Geelong great Jimmy Bartel has gone public with his new girlfriend after finalising his divorce with Nadia Bartel earlier this year.

The 37-year-old made his romance with Amelia Sheppard “Instagram official”, posting a photo of him kissing the brunette beauty in front of the Sydney Harbour Bridge on his Story with the caption: “happy”.

The loved-up pair’s romance comes after Jimmy finalised his divorce with Nadia, 36, earlier this year following their split in 2018.

The former couple share two boys, Aston, six, and Henley, two.

The Brownlow medallist was formerly linked to Lauren Mand following his split from Nadia, before they ended their relationship in early 2021.

Nadia, who took time away from social media after the “white powder” scandal, recently hit back at an Instagram user who criticised her decision to keep her married surname.

“I want the same last name as my children, can I ask why you have such a problem with it?” Bartel responded.

“You don’t know me.

“Each to their own, and who knows what will happen for me in the future, but right now when they are so young it’s hard to have a different surname to them.”
