PR Maven Roxy Jacenko is making sure her kids know nothing but luxury.
The mother-of-two shocked fans on Monday night when she casually confessed to buying her children a Mercedes-Benz GLS.

Parked before a Sydney mega mansion and adorned with a purple bow, Jacenko shared a picture of her kids’ new wheels with the caption “A special gift for two special little people delivered today @pixiecurtis @huntercurtis14…”
“7 seats to accommodate the Curtis zoo,” she added.
Pixie — who is seven years from even being eligible for her learner’s license — shared an excited snap of her new Mercedes, writing: “This was such a surprise!!”.
“Mum told us to come to the front of the house – we thought there was a trampoline delivery – it was a new car,” she wrote.
“We told her we needed 7 seats we didn’t think she would actually organise it!!.”
Jacenko’s now Instagram-famous daughter Pixie even gave followers a virtual tour of the luxury car that comes with a $147,100 price tag for the baseline model or $267,100 for all the trimmings.

But people were quick to slam not just Jacenko but her nine-year-old daughter as well, saying the purchase should not be considered “essential” shopping during Sydney’s harsh lockdown.
Others criticised giving a luxury car to children that can’t even drive it.
“Pixie wants 7 seats. Pixie gets 7 seats. Why not get a Kia Carnival?” one person commented under Pixie’s post.
“Does it come with a driver to take you around after covid?” another quipped.
“Just a little lockdown gift for the kids. Something small and cute,” an Instagram user wrote.
Actor Ryan Johnson even questioned Jacenko’s post, writing “A car company gave you a car to give your kids?”.Internet Explorer Channel Network
