Jimmy surprised fans on Thursday by revealing he was no longer dating socialite Lauren Mand, 32, and was instead in a relationship with Amelia.

The footy star shared a photo to Instagram of himself kissing Amelia – known as Milly – in front of the iconic Sydney Harbour skyline. 

‘Happy,’ he simply captioned the post, adding a red love heart emoji.

While not much is known about Milly at this stage, she is believed to be 31 and previously worked for Queensland Rugby League.

According to her LinkedIn profile, she was the executive assistant to the managing director and chief operations officer of Queensland Rugby League from July 2019 to March 2021.

She has since returned to her home city of Melbourne after spending several years in Brisbane for her job.

Milly runs in the same celebrity WAG circles as Jimmy’s ex-wife, Nadia Bartel, and appears to be friends with Jessie Murphy. 

They have reportedly been together ever since he split from Lauren, whom he began dating after his separation from Nadia, 36, in 2019. 

Jimmy and Lauren had been the subject of break-up rumours last December after fans noticed it’d been months since the sports star had shared a photo with his girlfriend on social media.

Lauren responded to the rumours earlier in the year, changing her Instagram profile picture to a photo of herself and Jimmy. 

She has since changed it to a photo of just herself, and her last post on Instagram was in September last year for their first anniversary. 

Jimmy’s romance with Lauren first made headlines in 2019, following his very public split from his ex-wife Nadia.

In September 2019, Daily Mail Australia revealed that Lauren was planning to move back to Australia after spending several months living abroad in England. 

Jimmy and Nadia announced their split on August 15, 2019 – about two months after Nadia moved out of their marital home in Melbourne. 

They were married in February 2014 in a lavish ceremony on the Bellarine Peninsula, and share two sons, Aston, six, and Henley, three.
