The daughter of AFL great Brendan Fevola has been subjected to disgusting abuse from online trolls after going public with her new romance.

Mia Fevola and Western Bulldogs teenager Jamarra Ugle-Hagan's relationship has taken the AFL world by storm over the last few weeks.

Recent social media posts sparked rumours that the number one pick in last year's AFL Draft had begun dating the daughter of the Carlton legend.

An Instagram post last week that showed the pair arm in arm all but confirmed that the pair were officially together.

The Herald Sun also reported that the pair were seen together frequently over summer as Ugle-Hagan prepared for his rookie AFL season.

Fevola and Ugle-Hagan have been up in Far North Queensland hot spot Port Douglas enjoying some time away before the new season gets underway.

In one of her snaps from the idyllic destination, Fevola is seen lying next to the AFL rookie in a photo that she posted to Instagram.

The pair are lying on a beach towel together and Fevola has her eyes closed but looks at peace in the lovely photo.

However, the post has been targeted in a series of disgusting posts by online trolls, who have left several awful insults about Fevola's dating history.

Fevola - who recently celebrated her 21st birthday - previously dated Richmond premiership-winning player Daniel Rioli for two years.

The pair broke up last year.

Many of Fevola's 135,000 Instagram followers hit back at the vitriol she'd received from trolls, with the 21-year-old sharing one such message of support on her own Instagram story.

It read: “Wow we’re slut shaming now, today of all days where hundreds & thousands of women across the nation marched for the right to be safe wherever they are & with whomever they are with, be it on a social scale or professional, this is precisely the toxic masculinity & culture we’re up against, you should be a shame (sic) of yourself for this comment.”

Fevola had previously stressed that she and Ugle-Hagan were 'merely friends' as recently as last month but it now seems clear she has moved on after parting ways with Rioli last year.

In between relationships, Fevola has been hard at work establishing and promoting her leisurewear label MALLT Collective.

In November, Fevola joked that Rioli wouldn't be able to get rid of her footy mad dad.

“Daniel and I are really good friends. I’m not seeing anyone,” Fevola said.

“Daniel is really close to my family. He always talks to them. I don’t think he’ll ever be able to get rid of dad.”

Ugle-Hagan meanwhile became the first Indigenous player to be picked first overall since Des Headland in 1998.

After selecting the 18-year-old at No.1, the 2016 premiers are hoping to fashion the star into a Lance Franklin prototype.
