He’s Australia’s new cricket test captain, but even before he landed the job of his dreams, Pat Cummins was leading a fairytale life.

The 28-year-old cricketer is engaged to model-turned-interior designer Becky Boston and the couple recently welcomed their first child, son Albie.

UK-born Becky, 31, started dating the athlete in 2014, with Pat finally proposing to him in February of last year.

‘My Forever Person @ patcummins30. I’m the happiest girl in the world right now !! ‘ she wrote on Instagram at the time.

In an interview with the Herald Sun, Becky revealed that Pat made her request during a romantic picnic in the countryside.

“Pat surprised me with a picnic in the countryside and I had absolutely no idea this was going to happen,” she told the publication.

“I was a little agitated when he took out the bottle of champagne. It was very romantic, he knelt down and I think I just went into shock and threw myself on him.

In an interview with The New Zealand Times in April last year, Pat explained how the coronavirus pandemic had derailed the couple’s wedding plans.

“First of all, it means that I will have to be more involved in the plans because I am more present, which is good,” he said.

“No, we’re lucky. Obviously, I just got engaged, so hopefully most of this is over by the time our wedding arrives.

The couple later announced that they were expecting their first child together in April this year, with Becky sharing a photo of herself cradling her soaring baby bump at the beach.

‘I can’t hide this happiness anymore !! Baby Boston Cummins will join us in the spring. We are SO delighted to meet you !!! ‘ she wrote on Instagram at the time.

He was investigated by Cricket Australia in 2018 after the woman complained but was cleared and the case kept under wraps.

After being named captain following the 2018 ball tampering scandal, Tim held a press conference, during which he tearfully apologized and announced he would step down.

“It’s an incredibly difficult decision, but the right one for me, my family and cricket,” the emotional sports star said at the press conference.

Tim’s wife Bonnie was aware of her husband’s indiscretion in 2018, and supported him for the past three years, insisting they had passed him.

She said the sexting scandal had actually been “good for their marriage” even though she was “completely shaken” by his betrayal.

Bonnie said she had already “had her time” to “get angry, let off steam and pissed off,” but decided in 2018 to put the incident behind them.

“I am honored to take on this role ahead of what will be a huge Ashes summer,” Pat said in a statement after being appointed Australian cricket test captain.
