Gary went ‘Instagram official’ with Maddie in April last year, but deleted the post one month later after receiving public backlash.

The black-and-white photo showed him smiling alongside Madi and his daughters, who he shares with his ex-wife Amie.

Gary and his wife Amie split in 2020 when he traveled with his Geelong teammates to Queensland to join the AFL Covid hub, while Amie stayed in Victoria with their children, Bella, three, and Sadie, 15 months.

The Rohans had suffered unimaginable grief in 2018 when Willow, Bella’s twin, died five hours after birth due to a defect causing babies to be born without parts of the brain.

Amie recently choked back tears while recounting the bittersweet arrival of twins Willow and Bella on the Pregnancy Uncut podcast.

She explained that early on in her pregnancy she and Gary were told Willow wouldn’t survive due to her condition.

‘The language used was “incompatible with life” and I still went, “What needs to be done?” and the lady was like, “No, no, no, your baby will pass away,”‘ she said.

‘I loved being pregnant and it was daunting to not know what was on the other side.’

Amie went on to have a C-section and said the birth of her twins was ‘one of the most heartbreakingly beautiful moments of my life’.

‘It was beautiful, one of the most heartbreakingly beautiful moments of my life, to have so much joy and sorrow at the same time, it was beautiful, beautiful… because we had the support of an entire medical team behind us trying to make it as special as it could be,’ she explained.

‘Willow was just there and so serene… They both got put on my chest and I wanted that moment to last forever… it was like I was having an out-of-body experience.’

The pair had been married for four years prior to their break-up, with Amie revealing in April last year the split was more difficult than losing their daughter.

‘The days after my marriage breakdown were some of the hardest days of my life, harder than when we lost Willow,’ she told the Move Your Mind podcast.

While Gary was in the AFL hub, he hooked up with Madi after his marriage broke down – just months after Sadie was born.

Madi had been flown cross-country to use her physio skills to help Geelong Cats legend Gary Ablett Jr see out his final season.

In May, Amie confirmed she has found love again.

Speaking to The Herald Sun, the former WAG revealed she has a ‘new man’ who she met in February, but wants to keep the romance private.

‘It’s really nice but keeping it to myself, I’ve got to have one piece of my life that isn’t for everyone else,’ she told the publication.

Amie added that the new romance has revived her sense of self worth after her divorce.

‘It’s made me realize I’m normal and I’m not a broken soul that’s not loveable. It’s exciting’ she said.

It comes after Amie denied rumors that she was dating Riley Carter in February.
