This Bach fave won’t let her single mum status get in the way of love…

TV’s most eligible man might be taking his sweet time coming to terms with the fact that Alex Nation is a two-for-one package, thanks to her adorable five-year-old son Elijah – but the Victorian venue manager says that Richie Strahan, 31, needn’t worry about winning either of them over, because they are both massive fans.

‘I think Rich is amazing, and Elijah watched the first episode and thought he was really cool – he loved that he rides motorbikes and flew a helicopter,’ admits Alex, 24, who has been co-parenting Elijah with her ex-husband since their divorce two years ago.

And while she understands that instant fatherhood isn’t a decision to be taken lightly, Alex is confident that Richie is up for the job.

‘He possesses qualities that would make him a fantastic role model for Elijah; it’s just timing and whether he would be ready at this stage,’ she says.

But if Richie’s wants kids of his own anytime soon, he may need to look elsewhere.

‘I’m keen to have more kids down the track,’ tells Alex. ‘But I’m definitely not ready yet… Having a child at a young age, I had to put my life on hold just for a little while. But now Elijah is five and I have a support, network I’m able to do things for myself, and I’m hoping to travel!’
