THEY act in one of Mzansi's top soapies, Scandal!, but their characters have nothing to do with each other.
However, in real life Hungani Ndlovu and Stephanie Sandows are known to be as thick as thieves and happily in love.
In fact, they are so head over heels with each other that rumours of their engagement have begun swirling around. The rumours of the couple’s impending nuptials have been confirmed by sources close to them.
“They are engaged, but don’t want people to know about it. They are keeping it to themselves for now. I know Hungani specifically doesn’t want it in the media because he values his privacy. So, this is why he prefers keeping the news of his engagement a secret,” said one source.
According to another informant, the pair has been together for some time now and feels this is the right time to take their relationship to the next level.
Said the mole: “They are comfortable with each other, which is why they are not afraid to post pictures of each other on social media. Most importantly, they trust each other because they have known each other for a while. They obviously love each other. So naturally, an engagement was another step for them. Although further details of the wedding have not been discussed, the couple is looking forward to their big day. They are obviously looking forward to the day they become husband and wife.”
A third insider told the SunTeam: “Stephanie loves Hungani and he loves her in return. They both want their big day to be well-planned and to pan out exactly the way they envisioned it.”
When called for comment, Hungani told Sunday Sun: "I’m not ready to talk about this now, maybe in a few months’ time.”
Stephanie was not available for comment.
Publicist for Scandal!, Matodzi Mashau, said Stephanie didn’t want to comment on the issue.
