The couple reportedly got engaged in 2021. The speculations of their engagement rose after Emma was spotted wearing a diamond ring on her wedding finger. Lyon started dating Emma in 2017 after ending her relationship with ex-wife Mel Waring.

Lyon and Emma’s relationship began with a huge controversy when Lyon was caught kissing Emma in Perth when Lyon was still with his first wife Waring.

Their separation was confirmed in a heartbreaking post by Mel Waring. “I didn’t ask for this, this wasn’t the way my life was supposed to be. He was my forever, he was my whole world,” she wrote.

‘Until the very end I was 100 percent devoted to our life and I loved every part of him and our world. This was like a bomb, it went off from behind.’

‘I had to deal with [it] in a very public, humiliating, and confronting way. A part of me died,’ she added.

Nathan Lyon who recently played against Sri Lanka was the second highest wicket-taker in the two games – a series that ended in a draw(1-1). Lyon has played 110 Tests for Australia so far and is the third-highest wicket-taker for his side.
