Despite the smiles on their faces, Iva has made it clear that their romantic relationship with Elton Jantjies is over.

Speaking to News24 on Monday, she said: “This chapter of our lives has been dragging on for too long. I just want it to be done so we can all move on. I don’t think I will ever be romantically involved with Elton again.
