Cape Town - Everyone appreciates a good love story.

The tabloids seemed to have been spot on about the love brewing between Isithembiso actress Nandi Mbatha and junior creative director of Quiteria Atelier, Mpho Motsi.

The two lovebirds have nothing more to hide. Nandi and Mpho met on the job and are still going strong.

"Nandi came to the Quiteria Atelier studio for fittings. We got talking and it turned out that we had a lot in common," Mpho tells Drum.

The sweethearts share their favourite things to do and their plans for this coming Valentine’s Day.

What is your ideal date night?

Mpho: An ideal date would be a chilled walk in the park breathing in the fresh air and having alone time. Once in a while, I like to go out for dinner or a movie, keeping it cute.

What do you enjoy doing together?

Nandi: Mpho was a basketball player and I used to play netball throughout high school. So we enjoy shooting hoops together. It tends to be a little competitive at times.

What are your plans for this coming Valentine’s Day?

Mpho: The coincidence is that we will be in the city of love, Paris, for a Quiteria Atelier fashion show where Nandi will be walking the ramp. This is almost like a story line from a romantic novel.
