- Siya Kolisi took to Instagram to share the sweetest message to his wife, Rachel
- The two have always supported each other in whatever life has thrown at them thus far, which is why the Springbok captain took the time out to share this appreciation post
- Fans enjoyed the couple's loved-up moment
Springbok captain Siya Kolisi posted the sweetest message to his supportive wife, Rachel, which had fans tearing up.
According to ZAlebs, Siya and Rachel have come a long way in their marriage. The couple began dating when Siya has just begun his professional career in rugby and was still relatively unknown.
Together the couple have faced major hurdles in their “interracial” marriage, from nasty racist comments, finding and adopting Siya’s younger siblings, constantly blasting trolls on social media and navigating their life in public, as most celebrities do.
Siya shared a momentous snap of the two of them at the South African Sports Awards recently and wrote: “I love you @rachel_kolisi Thanks for always being there for me, believing in me and pushing me to be the best I can be.”
Siya's Instagram post gathered 91.2k likes and 26 comments. Most of his followers, including a few Mzansi celebs, commended the couple for always supporting and building each other up.
Here are a few comments:
nandi_madida: "My couple"
skosan14: "This is everything!"
zintathu: "Ahhhhhhh get a room you two."
digitalsangoma: "You one lucky man my brother, embrace and enjoy."
linz_brown: " So much love and respect for you two, so glad that you are guys are home and reunited fam."
tpienaar: "Only got love for these two."
vim_masiyiwa: "My peoples, so beautiful!"
Here are a few tweets from fans who really admire Rachel for all she is and has done for her family and Siya.
It was amazing to see that Rachel also predicted Siya bringing home the Web Ellis trophy earlier this year. Rachel revealed that she had faithfully marked her calendar for SA’s matches in the Rugby World Cup final and had only booked her flights home afterwards.
Rachel also led a prayer group, along with other WAGS, which carried the Boks to the finals.
Meanwhile earlier this week, Briefly.co.za reported that photographs of Springbok captain, Siya Kolisi, and his stunning wife, Rachel, at an event had gone viral.
According to ZAlebs, the couple were pictured cosying up at the South African Sports Awards, which took place on Sunday evening in Durban.
Instead of tweeps showing their appreciation for the charming couple, they mocked Siya for his scruffy, unshaven face and untidy hair.
