The Bachelor's Alex Nation Has Broken Her Silence
According to reports, she split from The Bachelor’s Richie Strahan six months ago.
On Wednesday, Alex Nation broke her silence on Instagram, discussing her challenges as a young mother.
Sharing a throwback photo of herself with son Elijah, now six, the Melbourne-based model wrote about ‘navigating’ through parenthood.
'Throwback to when I was 19, trying to navigate my way through parenthood and being a new mum,' she captioned the picture.
"These times were extremely challenging, however learning and growing with my little man is simply everything."
Alex’s friends were quick to share kind words with one person describing her as "strong, selfless, and beautiful".
It comes after fans expressed their frustration the 2016 Bachelor couple had refused to confirm or deny persistent breakup rumours.
"Is it such a big deal if you @alexandranation & richie_strahan have split up?! Can you not just confirm or deny?" One fan wrote on Instagram.
"I understand that you are normal people and have feelings etc but when you sign up for a show to fall 'in love' on national TV for people to watch then you're going to get questions and people who are interested and curious."
Neither has commented about the split but, at least according to New Idea, the couple broke up due to the 'neglect' Alex felt from Richie after he went back on his promise to move to Melbourne for her.
