He shared a photo of homemade icing cupcakes with the words ‘welcome home’ on them.
Ms. Taylor-Hawkins seemed to have taken Sheppard by surprise after returning to Perth from the Gold Coast, where the Eagles defeated the Adelaide Football Club on Saturday.
A number of Sheppard’s teammates have also started following Ms. Taylor-Hawkins on Instagram, suggesting the couple may be romantically involved.
Tom Barrass, Francis Watson, Jeremy McGovern and the West Coast Eagles official Instagram page all follow the brunette.
Some romantic photos with Sheppard’s ex-girlfriend are still on the AFL star’s Instagram page.
Sheppard and Biggs dated for 18 months and broke up after a seemingly romantic European holiday during the October 2019 AFL break.
Ms. Taylor-Hawkins has a modest online presence, with a private Instagram account and less than 1,000 followers, unlike many AFL WAGs with a large fan base.

The mysterious brunette grew up in Margaret River and moved to Perth after winning a place on the University of Western Australia’s Rural Pathway program.
She achieved an impressive ATAR of 96 and was admitted to study medicine in 2012.
“I was pretty excited, but a little surprised because my ATAR score was right on the border,” she told the Margaret River Mail.
“The cut-off is usually 98, so this is a good way to give rural students a chance and bring doctors back to rural areas,” said Taylor-Hawkins.

At the time, the medical student said she wanted to work with children or in remote Aboriginal communities.
Sheppard’s new relationship comes after he was identified as an elite AFL defender.
According to Champion Data stats, the Eagles star only conceded two goals this season in five direct games.
The AFL season continues after teams from Victoria were forced to evacuate Melbourne during the second wave of coronaviurs cases.
All ten Victorian teams have left Melbourne for at least 32 days and reside in quarantine bubbles between states.
