It’s been less than a month since she debuted her romance with outgoing Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley.

And it looks like Alex Pike, 44, has already been welcomed into the illustrious social circle of Australia’s sporting WAGs.

Fans saw a telltale sign that the cosmetic nurse joined the exclusive clique on Wednesday, after she posed a short video of herself showing off a new set of long hair extensions.

The video garnered an avalanche of praise from Alex’s fans, but one particular comment stood out: a message from former Melbourne WAG Nadia Bartel.

Nadia, who was stripped of her WAG title in 2019 after splitting from AFL star husband Jimmy Bartel, showed her approval of Alex’s post by responding: ‘Ooh hot!!’

Alex went on to “like” Nadia’s comment — an honor usually reserved for those she considers friends.

Indeed, like Nadia, the mother of three has all the hallmarks of a full-fledged WAG, despite only earning the title late last month.

Aside from her great looks and sense of glamour, the brunette is also no stranger to the Australian celebrity circuit.

In October, Alex shared a photo of herself with one of her most high-profile clients: PE Nation founder Pip Edwards.

Four months later, she provided cosmetic services to none other than Married At First Sight’s KC Osborne and posted a photo of the couple on social media.

Alex and Nathan, who have known each other since at least the beginning of the year, were photographed together for the first time last month.

The romance between the new couple is said to be ‘effortless’.

‘They are happy. It’s all right. It’s just really easy and comfortable actually. They have a real connection,” a friend of the couple told the Herald Sun.

The source added that Alex is not after fame, nor is he “discouraged” by the attention that comes with being a WAG.

“They just like normal things, yoga, natural health, staying fit and staying positive,” they said.

Alex is a mother of three, based in South Yarra, just outside Melbourne’s CBD, but also has a home in Albury.

The couple’s relationship blossomed just weeks after the champion midfielder announced his divorce from his 18-year-old wife, Tania Minnici, last December.
