Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune and his wife, Sphelele Makhunga are in cloud nine, as they are expecting their first child together.
Itu said to have had paid lobola for his bride in November last year and the two are happy to be expecting the first fruit of their love.
The excited expecting mother started it all by posting a glimpse of her growing belly on Christmas day on Instagram, to which Itu quickly commented, saying: "Wifey bear."
The couple affectionately goes by the nickname "The Bears".
Crossing over to the other side, the new season, in the new year 2020, Sphelele wrote on Instagram:
"This has indeed been a confusing year for me. However, I'm grateful for its ups and downs. Found a hubby and we are now expecting which this was something I never expected."
The soccer player again, couldn’t be silent feeling the pride of becoming a dad, he commented on the photo of his glowing wife, writing: "mine."
Meanwhile, the two lovebirds' relationship was dogged by controversy in 2019 after Itu went public with the romance, just a few months after confessing that he was still in love with ex-girlfriend Sbahle Mpisane – who was still on the mend recovering from injuries she sustained following a near-fatal car accident.
In her latest Instagram photo, Sphelele happily shows off her bump, wearing a bikini on the beach.
