The public following of Lauren have left many believing that the rumoured couple are planning to go public with their relationship. 

His telling move comes less than a month after new details emerged about the footy player’s new love interest, with an Instagram post confirming Lauren had relocated from Melbourne to London less than three months before Jimmy flew to the British capital.

“She’s leaving me…London is so lucky to have you @laurenhmand,” a friend of Lauren’s captioned the post on March 30 from what appeared to be a farewell celebration at Melbourne’s Osborne Rooftop & Bar. 

While these details may seem irrelevant, knowing that Lauren had already relocated when Jimmy visited London adds more weight to Nadia’s comments about her husband’s holiday. 

“I don’t want to comment specifically on what’s been reported about Jim’s trip to the UK as I don’t think it’s in anyone’s interest,” Nadia told the Herald Sun

Some have even claimed the aspiring WAG has been trying to break into their social circles for years in the hope of elevating her status.
