He added: ‘Can’t wait for the next decade together watching our kids grow up together. Love you.’

Last week, it was revealed that George, 30, had pleaded not guilty after he was charged with ‘sexually touching’ a female fan in Sydney.

The St George Illawarra Dragons forward was charged last month after the woman reported the alleged incident to NSW Police.

Police will allege a woman made a complaint after George allegedly went to her home at Mascot in Sydney’s inner south in early March. 

Detectives will allege the woman had requested a signed football jersey from the NRL star.

George is alleged to have ‘sexually touched the woman’s bottom without her consent’ between 10.20am and 10.45am, according to court documents.

Family lawyer Bryan Wrench attended Downing Centre Court on George’s behalf last week.

He told the magistrate his client intends to plead not guilty to the single offence of sexually touching another person without their consent.  

The matter was adjourned until June 8, and George faces up to five years behind bars if he’s found guilty.
