SCOTLAND rugby star Stuart Hogg has gone public with his new girlfriend Leonna Mayor – once labelled the 'world's sexiest jockey.'
The Scottish Sun exclusively revealed how Hogg, 31, "flaunted" glamorous Leonna just days after his wife Gillian had given birth to their fourth child.
The former Scotland captain's new romance with TV star Leonna, 32, was confirmed in a snap shared on Instagram.
She posted a picture saying "the least Mondayest Monday ever" along with a loved-up emoji and the song 'Better Together' playing over it.
Hogg made the shock announcement in the summer that he was quitting rugby with immediate effect.
Having initially intended to play for Scotland at the World Cup, he instead retired in July citing "my body has not been able to do the things I wanted and needed it to do."
Hogg also said he wanted to spend more time with his family.
Pals of his wife Gillian, 36, revealed how she had hoped his retirement would be good for their marriage.
Instead, she's been left "heartbroken" and devastated at how quickly he's gone public with his new partner.
While Hogg's career has given him a huge profile, his new partner Leonna is also very well known in the sporting world.

She is a former flat-racing jockey who had 32 race wins under her belt during her career between 2009 and 2013.
Leonna was dubbed the 'world's sexiest jockey' when she took part in a 2013 photo shoot, posing in her underwear for Zoo magazine.
Speaking about the shoot with the lads' mag, she said: "I know the reasons I did it and I think they were the right reasons. It didn't do anyone any harm and I don't regret it.
"I didn't get my boobs out and never would do that. I hope to have children in the future and there's nothing they could find on the internet I would be ashamed of, nothing at all.
"I think because I'm a girl with a certain image I have to work harder. I still believe people look at someone like me and think, 'There's a bimbo'.
"I find it really offensive when people say I only get work on television because I'm pretty. It's not like I'm just standing there in front of a camera doing nothing.
"We all know people who have got jobs for the wrong reasons. I've got jobs because I've worked hard, proved myself and made things happen."
While her competitive racing career is over, Leonna now leads a glamorous life and is a well known TV star.
She's a regular face on both ITV Racing and Sky Sports, covering the biggest meetings in the sport.
Moving into broadcasting almost immediately after her flat racing career ended, it's now become her full time role.
Leonna has presented live from the Grand National, Glorious Goodwood and Ascot, among many others.
She's often spotted wearing glam outfits for the big occasions, fitting right in with the racing crowd.
Away from racing, Leonna has built a following of more than 31,000 on Instagram.
As well as her work, she regularly shares snaps from her luxury trips abroad to stunning destinations.
She recently visited the idyllic Greek island of Lefkada, having also jetted off to Dubai earlier this year.
Leonna also enjoyed a trip to the stunning Koh Samui resort of Thailand, sharing sun-soaked bikini-clad snaps with her social media fans.
Fans regularly swoon over pics, with her glam posts receiving several comments from punters.

Hogg and Leonna were recently seen snuggling up in a pub in Hawick, while another snap posted by the TV presenter showed them at a racing event.
