TAYLA DAMIR

Tayla, 24, is dating 28-year-old Richmond star Nathan Broad.  

Despite Tayla’s rocky road to love after a doomed romance with fellow Love Island winner Grant Crapp, she’s now been happily dating Nathan for well over a year. 

The pair confirmed their romance early last year after months of rumours.

In recent weeks, the pair have been the subject of engagement rumours, and in April Tayla did little to dispel the talk. 

She shared a tribute to Nathan on Instagram and tellingly wrote: ‘Happy birthday to my favourite human. Can’t wait to grow old and wrinkled with you.’ 

In February, Tayla took a public swipe at her ex Grant, three years after their controversial split.

Speaking to the Shameless podcast, she said she felt more embarrassed than heartbroken when she discovered the 25-year-old electrician had a ‘secret girlfriend’ just days after winning Love Island as a couple.

‘In the nicest way possible, that wasn’t heartbreak to me, that was more embarrassment,’ the model said.

‘That was more, “Okay, this situation sucks and I fell for this.”‘

MIA FEVOLA 

She's a catch! Mia Fevola, the 21-year-old stepdaughter of AFL great Brendan Fevola, is dating Western Bulldogs player Jamarra Ugle-Hagan, 18

Mia Fevola, the 21-year-old stepdaughter of AFL great Brendan Fevola, is dating Western Bulldogs player Jamarra Ugle-Hagan, 18.

She was previously in a long-term relationship with Richmond premiership player Daniel Rioli, but they split in February last year.

Earlier this week, Brendan spoke about Mia and Jamarra’s romance on Triple M Footy.

‘He does the dishes, he washes, he does everything, he’s amazing,’ the Carlton legend, 40, said.

He added: ‘He’s got some strings to his bow, I’ve got to give it to him. Good kid.’

His comments came after Mia revealed the misogynistic abuse she faces from Instagram trolls on a daily basis.

Mia, who debuted her relationship with Jamarra in March, shared examples of the vile comments on Instagram Stories last month.

She said she was ‘sick of staying silent’, arguing that doing so ‘normalised’ bullying. 

'He does the dishes, he washes, he does everything, he's amazing,' the Carlton legend, 40, said on air

‘Every single day I wake up to messages like this. I dread checking my phone because I know what messages and comments await me,’ she said, referring to the abuse she gets for dating two footy players.

‘I now don’t check my phone in the morning because whenever I do, it ruins my day. It’s been months of this. I’m so sick of staying silent and hoping that it will just eventually die off.’

Mia urged the trolls to be ‘quiet’ if they have nothing positive to say.

‘Everything and more,’ she captioned the post, adding a love heart and infinity symbol.

‘Love you,’ Daniel wrote underneath. 

Mia confirmed her split from Daniel in February last year after two years of dating.

‘Daniel and I are no longer together; however, we still love and care for each other very much and remain the best of friends,’ she wrote on Instagram at the time.

Daniel also addressed the split on his own Instagram account.

‘Hey guys, I know everyone is wondering what’s going on with Mia and myself and I hate to say this but we are no longer together,’ he wrote.

Last month, Madi was spotted planting a kiss on Cat champ Gary at the MCG after his 150th game.

Rohan had been locked away in the AFL hub last year when he reportedly hooked up with Bennett after his marriage to wife Amie broke down. 

Bennett had been flown cross-country to use her physio skills to help ageing Cats legend Gary Ablett Jnr see out his final season.

Bennett had been working as a physio at BodyLab Health and moonlighted as a Cats trainer and physio.

The Cats had been in impressive form despite the trying conditions seeing them shuffled across the country and kept in virtual isolation.

Rohan’s estranged wife Amie had given birth to the couple’s third child Sadie Rose in March that year.
