In recent weeks, Nadiya has stopped wearing her engagement ring and is no longer being followed by Matija on Instagram. She last posted about him back in June, sharing a snap of Matija with their daughter Mila.

She wrote: "Happy Father's Day @Matija_Škarabot This beautiful connection between daughter and father is so important. Makes me so happy to see this kind of moment between them. Thank you for being the best dad to our beautiful little girl. We love you."
