It’s somewhat difficult for people to enter into a new relationship immediately after a breakup.
Making someone, who was once a part of your daily life, entirely stranger makes the person feel incomplete and empty, and baseball player Russell Martin might have undergone through the same scenario after he split with the model girlfriend.
Engaged With Longtime Girlfriend
Well, the handsome baseball player is in a relationship with a researcher Elisabeth Chicoine, who graduated from the University of Quebec in Montreal. No details regarding the commencement of relationship and meeting events have got revealed by the hunk.

But in an interview with a source on 2015, when asked about his weekend's program Martin disclosed about spending time with his girlfriend and enjoying the delicacy, he said:
“I’m a foodie, and I like to try different restaurants. My girlfriend and I will wake up, grab coffee spend time with the dog, take him for a walk and then map restaurants we want to try out. Watch a movie, go to a nice dinner, have a nice glass of wine. That sounds like a good day to me.”
Russell has kept his relationship as private as he can.
But, his fans were surprised on 11 September 2018 when his then-club posted a tweet revealing that he was now a parent. James and Elisabeth welcomed the new member of the family, their daughter on the 11th of September 2018. The pair named her, Eve.

Following the birth of their child, the couple got engaged.
The news of their engagement surfaced when Elisabeth share a photo of herself with Russell. On the picture, she can be seen with a shiny rock on her finger, and the caption also implied that they had indeed gone through with the ceremony.
The couple has yet to set a date for their wedding to call each other husband and wife.
Martin's Past Relationships
Before getting involved with Elisabeth, Martin was dating a model girlfriend, Gabrielle Lavoie in 2014. In November 2014, Martin was caught with his girlfriend Gabrielle in the front row of media congregation at Rogers Centre.
During an interview back in mid-April 2015, when asked about the ten things which Martin can’t live without, he said about the new moisturizer introduced by Lavoie.
“My girlfriend, Gabrielle, introduced me to Dr. Hauschka face cream. My skin takes a beating on the field, and this keeps me looking young behind the beard, at least.”
It seems that their relationship lasted until mid- 2015. With no disclosure of the reason for their break up, they moved on where Martin found a new love while Gabrielle has confined her relationship status.
Before Gabrielle, Martin was once in a relationship with Marikym Hervieux, the sister of Valerie Gagne. The relationship between the two initiated from the year 2009.

The relationship between the two was considered to be the paradise for the baseball player, as, in an interview, Martin claimed about looking good to his woman, where he said:
"I like looking good for my lady. Life is good; I'm in paradise right now because of her.”
The relationship between them no longer exists. Like always neither Russell nor Marikym confessed about their break up reason. Maybe to alleviate unwanted scandal and accusation both of them have kept their differences away from the media reach.
