Stormers rugby player Schalk Burger and his wife, Michele, are expecting their second child! Earlier this week Michele shared a picture of the baby scan on her Instagram page, saying ‘‘Sweet little foot scan of boy no 2 – almost a family of 4 Eeek.”

Michele has just confirmed the good news to YOU. “We’re very excited. We’ve known for a while. I’m about 20 weeks pregnant now and it’s a boy again. Schalk is of course much more excited than me that we’re expecting a boy again,” she said laughing. “I’m just mad about little boys!” The couple’s firstborn, Schalk Jnr, is 15 months old and they’re planning to further expand their family. “We’d love to have a little girl. Everyone says we should wait and see until we have two and then decide. So we’ll first see how things go with two children.”’

'We’ve known for a while. I’m about 20 weeks pregnant now and it’s a boy again.'
Three months ago the Burgers moved to a bigger home in Newlands, Cape Town. “It’s an old Victorian house that’s 110 years old. It’s taken us seven months to renovate it,” said Michele, an interior designer and decorator who works from home. Schalk’s teammates are clearly equally excited about the news of their pregnancy. After Michele’s scan was posted on Instagram, Juan de Jongh responded, “Classs man!! Schalla has too much time on his hands #preSeasonMustStart #Haha’’, to which Michele said, ‘‘Yayaya ha ha before I have four children;)’’. Schalk and Michele celebrate their second wedding anniversary next month. Congratulations to you both!

Here are a few pictures of the family Michele shared on Twitter and Instagram.
