Parramatta Eels player Blake, 30, announced his split from the glamorous heiress, 26, in February, just months after announcing their engagement. 

He proposed to Dominique, granddaughter of Morco Fresh fruit and vegetable patriarch and multimillionaire Nick Moraitis, in May last year. 

The couple became an item in January 2019, going public at the Dally M Awards in October of that year where Dominique had all eyes on her in a glittery low-cut ensemble.

The bombshell news of the shock separation was kept secret although rumours started circulating when pictures of the athlete disappeared from Dominique’s Instagram page late last year. 

Blake, who converted to Islam in 2013, also has two children, Harlo and London, with his former partner Bianca Menniti. 

Shortly after the split, he moved in with his cousin and mentor, boxer Anthony Mundine.

Before giving birth, Dominique threw a lavish baby shower with her friends and family. 

She shared pictures of a white cake, floral arrangements and a toy Mercedes with the number plate 740 from the event.

‘A day for my mini. Blessed with the best,’ Ms Moraitis wrote alongside the pictures.
