Nadia Bartel’s classy message of support for ex-husband Jimmy as their sons get behind his old club Geelong in AFL Grand Final showdown against the Sydney Swans

They split in acrimonious circumstances in August 2019.

But things seem to have improved for one-time AFL glamour couple Nadia and Jimmy Bartel in the three years since their separation. 

Nadia, 37, showed her support for her ex-husband on Grand Final day on Saturday as she settled in to watch the Geelong vs Sydney game with their sons.

She posted photos to Instagram of their boys Aston and Henley getting ‘pumped up’ for the showdown at the MCG between the Swans and the Cats.

Jimmy played 305 games for Geelong from 2002 to 2016, and was part of Channel Seven’s commentary team for Saturday’s match.

While she didn’t mention Jimmy in her posts, her vocal support for her ex-husband’s old club suggests the Bartels’ once-frosty relationship may be starting to improve.

Jimmy and Nadia tied the knot in 2014, after meeting at the Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix in 2008 and getting engaged in 2012.

The couple announced their separation in August 2019.

At the time, Nadia was said to have been ‘blindsided’ by the split.

Jimmy soon moved on with Melbourne socialite Lauren Mand, but their relationship didn’t last. He is now dating a woman named Amelia Shepperd.

The Bartels share custody of their sons Aston and Henley.
