Bokang Montjane and Siphiwe Tshabalala are definitely one of Mzansi’s most loved couples. Bokang sat down with Khanyi Mbau on her talk show Katch it with Khanyi and opened up about Siphiwe, the man she fell in love with and the man who ultimately became her baby daddy.
When word first got out that the pair were together, we just couldn’t get over it. It would be safe to say we were kinda stalking them, just for any glimpse of a pic of the two of them together. But that proved difficult, because of just how private they were about their relationship.
Since welcoming their son Olwethu though, they are much more open, and we just love them!
Bokang shared with Khanyi about how she met Siphiwe, back in 2011.
“We met for the first time at Kaya FM in 2011. Siphiwe was leaving the station after an interview and I was arriving for mine. We ended up taking pictures together because he asked for one, and then when he asked for my number I refused,” Bokang explained.
It seems Siphiwe had to be sleek in getting her numbers, because she admits that when he asked for them, she refused.
“Yes he stole my numbers. He asked the people at Kaya FM who obviously refused, but after much begging and pleading, Siphiwe managed to get my number,” she told Khanyi.
She added that she saw Siphiwe for what he is, and not for the soccer player that everyone sees.
“People are afraid of dating soccer players because they are considered to be players. Yes, he’s a public figure and a lot more women throw themselves at him, but I fell in love with Siphiwe, not the soccer player,” she added.
Just 4 weeks ago, she wrote a beautiful message to Siphiwe, as it was his birthday. Part of her message to Siphiwe read:
“I’m glad you kept pursuing me for so long till I agreed hahahaaa… Look at us now blessed beyond measure”, read the rest of her heartwarmig message here.
What a beautiful love story theirs is . . . we can’t wait until Siphiwe puts a ring on it!!
