Celebrity accountant Anthony Bell has found love with an ex-cricket WAG.
Speaking exclusively to the Daily Mail, Sydney-based Bell and Annika Martyn confirmed they were dating after months of speculation.
The couple attended Derby Day in Melbourne in their first public appearance together.
‘We’ve been running around together for a few months…but [Derby Day] is our first public outing. How good, we picked a nice quiet event,’ said Bell.
‘We’ve known each other for years. We met through friends. Then we reconnected around June this year.’

Annika wore a Dolce and Gabbana vintage corset dress to the event, saying she’s had her eye on the design for a while.
The couple told Daily Mail they often spend time together between Noosa (where Anthony’s daughter’s live) and Sydney.
And while they don’t technically live together, Annika said they ‘have clothes in cupboards’ at each other’s places.

When the topic of marriage arose, Anthony laughed, before saying ‘We’re going great so we’re not ruling anything out.’
Rumours about the new couple’s relationship sparked after Annika, who is the ex-wife of retired cricketer Damien Martyn, shared several snaps enjoying time on Bell’s superyacht in the south of France.
‘I’m in the South of France, where every twisty road seems to lead to a vineyard, and the locals have a knack for turning croissants into works of art,’ she captioned one photo.

‘Welcome to the land of baguettes, berets… The South of France will forever hold a special place in my heart and my belly.’
She’s joined by friend Tonia Taylor, niece of media identity Alan Jones.
The Daily Telegraph reported that when they attempted to contact Bell, he ‘attempted to pour cold water on suggestions he and Martyn were an item’.
According to her LinkedIn profile, Annika is the Director at Goop Gang, a weight loss program for women.

She was married to former cricket star Damien for five years after tying the knot in 2006. The ex-couple split in 2011.
As for Bell, the accountant was previously married to Getaway star Kelly Landry, who confirmed in December last year she and Bell were divorcing after 10 years of marriage.
The exes were previously believed to be working on their marriage after their bitter public break-up led to a court hearing in May 2017.
In February 2018, The Daily Telegraph reported they were attending ‘parenting workshops’ together in a bid to get back on track.
But in 2019, they reportedly split again.
A source said at the time Landry was living at the marital home in Noosa with their children during the week, while Bell flew up on weekends.
Landry and Bell share two daughters, Charlize, 11, and Thea, eight, while Annika has two children, a three-year-old and a 16-year-old.
It comes after the Daily Telegraph reported last month that Bell’s longtime pal and ex-cricketer Michael Clarke and Jade Yarbrough were set to venture to France for a European getaway. Pictured: Bell (left) and Clarke (right)
