Franco is part of the Rugby World Cup squad, currently in France. The national team will play against Romania in South Africa’s second Rugby World Cup match on Sunday, 17 September.

Fate, however, would bring them back together. “They kept bumping into each other; it just seemed destined to be. One night, he bought her coffee, they braaied marshmallows over a candle, he told her he loved her – and they’ve been inseparable ever since”, the magazine TV show reported.

The couple would later tie the knot in a glamorous wedding in 2016. Seven years and three children later, the couple are still blissfully in love.

“You give me butterflies….that look”, Juanri gushed over a recent clip of Franco Mostert wearing his Springboks kit.
