Laura is the founder of Nagnata, a Byron Bay-based sustainable activewear label inspired by her love of yoga.

The couple met in Byron, where her design studio is based near his farm in Nashua.

News of Simon’s relationship came weeks after he announced his split from Rebecca Rigg, his wife of 29 years, on January 29.  

The former couple told People in a statement: ‘We remain close friends and our three children will always be the most important focus of our lives.’

But according to Fox News, they actually separated nine months earlier, in April last year.

Simon first met Rebecca in the early ’90s and they married in 1998 after five years of living together.
