It seems the month of December is particularly auspicious for the sports stars of the country as many of them have been tying the knot or getting engaged lately.
After international archers Deepika Kumari and Atanu Das got engaged earlier this week in Ranchi, badminton stars and decade old couple Sania Nehwal and Parupalli Kashyap also tied the knot in Hyderabad on December 14.
And this is not it, champion wrestler Vinesh Phogat also got officially hooked to her wrestler-model boyfriend Somvir Rathee on December 13. The year 2018 has been really special for Vinesh, as she won Gold in both Commonwealth and Asian Games and became the first Indian female athlete to accomplish the feat.
Vinesh and Somvir have been dating for the longest time. The two never shied away from expressing their love for each other on Instagram but never spoke about it in public too.
However, they made it official after the two got engaged immediately after Vinesh came back from Jakarta winning Gold at the Asian Games 2018 in August. She won the medal in 50kg freestyle wrestling category and became the first Indian woman to achieve the feat in the category.
The two exchanged rings at Indira Gandhi International airport, immediately after Vinesh landed in the country from Jakarta in front of the whole family.
On her wedding, Vinesh was seen wearing an orange lehenga with fine golden embroidery. Complementing Vinesh, Somvir chose to wear a cream sherwani with golden embellishments and an orange sehra.
The two looked absolutely adorable together, but it was Vinesh who stole the show looking nothing less than a Bollywood star.
