Springboks captain and Cell C Sharks player Siya Kolisi and wife, Rachel is causing a storm on social media after recently sharing a snap painting Durban red.
The Port Elizabeth-born bulky player took to his Instagram page with his wife, Rachel, as they still adjust to their new city.
While many loved the image, captioned 'Exploring Durban tonight with Mamriristo @rachel_kolisi', some sounded hilariously jealous as they told the Rugby World Cup winner why did he not invite them.
The post has been liked more 15 000 times whilst managing to attract 75 comments from the lovely couple's fans.
“Was just there a few hours ago. Enjoy the best of the city.”
@ShayleenBadjies had a beautiful message for the lovebirds:
“Stay safe please and forever wear a mask, welcome to the Tegs_eThekwini.”
“My hometown, enjoy, I hope our beautiful KZN welcomed you with open arms.”
@TheUltimate_Queen looked stunned by the nickname given to Rachel:
"Mam who??? Mamriristo. We love you fam!"
@Nkothonono was disappointed he was left behind:
"Eish Bafo wangishiyelane? (Eeeish brother why did you leave me behind?)."
@Petz8101 seems to have a few nicknames at the back of her mind:
“MamRayray, MaRachana kwezondawo?”
Briefly.co.za recently reported that the former DHL Stormers player and his wife have become South Africa’s very own version of Keeping Up with the Kardashian…without all the drama.
From poking fun at each other on Instagram to inspiring a nation, South Africans love keeping up with the Kolisis.
While it was Siya who led the country into victory in the 2019 Rugby World Cup, his missus has become a powerhouse in her own right.
Rachel is seen by many as a supportive wife and dedicated mother, but she is also a successful businesswoman who is advocating for body positivity amongst women in South Africa.
