"I said yes from the first day we met. This was our little secret, wasn’t it," Sharapova captioned her engagement post.

Alexander is the founder of Paddle8, an online auction house, that has been extremely successful. Maria Sharapova and Alexander Gilkes first went public with their romance in October 2018. The British millionaire is also a close friend of Prince Harry, Prince William and Kate Middleton.
