SOUTH Sydney Rabbitohs star Tom Burgess’ girlfriend has the beauty of supermodel Miranda Kerr — and the sportsman isn’t shy to brag about it.
The NRL player gushed about former Miss Universe hopeful Tahlia Giumelli on The Kyle and Jackie O Show today after the hosts grilled him about his love life.
“I’ve got a lovely girlfriend Tahlia, she’s great,” he said.
“She’s a Cronulla girl. She’s very beautiful.
“She actually did Miss Universe recently and came third so technically I’m going out with the third best looking girl in Australia.”
Giumelli, 24, who once dated Grant Hackett, lives with Crohn’s disease, which she has battling since 2013.
The brunette told Confidential in May she told Burgess about her life-changing condition before they hit off their romance.
“I’m pretty honest and this is something I wouldn’t hide. Tom was really understanding,” she said at the time.
“He’s been a good support through and through from the beginning — he’s always encouraging me.”
Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis is known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease. According to Crohn’s & Colitis Australia, inflammation in the colon, rectum and gastrointestinal tract can become so severe that sufferers need to be hospitalised and can require surgery.
