This article was last updated by on

Tess Flintoff’s parents, Tim and Michelle Flintoff raised three kids in Melbourne, Australia. The couple has been supportive of their daughter’s career from day one.

The 21-year-old cricket prodigy, Tess Flintoff, had begun showing her talent with a cricket bat from a young age. An all-rounder, last year Tess created history in the WBBL.

She scored the fast fifty in the WBBL and the second fastest in the Women’s T20 cricket, hitting half a century in 16 balls. She currently plays for Victoria in WNCL and Melbourne Stars in WBBL.

The youngster also recently replaced fellow Australian cricketer Ellyse Perry in The Hundred Competition. The youngster will be starring with the bat for Birmingham Phoenix after Perry suffered a knee injury in the latter stages of the Women’s Ashes. 

Tess Flintoff Parents, Tim, And Michelle Flintoff

Tess Flintoff’s parents, Tim and Michelle Flintoff, hail from Victoria, Australia. The couple tied the knot on January 5, 1991, and went on to raise three kids.

In his heyday, Tim Flintoff was a cricket player like his daughter. But didn’t earn as many accolades. He played a few Premier 1st XI matches for the Kingston Hawthorn Cricket Club, and that was it.

Tess’s mother, Michelle Flintoff, graduated from Victoria College, Rusden Campus. The couple is available on Facebook, having shared a few family photos.

Tim and Michelle have tried to keep themselves out of the public limelight. There aren’t any interviews conducted with the couple, but with Tess’s rise, that might soon change.

The young cricketer shares a strong bond with her grandparents, Grahame and Pat Flintoff. Grahame even has Tess and him as his profile picture on Facebook. Previously, Tess shared a snap of her with her grandparents in 2020 on her Instagram. 

Tess Flintoff Siblings, Amy, And Zach Flintoff

Tess Flintoff grew up with two siblings, Amy, and Zach Flintoff, in Melbourne, Australia.

The cricketer’s sister, Amy Flintoff, is a nurse at Austin Health and unlike her siblings, doesn’t seem to have any history with sports. She is available on Instagram but has kept her handle private.

Previously, Tess has shared a few family photos, including her sister, Amy, as well as her cousins, Hannah and Rachel. All and all Flintoff family seem to share a strong bond. 

Tess’s brother, Zach Flintoff, plays cricket for Ringwood Cricket Club. Last year in February, Tess presented her brother with his First XI Cap, a proud moment for the family.

A video of Tess handing her brother his first XI cap was shared on the Facebook page of Ringwood Cricket Club, with Tess even jokingly cursing him out at the end of the video.

Tess Flintoff Boyfriend, Lane Heppell

Tess Flintoff is currently in a relationship with Lane Heppell, with whom she became Instagram official in 2020. 

The young couple, Lane and Tess, look very much in love, with Tess sharing a few of their loved-up picture now and then on her social media handle. 

After sharing their first photo in June 2020, the next post from Tess that featured Lane came over a year later. She shared a picture of Lane hugging her as they celebrated Easter together.

Last year on February 25, Tess celebrated their second anniversary, sharing a sweet sunkissed picture with their pet dog. Tess captioned the post, “2 years with my favorite boy, and to Lane for third wheeling.”

Tess shared an appreciation post for her man on September 23, 2022, on his birthday. She shared a picture of what looks like a camping trip and wrote in the caption that she is keen to celebrate more birthdays together. 

We probably would have seen more romantic pictures from the couple if Lane hadn’t had his Instagram handle private. But it does seem that both want to keep their relationship low-key.
