Last year, retired Carlton great Jaryd Cachia confirmed he’d split with his wife Sophie.

Sophie is now in a relationship with women’s basketball star Maddie Garrick, while Jaryd debuted his new romance with WAFL player Harriet Cordner at the W Awards in Melbourne on Tuesday night. 

And it appears there’s no hard feelings between the quartet, with Sophie even sharing a tribute to Jaryd and Harriet’s red carpet debut on her Instagram.

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Jaryd, Sophie and Harriet for comment. 

In a candid interview with the No Filter podcast in July 2020, Sophie explained the status of her relationship with Jaryd, which ended before she began dating women.

‘I had a beautiful man in my life, I still do. He’s an incredible father and an incredible friend to me but why can’t women seek more?’ she said.

‘That married life I realised wasn’t what I wanted. And it wasn’t that I realised “oh I like women now, I’m going to leave my marriage”, it wasn’t that. I realised I wanted more.’

Sophie briefly dated Matilda’s star Alanna Kennedy after meeting through work in 2019. 

‘She was overseas for the first five to six months. We didn’t dive straight into a relationship but we definitely connected straight away,’ she said.  

The couple amicably split in early 2020 and Sophie is now in a happy relationship with Maddie.
