“I said yes from the first day of our meeting. It was our little secret, ” Sharapova wrote on Instagram, posting photos and videos with Gilks, and also attaching an emoji in the form of a wedding ring and two glasses of champagne to the post.
“Thank you for making me a very, very happy guy. I want to love you all my life and learn from you, ” Gilkes wrote, posting a photo with Sharapova.
