In the photos, published by New Idea, Alex is seen kissing Maegan and holding her arm, with a friend confirming the football teammates are dating.
"They are now inseparable, spending very few nights apart, but it was all a bit of a shock," Alex's friend, who chose to remain anonymous told New Idea.
"Up until this point Alex had only ever had relationships with men. "
"Right now she is not giving this or herself any sort of label such as being gay or bisexual. She does not see the need to categorise it that way," they continued.
