Since splitting from her Silverchair star ex in 2008, Natalie's been linked to soccer star Raphael Spiegel and photographer Matt Field, among others.

Speaking of motherhood, the 46-year-old previously told Stellar Magazine, "Becoming a parent is the most incredible thing that's ever happened to me. It's something I've wanted to do since I was a little girl." She added, "It's given me a sense of peace."

Yet, the former "Neighbours" star did acknowledged "the struggle a lot of women are still going through trying to attain that and what it feels like to be left behind." She elaborated, "It's important to acknowledge all the women out there, including the ones going, 'Ugh, another mother talking about how happy they are.' "
