Ace Indian defender Sandesh Jhingan on Tuesday confirmed his marriage to Russian photographer Ivanka Pavlova.
The news was first announced by Pavlova on Instagram, where the two are seen posing with a diamond wedding ring.
"Thank you, my love, for the happiness and joy of every day, for tenderness and courage, for your support and strength, for confidence and love!

I am grateful to you for everything you do, for everything you have managed to achieve and I'm always there by your side. I love you," Pavlova said in her Instagram post.
