“On top of all of this he (Siya) teaches him (Nic) great push up form. Bra, you're the best?” Rachel wrote.

These days Rachel is managing a guest house in Camps Bay, Cape Town.

Siya and Rachel, who married in August last year, were recently the victims of racists, but they didn’t let the cyber bullies get them down. “I’m not angry or upset with the person [who posted the hate-fuelled tirade on Facebook],” Siya recently told YOU. “If that’s what they think, what can I do? I don’t let it affect me. We’re very happy at home. I think some people are scared of the future and changes in life. People are moving forward. And I can’t help that I love Rachel.”
