She carried her things in a black handbag and added a pair of casual sneakers.

Nadia has a deep golden brown, and her long brown hair is left loose.

The ex-wife of retired Geelong star Jimmy Bartel looked a little distracted as she glanced nervously at her iPhone.

Nadia last week was forced to defend herself after trolls criticized her for posting photos of her ‘mummy belly’ on Instagram.

She raised an eyebrow after she shared a video of her smooth midsection, which she followed with a ‘realistic’ photo of her tummy skin puckering up as she sat down.

‘My body today that has brought two boys. Don’t forget that you always see the angle that people want you to see online, so be kind to yourself,” she wrote in the caption.

Unfortunately, Nadia’s message of empowerment fell through, with some followers accusing her of exaggerating her ‘flaws’ to appear more acceptable.

He returned to Instagram last Monday to defend himself from naysayers.

‘I get a lot of comments and messages… mostly a lot of them are positive, but some of them think I’m just posting that to try to stay relevant, and that I’m not sending the right message. post it,’ he said in the video recorded in his car.

“I didn’t think much of it, to be honest. It’s basically just because I get a lot of messages from people who think that I look super fit and my tummy is really toned and flat, but the truth is it’s the same as most other moms out there.’

“Once you have a few babies, you have sagging skin on your belly. It doesn’t matter how much you exercise,” added Nadia.

He reminded fans that not everything they see on social media is reality.

“We always post our best angles and it’s just human nature… you want to show yourself looking your best,” she said.

‘But if you really look at most of the people you follow online every day, you’ll see that they don’t look perfect.

‘And everyone goes through the same thing, basically.’

Nadia insists that even Instagram’s most famous models have insecurities about their appearance – including herself.

‘It doesn’t matter who you are. Try not to compare yourself to others. I know it’s very difficult and I’m guilty of it too,” he said.

He concluded by sharing an uplifting message about body positivity.

‘Know that you are doing what’s best for yourself, for your situation, for your family. You create a very beautiful and positive body image, and you just know that every day you are taking small steps to make yourself happy,” she said.

Nadia shares sons Aston, six, and Henley, three, with ex-husband Jimmy, from whom she split in 2019 after five years of marriage.
