 It comes after Alex and Collingwood Magpies coach Nathan, 48, were pictured together for the very first time on Wednesday.

The romance between the new couple is said to be ‘effortless’.

 ‘They are happy. It’s all good. It’s just very easy and comfortable really. They have a genuine connection,’ a friend of the couple told the Herald Sun last week.

The source added that Alex isn’t after fame, and isn’t ‘daunted’ by the attention that comes with being a WAG either.

‘They are just into normal stuff, yoga, natural health, keeping fit and staying positive,’ the pal said.

 On December 4, the Buckleys confirmed their long-rumoured separation in a statement posted on social media. 

‘It has been a tough and challenging year for every family and for ours included,’ Nathan and Tania said.

‘It is with the utmost of love and respect for each other and a true commitment to our sons, that we made a decision to separate in January [2020]. We remain dedicated parents and in the interests of our boys, we ask for our family to be given the privacy that is needed.

‘We thank everyone in advance for understanding our request and for the unconditional love and support we have received throughout our marriage.’
