Nathan Buckley’s estranged wife Tania reveals her stunning makeover in first post since announcing her split from the AFL coach – and just days after he was linked to cosmetic nurse Alex Pike
There’s been social media silence from AFL star Nathan Buckley’s estranged wife Tania since the pair confirmed their split in December.
But the former WAG made a triumphant return to Instagram on Monday.
In her first post since announcing her single status, Tania showed off her stunning makeover in a stylish red outfit.

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.
Despite more than a year passing since her split from the Collingwood star, Tania has kept the last name ‘Buckley’ on her Instagram account.
Her profile picture is still a red carpet photo of the former couple in happier times.

Confirmed: In a statement on Instagram in December, the Buckleys confirmed they’d broken up in January 2020 and were co-parenting their sons, Ayce, 12 and Jett, 14
Once known for their show-stopping red carpet appearances and seemingly rock-solid marriage, the pair shocked fans last year when they confirmed they’d secretly parted 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 pair have since been 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.
