Clad in activewear, Nadia appeared decidedly glum as she pushed nine-month-old Henley in his stroller while Aston, three, stood on a booster step. 

Her wedding ring was noticeably absent, and it’s believed she stopped wearing it several weeks ago as her marriage collapsed. 

The beauty blogger was on a photo shoot in Queensland last week when the split was announced, but has since returned to her multi-million dollar marital home. 

The estranged couple are believed to still be living under the same roof.

Both Jimmy and Nadia are yet to reveal what caused their marriage breakdown.

While appearing on 3AW‘s pre-match AFL coverage on Saturday, Jimmy insisted it was a ‘private matter’ before acknowledging the situation was ‘not great’.

He refused to go into any further detail about the split, adding: ‘I am probably not going to provide any commentary on it.

‘I know I am in the public eye and people are interested, but it is a private matter and I ask for a bit of respect because obviously Nadia and the boys [are] involved.’

However, he has since hinted at his personal heartbreak by ‘liking’ emotional memes on Instagram. 

One post he liked read: ‘No person or job is worth your mental health.’  

A second post read: ‘Some days are just s**t. And that’s okay! Because tomorrow is a brand new day with the chance to start / begin / try again. Hang in there.’

Meanwhile, Nadia also took to Instagram over the weekend to address speculation about her marriage split. 

On Friday, an anonymous user made shocking and baseless claims about the Bartels’ relationship, prompting Nadia to defend herself in the comments section. 

The Instagram troll had claimed that Nadia might want to avoid flying with budget airline Jetstar in case she bumps into Jimmy’s rumoured new girlfriend.

They also made other false allegations about the state of the former couple’s marriage before their recent separation.

Nadia’s supporters flocked to her defence, with one woman writing: ‘What a cold-hearted, unnecessary and insensitive thing to say… Shame on you.’

But it was a cruel remark about Nadia not having a ‘real job’ that prompted the fashion blogger to step in and address her troll directly.

She replied: ‘Try writing from a real account. Don’t hide. I have numerous real jobs.’
