Jimmy Bartel is said to be in a 'long-term relationship' with socialite Lauren Mand following the recent breakdown of his five-year marriage to wife Nadia. 

And although the pair have yet to comment on the rumours, Daily Mail Australia can reveal that Lauren has actually been a 'WAG in the making' for years.

In November, Lauren turned heads at the Melbourne Cup Carnival's Oaks Day in a thigh-skimming red dress.

Despite being a little-known socialite at this stage, a male friend joked how the 'paparazzi' couldn't keep away from her as she arrived at Tabcorp's marquee. 

In another picture shared to social media, Lauren posed alongside her stylish girlfriends in the exclusive - and celebrity packed - Birdcage enclosure. 

Nadia, who is a regular fixture at the Melbourne Cup Carnival, skipped out on last year's festivities as she was giving birth to her second child with Jimmy.

Before she recently moving to London, Lauren was often seen at trendy bars and parties across Melbourne. 

Similar blogger Nadia, she also boasts connections in the world and has endorsed various brands before.

In 2018, Omnia Australia, a red carpet rental boutique, proudly shared a picture of Lauren modeling their Maia dress at a party. 

Local beauticians have also used Lauren for advertising on social media too.
