Nadia Bartel, Australian model and clothes designer and former wife of retired AFL footballer Jimmy Bartel, has recently shared new photos with her partner of two years, Peter Dugmore.

Taking to Instagram on July 10, 2024, Nadia posted a sweet photo with her boyfriend as they spent time together at Uluwata Beach in Bali.

The Dancing With The Stars star captioned the post, “Pure Bliss here. The beach was so beautiful today.”

The two first stepped out together at the 2024 Australian Open.

The mum of two and Henne co-founder later spoke with the Herald Sun about how the pair are ready to step out more. 

“I like to be private in some things but we’re so happy,’’ Bartel said.

“He’s a really good person and it’s been just over two years, we’re enjoying our time together. We just had a really nice break in Sydney and I’ve mainly just been here with family chilling by the pool.”

In March 2024, Bartel revealed to the Daily Mail that she thinks “he’s the one.” 

“I do think he is and I think that he’s got so many amazing attributes,” she reportedly told the publication.

“He’s just such a good person. I think the way he makes me feel…”

Peter Dugmore is a former footballer (he played semi-professional AFL) turned model. He is a gym equipment and fitness expert whose family is based in Sydney. He is currently hired by Giant Management, a modeling agency in Melbourne. 

How long have Nadia Bartel and Peter Dugmore been together?

Nadia and Peter are speculated to have been dating since January 2022 after they were spotted together in Melbourne. In December of that same year, they were spotted holidaying together in Byron Bay… the two were photographed kissing and cuddling.

Prior to their first public appearance at the Australian Open, the couple had been relatively secretive about their relationship, with only a few photos together posted to their social media.

The first “official” photograph we got of Nadia and Peter was in July 2023 while the two were travelling in Europe.

The photo posted only showed the side of his face and he was not tagged… by this time, fans already were speculating the two were official.

A few days later, Nadia shared another photo with Peter in an Instagram gallery posted about her European holiday.

On this occasion, Peter’s full face was shown and he was tagged in the image.

Over time, Nadia continued to post Peter more and more but the couple didn’t step out at any events together until their debut at the Australian Open.
