Australian super model Nicole Trunfio and her husband, Austin guitar hero Gary Clark Jr., are growing their family. The couple’s son, Zion, will be three in January, and last week, Trunfio announced on Instagram that the couple is “humbled” by the news that they will be “graced with the presence of a daughter in 2018.”
In another Instagram post Trunfio talked about how it feels to become mother to a girl into at this moment in time when sexual harassment scandals plague all areas of the entertainment industry, including Trunfio’s profession, high fashion modeling.
“In a world that can be so volatile at times, it seems crazy to bring another soul into it. Especially one so innocent and helpless, that is as susceptible to the chaos already present, created by strangers,” she wrote. “As an optimist, I couldn’t be more proud to be a woman at this moment in history, and to be bringing a girl into this world who I will raise to be strong, bold and brave.”
In the post she applauded the women who are coming forward to talk about the abuse they’ve experienced and called for solidarity between women.
“We need to harness the comradeship that exists between men, and stand behind one another,” she wrote. “Let us fight gracefully, for what we believe in for the futures of our girls.”
