"She can retire at 15 if she wants to," Jacenko, who also runs a PR company said.
Pixie’s Bows, her other company is also successful, and Kim and Khloe Kardashian’s daughters North West and True have been spotted wearing their accessories.
Pixie’s R4-million car
In August 2021, Jacenko made headlines when she rewarded Pixie’s hard work with a brand new Mercedes-Benz GL worth over R4 million.
Jacenko uses the vehicle to drive Pixie and her younger brother Hunter to school. The mum said her daughter dreams of owning a beach house and a Lamborghini Urus.
Jacenko has also started a business for seven-year-old Hunter.
“The important lesson is to teach her to invest well and not squander her money. As a mother, everything I do is for the children, both Pixie and Hunter,” Jacenko said.
The mum juggles between running her PR firm and working for her children’s companies.
