Come December, and cricketer Yuvraj Singh will tie the knot with fiancée Hazel Keech, who is an actor and is known for working in the Salman Khan starrer "Bodygaurd". 

Yuvraj reportedly confirmed this to Bombay Times, putting an end to all speculation around his marriage. 

“It will happen in the first week of December. I will make an announcement soon," he told the paper. 

Shabnam Singh, Yuvraj's mother, said that the wedding is likely to take place sometime before Yuvraj's birthday on December 12.

A source close to the cricketer's family told Bombay Times, "The elaborate Punjabi wedding will be held in Delhi. The reception too will take place in the capital. Since Hazel's mother originally hails from Uttar Pradesh, UP rituals will also be followed. Family and guests of the bride are expected to come over from Mauritius and UK. There may not be any function in Mumbai."

Speaking to Mid-Day, Yuvraj had earlier spoken on why he was apprehensive about announcing his wedding day. 

“I have my guards up this time since it’s too special. Everyone is bound to have a personal life and when you have a schedule as hectic as ours, you hardly have a life. I don’t like being asked about Hazel because I don’t want anything about us to come out. By dating someone, you are not committing a crime. It is the most normal thing in this world. But, the way it is pursued here is wrong,” he told the paper. 

He also spoke about how the personal life of cricketers in India who are dating famous personalities, is sought to be blamed if they put up a poor performance on the field.

In an interview of the couple published on India Today, this is what the duo had to say when asked what was that one quality which they loved and hated about each other. 

Yuvraj: I love that she's so caring. And I don't hate anything about you, actually (addressing Hazel). But if you could make decisions by yourself, that would be good.

Hazel: I love that he has the biggest heart I've ever seen. There's nothing I hate about you... erm... (Hazel taking ages to decide), I don't like that you tell me at the last minute we're going out and then complain about how long I take to get ready!
