Buddy Franklin’s daughter Tullulah waves to her AFL star father at a Grand Final parade ahead of Sydney Swans showdown against Geelong

Buddy Franklin’s daughter Tullulah couldn’t believe her eyes when her AFL superstar dad was driven past at a pre-Grand Final parade in Melbourne on Friday.

The two-year-old was carried by Buddy’s mother-in-law Valerie Campbell, while his excited wife Jesinta Franklin waved and cheered beside them.

The beaming Sydney Swans great, 35, waved to his family as they sat on the back of a white Toyota Hilux before reuniting at the end of the parade.

Jesinta, 31, greeted her husband with a kiss on the cheek and the couple hugged briefly before Buddy took son Rocky, one, in his arms while Jesinta held Tullulah.

Tallulah wore a replica of Sydney Swans guernsey with the word ‘daddy’ above her famous father’s number 23 on the back.

Jesinta opted for an all-black activewear ensemble plus a matching cap.

The Franklins, who married in 2016, are one of the AFL’s most famous couples.

A former Miss Universe Australia fashion influencer, Jesinta recently qualified as an accredited AFL players agent.

The Franklins' children both wore matching red and white Nike shoes in support of their father, a key striker for the Sydney Swans, as well as No. 23 jerseys

Last week, Buddy shocked the football world by signing a one-year contract extension for the 2023 season.

His nine-year $10 million deal with the Swans expires at the end of the season, and his future has long been the subject of speculation.

However, the two-time premiership winner himself put an end to the rumors on Monday night with a succinct two-word statement that simply read: “One more.”

Buddy will play in his sixth grand final when the Swans face Geelong on Saturday. Despite his many accolades in Swans colors, he has yet to win a premiership for the blood that fell short in both 2014 and 2016.
