No-one can deny that Melbourne mum Alex Nation, 24, and last year’s Bachelor winner Snezana Markoski, 36, have a lot in common. Not only did they sign up for their respective seasons as single mums, but they also hit it off with their Bachie beaus straight away, and they also hail from opposite sides of the country to their love interests.

‘I think they have such a beautiful story, it’s really lovely,’ she says of the happy couple, who now live in Sam’s hometown of Melbourne after Snezana and her daughter Eve, 10, relocated from Perth.

Although Alex has never met the duo, she’s full of admiration for Snez and her brave decision as a mum to go on the show, especially because she’s experienced first-hand how difficult it was to leave her five-year-old son Elijah.

‘I admire her,’ shares Alex. ‘It was such a tough decision to go on the show, but I had to remind myself that it was only for a few months.’
