His father may be a member of the South African Springboks, but for little Elton Jantjies Junior – or just EJ – rugby is not something he is particularly fond of.

The first-born son of the Boks star – who recently courted controversy over his personal life – had a soccer-themed party to celebrate his seventh birthday.

And in pics posted on wife Iva Ristic’s Instagram pages, Elton Jantjies is also seemingly nowhere to be found.

Earlier this month, Elton and Springboks’ dietician Zeenat Simjee fuelled rumours that they were having an affair – allegations they both strongly deny.

Sharing pics of EJ on his birthday, Iva Ristic posted: “My baby turned 7 today! Can’t even remember life before you, my forever best friend. No matter how much I say I love you, I always love you more than that”.

In one clip, EJ is gifted a laptop, to which he becomes emotional. She added: “And yesss he really cried”.

The birthday party had a soccer theme and EJ showed off his love for his soccer idol Cristiano Ronaldo.

In several pics, EJ wears a Portugal football jersey which Cristiano’s number seven emblazoned across it. He’s is seen against a backdrop of soccer decor, and even a mini figurine of “CR7” as he is fondly known.

Elton Jantjies Senior did not post any pics of the celebration on his social media accounts.

Iva Ristic and her three sons with Elton are based in Tokyo, Japan, where he plays for the NTT Docomo Red Hurricanes.


Missing from the pics was dad Elton Jantjies, who has been keeping a low profile in recent weeks.

According to You, Elton was “booted out of” the Springboks squad after news of an alleged “affair” came to light.

The Boks played against Argentina’s Pumas in the Rugby Championship match at Kings Park in Durban. But whilst the Boks won the match 38-21, they ultimately lost the Rugby Championship title to New Zealand.

Elton Jantjies was not a part of the squad.
