Dylan reportedly met Chantelle, who is still legally married, at a book signing for his autobiography earlier this year, according to The Daily Telegraph.

The couple have been splashing their romance all over Instagram in recent weeks, with the glamorous brunette dedicating several gushing posts to her new boyfriend. 

In late April, Chantelle shared a selfie of the pair together, alongside the caption: ‘Welcome home, my hero. I love you more than anything.’

In another post, she wrote: ‘Come home please, my love.’

Dylan has returned the favour, leaving the comment ‘LOML’ under one of Chantelle photos recently. ‘LOML’ means ‘love of my life’.

Last month, Chantelle accompanied Dylan to an ITF Tennis gala in Paris, where he was crowned the 2018 world champion.

The sportsman’s last confirmed relationship was with a woman named Kate Lawrence, but it’s unclear when they broke up.
