According to The Herald Sun, Tania was actually helping a close friend find the perfect design and look for her upcoming wedding.

Tania was said to be giving style advice to long-time friend and Thrive PR founder Leilani Abels. 

The pair met with Melbourne fashion designer Jason Grech during their search for the perfect bridal show-stopper.

Meanwhile, Tania appears to be putting her previous marriage behind her.

The blonde split from the Collingwood coach in January 2020, but did not confirm their breakup until December 2020. 

After more than a year of being separated, the former WAG made the decision earlier this month to remove Nathan from her Instagram profile. 

Tania had triumphantly returned to social media just days earlier to debut her stunning transformation as a single woman.

On February 3, her Instagram account was changed from a public to private page, with the profile photo of the former couple in happier times exchanged for a simple grey tile.

Tania has kept the last name ‘Buckley’ on her Instagram handle, but it’s believed she may have also set up another private account under a different username. 

The post of February 1 marked the first time Tania had shared anything to social media since confirming her split with Nathan in December.

Tania, who looked glamorous in her spaghetti strap crop top and fitted trousers, beamed as she posed with her friend Jason Grech, a fashion designer.

‘Adversity sets you up for amazing things. This human stands out for being the amazing rock any girl could ask for,’ she wrote, paying tribute to Jason.

In the selfie, Tania’s left hand was partially covered, but appeared to show her still wearing a gold band on her ring finger.

Once known for their show-stopping red carpet appearances and seemingly rock-solid marriage, the pair shocked fans late last year when they confirmed they’d secretly parted ways after 18 years of marriage.

The former AFL golden couple quietly separated in January 2020, but only made the news public via a statement on Tania’s Instagram page in December. 

The exes are now co-parenting their two sons, Ayce, 12, and Jett, 14.   

After the Magpies crashed out of the AFL finals in Queensland in October, Nathan, 48, moved out of the family home when he returned to Melbourne.

He is reportedly staying at an apartment in South Yarra, which is owned by his friend Paul Roberts, a TLA sports executive.
