Aussie sporting great and all-round nice guy, Dylan Alcott, can’t wipe the cheeky smile off his face.

And if rumours swirling around the Australian Open are anything to go by, the former world number one wheelchair tennis champ has every reason to feel like he has won another title, after scoring the girl of his dreams.

According to our courtside insiders, Dylan is ready to finally tie the knot with long-time love, 31-year-old Melbourne sexologist Chantelle Otten, and preparation is in full swing!

While the larrikin Paralympian remains tight-lipped on the details, New Idea hears Dylan, 32, has already told his closest mates to save the date.

“So far, Dylan has given every hint it’s before the end of the Melbourne summer – while the sun is still shining!” the source reveals to New Idea.

“He’s timed it to perfection – he finishes up as Australian of the Year this week, and word is he may take Chantelle off to one of their favourite wineries or even do it courtside for the actual proposal. But when it comes to the wedding, that’s a whole different story,” the source continues.

Since he was a little boy, one of Dylan’s favourite spots has always been Melbourne’s Luna Park, and so it’s little surprise friends close to the multiple Grand Slam winner are convinced that’s where he’s secretly planning to stage their big day.

“That’s the sort of couple he and Chantelle are – full of fun and life and laughs. Those two squeeze every last bit of joy out of every day, so that’s exactly what they want when they pledge their ‘I dos’!”

Proving Dylan isn’t the only one ready to wed, Chantelle has also been dropping her own little hints that she’s set to marry her Prince Charming any day now – even following one of Australia’s leading celebrity stylists Lana Wilkinson on Instagram, who just so happens to specialise in all things bridal!

“Chantelle would be loving Lana’s edgy designs and ideas – she’s a real individual and could even go so far and not wear traditional white – anything is possible.”

From the moment the loved-up pair first laid eyes on each other at the launch of Dylan’s book Able in 2018, the two have been inseparable.

“They’re dedicated to helping others understand that anyone can lead a normal and happy and loving life, no matter what the disability,” explains the source.

“Dylan has always regarded himself as one very lucky man – and he’s ready for the next exciting chapter, whatever that may be!”

Meanwhile, adding further fuel to speculation a wedding is well and truly in the works, Dylan captioned a happy snap with Chantelle on social media with the caption: “Wedding SZN begins” in October last year.
