Nadia Bartel spends the weekend helping her sons hunt for Pokémon cards

Nadia Bartel spends the weekend helping her sons hunt for Pokémon cards – as they pose together on Instagram for the first time since her white powder scandal


Nadia Bartel has proven just how far she’s prepared to go when it comes to encouraging her children’s hobbies.  

Posting to Instagram on Sunday, the ex-WAG, 36, revealed to her followers that she’d spent the past day helping her sons Henley, three, and Aston, five, find new Pokémon cards to purchase. 

There are over 800 Pokémon trading cards currently in circulation, the rarest of which can retail for up to $50,000. 

Gotta catch ’em all! Nadia Bartel, 36, shared this photo of herself posing with sons Henley, three, (right), and Aston, five (center) on Sunday after spending the last day helping them find new Pokémon cards to purchase 

Uploading a photo of herself posing in the car with Henley and Aston, Nadia wrote: ‘Yesterday with my minis on the hunt for the Pokémon cards, thanks for all your messages (who knew they were so hard to find?!)’   

‘After going to 5 newsagencies all sold out, but Big W for the win,’ she added.  

Nadia went makeup-free for the low-key outing, and covered up in a blue sweater.  

World's greatest mum! Nadia wrote: 'Yesterday with my minis on the hunt for the Pokémon cards, thanks for all your messages (who knew they were so hard to find?!)'

It was the first time Nadia had shared a photo with her children on Instagram since her white powder scandal on September 3. 

Her entire world fell apart two months ago when she was caught breaking Melbourne’s Covid lockdown to attend an illegal party with several friends.

Caught on camera: The video showed Nadia snorting a line of white powder off a $1.50 Kmart plate. She and three other women were each fined $5,452 after footage of the party was accidentally posted on Instagram by Ellie

Damning footage from the gathering, which her friend and business partner Ellie Pearson posted online by mistake, showed her snorting a line of white powder off a $1.50 Kmart plate.

While she wasn’t charged with drug offences because police couldn’t prove what she was snorting, the video nonetheless caused irreparable damage to her brand and she was dropped by major sponsors.  

Nadia shares Henley and Aston with her ex-husband, footy star Jimmy Bartel.  

Apology: Just 24 hours after the video leaked, Nadia issued a grovelling apology on Instagram. 'I have let you all down by my actions. I take full responsibility and I am committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure I make better choices in future,' she wrote in an Instagram post
