Alex Nation Finally Explains Why She Broke Up With Fiancée Maegan Luxa

Alex Nation

Ahead of her big TV return in Bachelor In Paradise this week — the show premieres tomorrow bloody night, people!Alex Nation has spoken out about the demise of her relationship with fiancée Maegan “Maegs” Luxa, who she dated after breaking up with bachelor Richie Strahan (who is ALSO appearing on Bachie In Paradise and I cannot cope with the level of spice right now).

In her first interview on the split, Alex told TV Week magazine that her first same-sex relationship moved “too fast” and she felt the need to hit pause shortly after becoming engaged to Maegs in December 2017.

When she proposed, I said yes with my whole heart. But as time went on, I thought this was going way too fast. We didn’t break up; we decided we wouldn’t be engaged, so I stopped wearing my ring.

Alex also told the magazine that Maegs, who she met while playing AFL for a local team, understood her need to slow things down, since she’d been with women her “for all her romantic life” but it was Alex’s first time dating a woman, adding: “I owed it to myself to explore my sexuality and figure out who I am.”

The 27-year-old told TV Week that she’s remained good friends with Maegs, but doesn’t think she’ll be watching her return to reality TV for Bachie In Paradise.

Probably just as well, since the show will reunite her with ex Richie and also if the steamy promos are anything to go by, sees Alex get her smooch on with castmate Brooke Blurton.

Bachelor In Paradise returns Tuesday April 9 at 7.30pm on Channel Ten. Stay tuned for PEDESTRIAN.TV‘s recaps, which we’ll be bringing you every night the show is on – just like we did last year.
