‘It was lockdowns and not being able to see my family, not being able to have the support, living in AFL hubs, having a husband that was on the road constantly and having to live under all these strict guidelines in order for him to continue to play football.’

The mother-of-two went on to say she felt ‘mentally and emotionally depleted more than anything else’.

‘It’s probably taken me till about now to come right,’ she added.

In December, Jesinta revealed that welcoming two children in the last two years has ‘tested’ her marriage to Buddy.

She confessed to Stellar that both she and Buddy have struggled to spend quality time together due to their duties as parents.

‘A lot of people don’t talk about how hard it is on your marriage having children,’ she said.

‘We really haven’t had much time just us two without the kids, but we’re a very tight-knit family.’

She continued: ‘It’s definitely not perfect, but we try to focus on being a team and facing the challenges together,’ she said of herself and Buddy.’

Jesinta also praised her husband for being a proactive and doting dad to their kids.

‘Bud is so hands-on and supportive, and I really missed that when he was gone. I’m really lucky to have a partner who is such an amazing father,’ she said, referring when he was away for the footy season.
