Russian tennis star Maria Sharapova surely has broken number of hearts as she has finally declared that she is dating the British business tycoon Alexander Gilkes after she posted images of her and his boyfriend on her Instagram account.
This is the first time that Sharapova has made her relationship public as the duo enjoyed a romantic date in the Cotswolds. The pair enjoyed walks in the countryside followed by a drink in a local pub.
Sharapova was first rumoured to be dating Gilkes in early January this year but the pair has never confirmed their relationship despite frequently being snapped together.
Gilkes, a handsome 38-year old British man who has some serious connections in Hollywood as well as the British royalty. Gilkes is considered one of the most enviable fiancees in the UK, is a member of the royal family and is close friends with Prince William and Harry. But he won the heart of Sharapova by not only this: it turns out that Alexander knows Russian well and speaks with Masha in her native language.
Here are the pictures from their romantic date at Cotswolds.
