Former WAG Danielle Hardwick Launches New Initiative to Support Indigenous Artists

Former WAG Danielle Hardwick reveals her stunning new move… months after her AFL supercoach husband Damien left her to be with a younger club staff

Her husband Damien Hardwick, the Richmond Tigers coach, has moved on with a younger woman after the couple split last year.

But Danielle Hardwick’s life is also moving forward, with the former WAG launching a new initiative to help Indigenous artists, according to the Herald Sun on Wednesday.

And in a nod to her past with the three-time premiership-winning AFL coach, she has launched Mrs. Hardwick + Co.

“I am developing a platform mshardwickco, starting on Instagram, to publicize and promote original artwork by young aspiring artists, some indigenous and current established artists,” Hardwick told the paper.

She is also an ambassador for the Need A Tutor initiative.

“Both efforts are based on my personal life philosophies of integrity, dignity and using resources to have a voice where it matters most.”

Meanwhile, her AFL supercoach ex went public in March with his new romance.

Damien shocked the sports world in December with the news that he was separated from his wife and mother of his three children Danielle, whom he often referred to in the media as ‘Mrs Hardwick’.

Hardwick, 48, is now in a relationship with Tigers sales representative Alexandra Crow, which reportedly started during the club’s Queensland quarantine bubble during the 2020 season.

Richmond CEO Brendon Gale said the split from 3AW Hardwick was “intensely personal and private and sensitive.”

“I think we’re all very sad to see the end of a 30-year relationship – I think that’s the natural reaction. But these things happen, no matter how sad they are,” he said.

Damien has been and has remained a very, very good coach for our football club.

“He’s in a relationship with someone who happens to be a club employee – and it happens.

“We have policies and guidelines that help manage that – and at the end of the day we were satisfied that everything was in place, the course of action was being followed.”
