In 2013, the glamorous brunette was named an ‘Active Living Advocate’ by fitness brand Lorna Jane, and in an accompanying interview spoke about her love for sport and competitive spirit. 

‘I was involved in team sports all throughout my schooling. In grade 11 I injured my ankle pretty badly playing netball, tearing all the ligaments. This ruled out sports that cause strain to my joints and so alternatively I took up training at the gym with my mum,’ the then 19-year-old said. 

‘It became pretty addictive, using workouts that were designed to change the shape of my body as well as just keep generally fit. It’s nice to be able to see your progress, as well as feel it on the inside.’

‘It’s absolutely gut wrenching to be apart from the person you love for months at a time,’ she wrote in a post to Dion recently.

‘I don’t know how I got so lucky to find this guy, who makes me smile this big every day, while giving me the most selfless support and encouragement to go about my journeys.’

Brooke Cotchin, wife of Trent Cotchin 

Brooke and Trent met while they were at school, and in 2013, the pair married in a stunning ceremony in Flinders, Victoria. 

They share two daughters together – Harper, five, and Mackenzie, four.  

Brooke, an Instagram influencer, who also runs a designer sock brand, previously said that the key to a good marriage is ‘supporting each other’.

‘The way we live our life is that whatever one of us is investing their time in, we both are. We feel as though that’s a real strength in our relationship,’ she told Health Lab.  

Brooke made headlines in 2016 when she took to Instagram to publicly defend Trent when his team leadership had been criticised in the media and by fans.

‘Every week you go out and give your all. To have to listen to the constant criticism you have had to put up with especially of late has been incredibly hard,’ she wrote.

‘Those closest to you know just how dedicated you are to your football club and teammates on and off the field. As a wise man once told me “People’s opinions are none of our business”.’ 

The post was slammed by the public, but Trent defended his wife.

‘I think she just sees what other people are saying or thinking outside of our four walls, and then obviously our family and friends,’ he told Channel Nine at the time.

‘But the reality is criticism doesn’t just affect the people it’s said about, it’s the people that care about them as well.’

Last year, Emma made headlines when she spoke about her experiences with body shaming during an episode of The Lady Bunch – an online talk show also starring Rozalia Russian, Rebecca Harding and Elliot Garnaut.

During the episode, Emma revealed to her co-hosts that she’d recently received a shocking text a friend sent her by mistake saying she ‘must be amazing in the sack’ to date an AFL player. 

‘I wrote back going, ‘The weirdest thing is, I’m pretty sure I’m terrible in the sack!” she mused.
