Nathan Buckley’s glamorous new girlfriend Alex Pike reveals how old she REALLY is… as the mother of three admits she ‘used to be ashamed’ of it
Famed AFL coach Nathan Buckley’s new girlfriend Alex Pike has been turning heads with her glamorous looks.
And fans of the Collingwood great would be surprised to learn the stunning brunette is a mother of three and accomplished cosmetic nurse who runs her own clinic.
Although she doesn’t appear a day over 25, Alex revealed on a podcast in March that she’s actually ‘close to 44’.

‘I’ve never been more empowered in my life and I’m close to 44,’ she said on the Curious Conversations podcast.
‘I used to hide my age and be very ashamed because there’s such a stigma for women.’
Alex added: ‘I hate when people say, “You’re really hot for a mum.” It’s like, really? Do I have to be attractive for a mum? Can’t I just be attractive?
‘I don’t want to be good for my age. I want to be good.’

The former model said she’s had a little help with maintaining her youthful visage.
Alex first dabbled with anti-wrinkle injections at the age of 23 after a surgeon urged her to try Botox.
‘I ended up having the treatment – just my frown line,’ she admitted.
‘And when it started to take effect, I could not believe the difference and I then started getting more modelling [jobs] because I was looking super fresh.’

She also drinks four litres of water a day, downing three litres while she’s working at her clinic and then another litre at home in the evening.
Alex and Magpies coach Nathan, 48, were pictured together for the very first time on Wednesday.
The romance between the new couple is said to be ‘effortless’.
‘They are happy. It’s all good. It’s just very easy and comfortable really. They have a genuine connection,’ a friend of the couple told the Herald Sun last week.

The source added that Alex isn’t after fame, and isn’t ‘daunted’ by the attention that comes with being a WAG either.
‘They are just into normal stuff, yoga, natural health, keeping fit and staying positive,’ the pal said.
Alex is a mother of three based in South Yarra, just outside Melbourne’s CBD.
The pair’s relationship emerged just weeks after the champion midfielder announced his split from his wife of 18 years, Tania Minnici, last December.
