“Kane's really good. He's pretty shy and I'm not, so we're a good match,” the 31-year-old brunette beauty told the Herald Sun.
It’s believed Abbey met the Richmond Tigers player through Love Island Australia star Tayla Damir, who is engaged to the 29-year-old’s teammate Nathan Broad.
Speculation over the pair’s romance began in back in May when Abbey accompanied Kane to tv presenter Sam Mac's book launch in Melbourne.
Abbey’s new relationship comes on the heels of the breakdown of her marriage to Sky News Racing presenter Ben Way.
At the tail end of 2019, Abbey - the granddaughter of Olympic legend Herb Elliott – was announced as the new co-host of House Rules alongside Jamie Durie before walking down the aisle to marry Ben.
In front of 140 family and friends, including stars such as Neighbours' Rob Mills and Home and Away's Sam Frost, Abbey and Ben tied the knot at Lot 100 in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia.
"Walking down the aisle and seeing [Ben] at the end waiting for me was just something I'll never forget," Abbey told The Advertiser at the time.
The Perth-born TV host attended 10 custom fittings with luxury bridal house Pallas Couture to create her dream wedding dress.
“The dress was a real princess moment,” she said following the nuptials.
“I always thought I’d be more of a sleek slip kind of gal but by the time I put on a princess dress I knew that we were going to have to widen the aisle. It was just so beautiful.”
Long before becoming husband and wife, Abbey and Ben met like many have before them – in the workplace.
"I had just started an internship at Fox Sports and I was newly single," Abbey previously shared with WHO.
"Ben was the anchor and I thought he was pretty cute. It all sort of went from there. We always joke that I pretty much chased him profusely which is sadly the case."
"We started off in the workplace together which of course had its little dramatic moments but mostly it was just fun, and we knew from the beginning that it was something pretty special.
“From the moment we first kissed, it was like, OK, this is it. We’ve been full steam ahead ever since.”
But the pair filed for divorce just a year after their extravagant 2019 wedding.
Abbey also changed her name back to her maiden “Gelmi” title following the shock break-up.
Abbey, at the height of her career, is part of Channel Seven’s Toyko Olympics coverage along with veteran sports reporters Bruce McAvaney and Basil Zempilas, and former sprinter Matt Shirvington.
“Olympics is like a mecca to me and something that's always been important to my family,” she previously told the West Australian.
“It’s the ultimate reality TV, the Olympics — the highs, lows, big blows — it doesn’t matter who is competing people are competing for their dreams and it’s going to be really exciting to cover.
“It doesn’t get much more dramatic than people getting one shot in four years or in this case five years, to have a go at their dreams.”
