The AFL WAG community is rallying behind Nadia Bartel following her recent split from husband Jimmy after five years of marriage.
Several wives and girlfriends of footy players, including Rebecca Judd and Renée Enright, have expressed their support for Nadia on social media, according to the Herald Sun.
‘An amazing wife, mother, businesswoman and friend, who is as caring, loving and loyal as they come. She deserves the world. I adore you, Nadia,’ wrote Rebecca, who is married to retired Carlton captain Chris Judd.

Renée, who is the wife of Geelong Cats legend Corey Enright, also wrote: ‘She’s the most incredible mother, sister, daughter and friend.
‘I could not be more proud of your strength, my beautiful Nonna… Such a dignified response in what is such an awful time. Love you.’
Brit Davis, the fiancée of Geelong’s Joel Selwood, added: ‘[You are] the most beautiful person inside and out.’

Tom Hawkins’ wife Emma echoed similar sentiments on Instagram that Nadia is ‘one of the most gorgeous people inside and out.’
Outside of the WAG community, Channel Nine presenter Lauren Phillips wrote: ‘[Nadia] deserves all the happiness and kindness in the world.’
Lauren had joined Nadia on her trip to Coachella in April, alongside a group of WAGs including Rebecca Judd and Marc Murphy’s wife Jessie Habermann.

The support for Nadia comes a week after the Bartels, who share two young children, confirmed their split after five years of marriage.
And on Friday, the Herald Sun claimed that Jimmy has already moved on with British-based Australian socialite Lauren Mand.
At the time, the newspaper alleged that Jimmy had only started seeing the blonde ‘recently’.
However, another report by the same publication has since claimed the pair have been in a ‘long-term relationship’.

It is believed the Bartels had separated ‘in early July and are not speaking to one another’. Nadia was said to be ‘blindsided’ by the split.
Speaking to the Herald Sun on Tuesday, Nadia said that it had been a ‘difficult month’ for her amid her split from Jimmy and the rumours surrounding Lauren.
‘Although I’m heartbroken, I don’t want to comment specifically on what’s been reported about Jim’s trip to the UK as I don’t think that is in anyone’s interests,’ she said.
‘My single focus now is to continue to protect, care and provide for my two beautiful boys as this is a personal matter. I am so thankful for my very supportive family and friends.’
