It comes after Nadia and Jimmy, who welcomed their second child Henley in October last year, quietly unfollowed each other on Instagram in recent weeks.

They also haven’t been pictured together on social media since June.

Furthermore, fans have noticed that Nadia’s diamond wedding ring has been conspicuously absent from her finger since early July.
