James Tedesco, Maria Glenellis announce engagement: NRL Sydney Roosters captain’s news

BREAKING NEWS: Footy star James Tedesco and his longtime lover announce their engagement in loved up post

Sydney Roosters captain James Tedesco and his longtime girlfriend Maria Glenellis have announced their engagement. 

Ms Glenellis flashed what appeared to be a diamond ring in a happy Instagram post

The picture was posted on the Sydney Rooster fullback’s Instagram account without any caption but immediately sparked a whirlwind of fans congratulating the pair.

The pic appears to have been taken while the couple enjoy a break in the country and show several snaps of the couple celebrating Tedesco popping the question. 

They have rarely spoken of their relationship in public, but Ms Glinellis has often posted pics of them on social media. 

The Glinellis family are hospitality entrepreneurs, co-owning Ironwood Coffee on Sydney’s lower north shore.

James, who won the Dally M Player of the Year Award in 2019, told The Guardian Australia in 2020 what keeps him grounded.

‘I still stick really close to a lot of my friends outside of footy, that sort of keeps me grounded,’ he said.

‘That’s how I am, I don’t really like to brag or big-note myself. I still feel like I’m a normal kid from Camden [in Sydney]. That’s how I’ve always been and I don’t think that will ever change,’ James added.

More to come.
