'I've had so so many! Travelling the world for eight years working with incredibly talented creatives on campaigns ahead of their time, very early in my career - invaluable to this day' Mia said.

She also has a popular TikTok account where she offers makeup advice for mature skin.

News of Richard's split with his ex Nicola broke in January.

He was rumoured to be popping the question soon, but it appears those reports may have instead cooled the relationship.

Sources told The Daily Telegraph the couple split in November, not long after they were spotted together at Derby Day celebrations in Melbourne.

The insider claimed their relationship got rocky in March after online media outlets speculated about their possible engagement.

They said Richard was reluctant to marry a fourth time after giving away a small fortune to his last three wives during their respective divorces.

However sources close to the television host said in March last year that he wanted to make a commitment to the former flight attendant, whom he has been dating since 2020.

'Dickie may be 68, but he's got a lot of life left in him. He's now more than ready to finally settle down,' they told New Idea at the time.

'They just have this lovely ease about them. As a couple, they give each other space, but seem to really love being together.

'He also sees his good mate Karl Stefanovic so happy and settled with Jasmine and his new family, and Dickie wants what Karl has.'

Richard has been married three times and has five children to four different mothers.

He first married at the age of 18 after his 16-year-old girlfriend Lynette fell pregnant. The teenage couple went on to have a son together, named Adam.

After moving to Australia to pursue his pop career, Richard married for a second time and had two more children, daughter Rebecca and son Nick.

When that marriage finished, Richard had a series of romances with high-profile women, including actress Rebecca Gibney in 1989.

Their relationship reportedly ended when Richard left the actress for his third wife Michelle Burke. Together the couple had a son, model and actor Christian.

After they split, Richard went on to have a fifth child with designer Collette Dinnigan. They broke up in 2004 when she was yet to give birth to their daughter Estella.

Back in 2017, Richard joked that after three divorces 'marriage is not my specialty'.

Daily Mail Australia reached out to Richard and Nicola at the time, but Richard declined to comment.
