Once at the park, Tania met up with a friend, the pair chatting and laughing as she watched her sons play footy. 

She looked very relaxed indeed, ducking to avoid being hit by an errant football, and giggling with her pal.

The friend adds that the nurse is not after fame, and ‘not daunted’ by the attention that comes with being a WAG.  

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

Tania had triumphantly returned to social media just days earlier to debut her stunning transformation as a single woman, updating her fashion sense and paying tribute to friends who had supported her. 

While she’s changed her look, Tania has kept the last name ‘Buckley’ on her Instagram handle.
