The boyfriend of Drake’s Australian Instagram crush has been revealed as a former professional rugby league player who came through the ranks of two top NRL teams before spending years living overseas chasing his dream.
The rapper set social media alight last week after posting an image of a blonde woman in a French restaurant, with fans speculating who the mystery stunner may be.
Drake captioned the photo: ‘Tried to airdrop this woman a pic of herself ’cause she’s a dime.’
The woman has been revealed to be public relations assistant-turned-maths teacher Dearne Cooper, according to the Saturday Confidential.
She had been holidaying in the coastal town of St Tropez with her newborn son Henri and partner Nathan Wynn – who can be revealed as a former professional rugby league player who played for the junior teams of NRL clubs before moving to France.

Wynn came through the ranks at the Canterbury Bulldogs and St George Illawarra, winning the 2005 Jersey Flegg Grand Final with the Dragons.
He failed to earn a professional NRL contract, instead signing with the Sydney Bulls – a semi-professional team of Lebanese-Australian players.
Wynn, who played halfback, then moved to France where he would lead Toulouse Olympique in its inaugural season in the French Rugby League Championship. He would finish the club’s leading scorer in the 2009/10 season.
The 36-year-old spent just one season with Toulouse before moving to semi-professional side FC.Lézignan who play in France’s south – not far from St Tropez.
He won “Scrum Half of the Year” in the 2010/11 season, helping his side to the Elite 1 championship and Lord Derby Cup.
He last played for the team in 2013 and now works as an electrician.
