While Natasha Joubert keeps her relationship fiercely private, her partner Enrico Vermaak is loud and proud about their romance.

Here’s what we know…

Teen sweethearts

Natasha and Enrico – a project manager – began dating as early as 2015, when she was just 18 years old.

He captioned their first pic as a couple: “You make me happy.” Natasha replied: “I could say the same.”

He’s supportive and proud

Enrico has been aware and supportive of Natasha’s pageant dreams, including being Miss SA.

Ahead of her first stint at the Miss SA competition in 2020, Enrio shared: “You have dreamt about today since the day I met you, and today is your day.

And Enrico supported his brunette bae’s decision to re-enter the pageant. Before Sunday night’s crowning, he posted: “I can’t wait to see you shine even brighter. You’re not just a contestant. You’re one of the most inspiring women I know. Rooting for you always!”

There’s no mistaking that Enrico is smitten with his Miss SA spouse.

Natasha Joubert’s blonde and blue-eyed boyfriend has shared captions like: “You are beautiful,” “I am mad about you,” and “My best friend, my soul-mate, the mother of my three dogs and forever life partner.”


It’s not uncommon for many Miss SA winners to tie the knot shortly after their reign ends. 

“I want to marry you one day,” Natasha said in a comment back in 2016.

After ticking off Miss SA, could marriage be next on her bucket list?
