Sport presenter, Mpho Maboi and Reneilwe “Yeye” Letsholonyane are serving us some real couple goals. The sports anchor and her bae aren’t in any rush to tie the knot but they’re already living the married life.
Mpho has previously admitted that dating a football player isn’t easy on anyone, even for her. She even compared it to dating a DJ as there are always rumors about them bringing home random girls but Mpho has learned not to worry about that kind of stuff.
It’s clear that sports is her first love – not only because she made a whole career out of it, but also because she is her footballer boyfriend’s number one fan. Mpho and Reneilwe have been together for a few years now, and though they probably cross paths often at work, the couple get pretty cosy when they get home.
Even though both are stars in their own right, they are also each other’s biggest cheerleaders, so these two are most definitely the perfect match. Working in the same field has really helped Reneilwe and Mpho’s relationship because they understand one another’s jobs and what each entails.
“I’ve always said that it helps to work in the same industry, especially the entertainment industry. It just makes life a little easier. When he is gone for like a week, you’re not automatically thinking he’s off with girls. I know exactly where he’s going, his coach knows me although I try and separate the two. His work is his work, my work is my work,” said Mpho in a previous interview with ZAlebs.
The couple are raising two children together; Keneilwe (from Reneilwe’s previous relationship) and their son Thato.
This must have been an awkward interview (pictured below), it’s so cute how shy Reneilwe still gets when Mpho interviews him. It must be nice to be dating someone who supports and understand your hustle as much as these two do.
