Preparations for the party began in the early hours on Sunday, with Nadia enlisting the help of Poppies For Grace, to install a multi-coloured balloon archway.

A short clip posted to Instagram Stories by a friend of the AFL WAG, saw a large dining table laid out with an incredible gourmet spread from Rocco’s Delicatessen.

Guests were treated to sliders, sourdough bread, antipasto delights, as well as healthy fruit slices and crudités.

At the time of their split, it was widely reported that Jimmy and Lauren were in a ‘long-term relationship’ that Nadia had discovered through ‘text messages’. 

Nadia left her shared home with Jimmy in mid-June, and moved in with her parents ‘permanently’ in July. 

It’s believed the split had been a long time coming, with a neighbour saying the Bartels had rarely been seen together over the past year. 

Nadia told the Herald Sun in August that ‘it’s been a very difficult month for me and the boys. My single focus now is to continue to protect, care and provide for my two beautiful boys as this is a personal matter.’
