Charlie Teo, a Sydney neurosurgeon, could soon be trading in his scrubs to get a wedding suit after posting social media posts that hinted that he had recently been engaged to Traci Griffiths.
The couple met when Ms Griffiths sought Dr Teo’s expert advice in 2009, although they did not begin dating until 11 years later after the brain surgeon split from his wife.
For more than a year, wedding rumours have been circulating about the well-known surgeon. However, it seems that there may be some truth behind the whispers.
Ms Griffiths, a vegan activist, and fitness influencer, used revealing hashtags in photos of the couple to hint about the change in their relationship status.
The former model has consistently tagged photos of her and Dr Teo with references to “#myhero” and “#mybestfriend” during their relationship, but she upgraded the hashtags in May to “#myfiance” and “#ilovemyfiance”.
The revelations are hidden in a number hashtags attached to photos taken by Ms Griffiths at Charlie Teo Foundation Ball over two months ago.
June brought more engagement hints with photos of the couple dressed up as Great Gastby for a birthday party.
Photos from the night are captioned with the same fiance hashtags and a nod to Dr Teo’s paperboy outfit.
Ms Griffiths dropped the tantalizing suggestions but has remained silent on the subject of their relationship.
The animal activist hasn’t posted any further photos of the couple on her social media accounts and there have been no more revealing hashtags.

These are the exciting hints that Dr Teo has given us. He took a break from his work as neurosurgeon following complaints from colleagues.
Dr Teo was banned from performing high-risk operations by the Medical Council of NSW in August 2021. He had to get written approval from another independent neurosurgeon.
These restrictions will continue to be in effect until the end of next month.
Before the review of his medical practices was completed, Dr Teo had earned his reputation operating on patients with inoperable or incurable brain cancers.
