The oldest son of rugby player Schalk Burger and his wife, Michele, celebrates his second birthday today.

The oldest son of rugby player Schalk Burger and his wife, Michele, celebrates his second birthday today. This morning Michele shared a cute picture of Schalk Jr on Instagram with a special birthday message: “Happy 2nd Birthday to this incredible boy! So proud to be your mommy.” She also shared a picture of father and son exploring the streets of Japan. Isn’t little Schalk Jr just the image of his dad? Schalk and Michele’s youngest son, Nicol, is four months old. Earlier this month the family left for Japan, where the Stormers and Springbok flank will spend two years playing for Japanese club Suntory Sungoliath.

It looks as if the couple and their boys are adapting well to their new life in Japan. Michele regularly shares photographs of their life there. Michele and Schalk have been for an interview at a school, braaied beside a river, taken selfies in Tokyo and spent time with rugby player Dewald Potgieter – who is also playing rugby in Japan – and his girlfriend Freda Louw. Seems they’re enjoying themselves enormously!

"Ready for take off ?? Farewell SA," Michele captioned this shot.

"This is the sweetest - staring out the window excited to meet the new class mates #schoolinterview," Michele posted yesterday.
