dad, Jake Wall.

The former Miss Universe Australia accompanied the heartwarming video with an equally saccharine caption for the special day.

“Happy 3rd birthday to our Frankie girl!!!,” she wrote. “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’s journey to motherhood hasn’t been smooth sailing.

While she and Jake tied the knot in 2013, 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.

But 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.”

The parents’ brood of three grew to a perfect four when their son Hendrix Hawkins-Wall came into the world in October 2021. Now, the family can’t get enough of each other as they continue to make many memories.
