While Siya Kolisi’s on the cusp of a major career move as he prepares to leave the Stormers and Western Province after 11 years, to possibly join the Sharks, the rugby superstar scored on the romance front with his Happy Valentine’s Day message to wife Rachel Kolisi.
The Springbok captain shared a photograph of the couple during a beach vacation with a cute caption that read: “My Valantyontyo.”
The message was accompanied by a heart emoji to signify his love for his wife, and folded hands as an expression of gratitude to the love of his life.
To which Mrs Kolisi replied with heart emojis.
The pair met at a dinner party in Stellenbosch back in 2012.
They started off as friends but the young beauty had won Kolisi’s heart, and he asked her out.
“I knew I liked her and had to tell her,” said Kolisi.
He added: “It was scary. I asked her to lunch and that’s when I told her. She played hard to get in the beginning but eventually admitted it as well.
“The rest is history. We have a beautiful family and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with her.”
The couple, who tied the knot in 2016, share two children: son Nicholas Siyamthanda and daughter Keziah.
The Kolisi's have since become Mzansi’s favourite couple.
In 2020, the duo were crowned the country’s most stylish couple at the SA Style Awards in Sandton.
