Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell took to Instagram and wished his Indian-origin fiancee Vini Raman on her birthday. Maxwell shared a photo of the two of them with the caption “Happy Birthday to my stunning fiance! You’re awesome. #birthdaygirl #loveyou.” In his post, Raman too responded to the photo with a funny comment. “Love you… even though your choice of Instagram filters is highly questionable,” she added the comment on the photo. However, Maxwell and Raman announced their engagement last week through their Instagram posts as well.
Glenn Maxwell had posted a picture with Vini Raman on February 27 and captioned the post with a ring emoji too. Raman also posted a picture on her Instagram account and shared that Maxwell had asked her to marry him last week. “Last week my favourite person asked me to marry him #YES,” she added the post. Maxwell gave the credit to Vini Raman for being the first to ask him about his mental health break from cricket in October last year.
“It was actually my partner who suggested I speak to someone, she was the first one who noticed it, so I should probably thank her as well. Once I had that initial conversation it was a big weight off my shoulders,” Maxwell had said.
“My girlfriend was probably No. 1, it wasn’t an easy job for her to deal with me going through my mood swings for the first few weeks, but Michael Lloyd was the guy I had the initial conversation with, he’s been someone who I’ve confided in since back in the academy days, so I’ve known him for well over a decade now,” added Maxwell.
Maxwell returned to the action during the Big Bash League where he led Melbourne Stars to the finals of the tournament. However, he was left out of Australia’s squad for the tour to South Africa after he was advised to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left elbow.
