Almost two years after their marriage broke down, Braith Anasta is expecting a child with his new girlfriend, and his ex-wife Jodi Anasta (nee Gordon) has something to say about it.

"I am genuinely so happy to see both of them so happy," she told Fairfax Media at John Singleton's former coastal mansion in South Coogee, where the first of Myer's Spring 2017 launch was held this week for a VIP crowd.

"Honestly, I adore Rachael [Lee], she's an amazing woman and an amazing mum."

The retired Roosters star and former Home and Away and current Neighbours actor, who split in 2015 after almost three years of marriage, are parents of three year-old girl, Aleeia, while Lee, a personal trainer, also has a son, Addison, from a previous relationship.

"I said to [Braith], I am so happy Rachael is in Aleeia's life, she is very lucky," Jodi added.

"We are still in each other's lives, of course we are all amicable," the Myer ambassador added, despite Braith raising eyebrows after he made a slight against Jodi in March, when he was asked what happened to the diamond engagement ring, worth an estimated $140,000, he gave her.

"She probably hocked it," he said. "She's probably bought a few bags with it - handbags."

In 2009, Jodi suffered an incident surrounding cocaine use and a bikie when police found her cowering in an apartment in Bellevue Hill fearing she was under seige by gunmen - she was not. She was dating billionaire Channel 7 heir Ryan Stokes before the scandal.

But right now, life couldn't be going better for the star.

"I am so happy, what makes me happiest is my daughter.I see her become this independent, strong, confident woman. She's funny and witty and really caring. That's what makes me happy more than anything else," she said.

She's content with remaining single: "I'm not even thinking about relationships, but if it comes along, so be it," she said.

As well as playing Elly Conway on Neighbours, Jodi is gearing up for Spring Racing, an event at which she plays a key role for Myer.

"I already have all of my outfits ready, you'll see me in a lot of our new trends," she said.

"It's my favourite time of year."
