Jesinta paired the frock with a pair of cosy sandals.
The brunette beauty wore her shoulder length locks in a natural wavy style and let her pregnancy glow shine through by wearing minimal makeup.
The former Miss Universe Australia welcomed daughter Tullulah in February last year with Buddy.
And in an interview with the Herald Sun last month, Buddy, 34, confirmed that Jesinta was just weeks away from giving birth to their second child.

‘We are five or six weeks away from having our second. I am really excited about that and can’t wait to become a father for the second time,’ he said.
Meanwhile, Jesinta recently admitted she was ‘nervous’ about having two young children at home.
Sharing a photo in which she’s pushing a stroller, Jesinta wrote: ‘Pre-dinner waddle to the shops. Can’t believe we’ll be whipping out the double pram soon.
‘Would love any advice/tips from other mums with a one-year-old and newborn. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous’.
In the black and white photo, Jesinta beams as sunglasses shield her face, which appears makeup free, while pushing a pram and showing off her blossoming bump in a polka dot frock.

She recently detailed her struggle with body image and ‘self love’ after becoming a first-time mother.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, the stunner was candid as she revealed: ‘I probably don’t feel as confident as I used to feel in a swimsuit.’
Jesinta told the publication it has been a long journey ‘of self-love’ and ‘learning to love my new body’.

‘Your body goes through so many changes when you’re pregnant, I probably don’t feel as confident as I used to feel in a swimsuit,’ she added.
Jesinta previously revealed with her first pregnancy that she gained 18 kilograms, but said she was not bothered by it in an Instagram Q&A.
‘I was working too much, training too hard and not eating enough as I was always on the go,’ she said, prior to getting pregnant.
‘Since giving birth, I just look at my body in awe now. I cannot believe I grew and birthed a little human, it is truly amazing and I am so grateful,’ Jesinta added.
AFL star Buddy, 33, proposed to Jesinta in December 2014 after 14 months of dating. They tied the knot in November 2016.
