Thanks for the memories? Stone-faced Jimmy Bartel takes his dog for a walk past the house he shared with ex-wife Nadia during Melbourne’s fourth lockdown

Almost two years have passed since he ended his five-year marriage with his wife Nadia.

And former AFL star Jimmy Bartel took a literal trip down memory lane Monday as he strolled past the matrimonial home the former couple shared.

Geelong, 37, looked quite gritty as he took his dog for a walk in Melbourne during the city’s fourth lockdown.

Dressed in a black tracksuit and matching face mask, the father-of-two gazed thoughtfully into the distance as he wandered the sidewalk, perhaps lost in thought about his former life as a married man.

He completed his lockdown look with a pair of gray sneakers, white crew socks and acetate sunglasses hanging from his collar.

Jimmy listened to music through headphones as he revisited his old stomping grounds, and at one point he stared intently at his phone.

Jimmy and Nadia sold their marital home for $4 million last year.

Once considered a golden footy couple, the Bartels married in a lavish ceremony on the Bellarine Peninsula in February 2014, before welcoming two children together.

The couple, who share custody of sons Aston, five, and Henley, two, announced their separation in August 2019 but are believed to have split up two months earlier.

The Brownlow Medal winner then went public with new girlfriend Lauren Mand, a Melbourne socialite and office worker.

Nadia was linked with personal trainer Nathan Brodie last year, but it’s unclear if they’re still together.

In late April, Nadia shared a cryptic Instagram post about personal growth and “forgetting the past.”

She posted an inspiring quote, which read: ‘Think less about the past and future, because your life only happens in the present.’

“The past has already happened. The future has not happened yet. All we have is the present,” it continued.
