Michael’s girlfriend Pip Edwards added a number of broken heart emojis to the emotional post. 

Former wife Kyly Clarke also shared a picture of the pet dogs: ‘Been a tuff day today. My little furry buddy departed this family,’ she wrote.  

‘We will miss you Jed, thanks for the good times. Rest In Peace Jerry John.’

It comes after Michael’s relationship with P.E Nation founder Pip Edwards continues to go from strength-to-strength.   

On Saturday, the couple looked more loved-up than ever during a stroll around Vaucluse in Sydney. 

Posting to her Instagram account, Pip shared a picture of herself cosying up to her beau by the water.

It comes as former Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke and Pip’s relationship continues to go from strength-to-strength. 

Last month, the couple embarked on their first family holiday together with their children from previous marriages, after months of keeping their romance a secret. 

The pair began dating sometime in late 2019, following Michael’s split from his wife-of-seven-years, Kyly.

Their relationship didn’t become public knowledge, however, until after the Clarkes announced their separation on February 12.
