“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.”

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 a 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 recent debut at the Australian Open.
