Former Miss Universe Australia Maria Thattil reveals heartbreaking reason she won’t be attending Australian Fashion Week

Former Miss Universe Australia Maria Thattil took to social media on Saturday to reveal the sad reason she won’t be attending Australian Fashion Week from Monday.

The stunner, 31, shared a photo of her looking pained while she lay in a hospital bed and told fans she was still recovering after having her wisdom teeth removed.

Maria had a white bandage wrapped around her head as she sadly gazed into the camera.

‘I will not be attending Australian Fashion Week. I can’t feel my tongue, I’m trying to keep calm,’ she told fans.

Fortunately, Maria’s AFLW star girlfriend Moana Hope, 36, was able to cheer her up by visiting her in the hospital and posing for a precious selfie alongside her.

Moana was all smiles in the cute picture as she tried her best to cheer up her sick girlfriend.

Maria captioned the photo with some amusing words: ‘Moana has a video of me immediately after surgery. I’m going to wait until I can have popcorn to watch it.’

Australian Fashion Week will be held in Sydney from Mon, 13 May until Friday the 17th, and will see a host of glamorous A-List stars attending and strutting their stuff.

In March, Thattil revealed that while she is open about her new romance with Moana, there are some things she prefers to keep private to protect her growing relationship.

The stunning model is dating AFLW star Moana Hope and the pair have been at many red carpet events and seen cuddling up on social media.

But she told Stellar Magazine that there is a limit to what she will share with the public.

'I will not be attending Australian Fashion Week . I can't feel my tongue, I'm trying to keep calm,' she told fans

‘Something I’ve learnt is the importance of protecting certain parts of your life and keeping something sacred,’ she said.

‘In this digital world that we live in, strangers do feel entitled to you; sometimes they can have parasocial relationships where they feel entitled to ask me things.

‘I always think to myself, these people would never walk up to you in the street and just, point-blank, to your face, ask you this stuff. And I feel like I don’t want that undue pressure’ she added. 

The couple have been dating for several months following Hope’s split from her ex-wife, Isabella Carlstrom.
