Gina Stewart, the world’s hottest grandma has claimed that she was “quietly” dating Shane Warne.

The legendary cricketer, 52, died of natural causes on March 4 in a luxury villa on the Thailand holiday island of Koh Samui.

Now six months later, the 52-year-old model has revealed that she and the late cricketer were chatting online for months in 2018 before eventually meeting up.

“I have been devastated over the last few months,” she told The Daily Star.

“The world lost a legend and I lost a friend and confidante. The unthinkable happened.

“I was dating Shane but it wasn’t well-known. He wanted to keep it personal.”

The pair met up after a game that Warne played and they “hit it off straight away and spent the whole night talking”.

Stewart claims that they got “extremely close” and that she promised Warne to keep their relationship out of the public eye.

She said they would have to wear hats and sunnies to avoid paparazzi who were stalking her house.

Despite not speaking at the time of his death, Stewart felt it was right to open up about what a lovely person Warne was.

“I couldn’t speak until now and I just want people to know he was a truly caring humanitarian.”
