Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune and his wife, Sphelele Makhunga are expecting their first child together.  

Itu reportedly paid lobola for his bride in November. 

The expecting mother first shared a glimpse of her growing belly on Christmas day on Instagram, to which Itu responded, saying: "Wifey bear."

The couple affectionately goes by the nickname "The Bears".

Ringing in the new year, Sphelele wrote on Instagram: "This has indeed been a confusing year for me. However, I'm grateful for its ups and downs. Found a hubby and we are now expecting which this was something I never expected."

The soccer player commented on the photo of his glowing wife, writing: "mine." 

The couple's relationship was marred with controversy in 2019 when Itu went public with the romance, only a few months after professing his love to ex-girlfriend Sbahle Mpisane - who was still in recovery following a near-fatal car accident.  

In her latest Instagram photo, Sphelele shows off her bump, wearing a bikini on the beach.
