Springbok captain Siya Kolisi and his wife, Rachel, are possibly Mzansi's favourite celebrity couple – and their love story still warms our hearts.

Siya and Rachel, who met back in 2012 in Stellenbosch, have been married for four years. They have a big, beautiful blended family: firstborn, son Nicholas Siyamthanda, daughter, Keziah, as well as Siya's half-siblings Liyema and Liphelo, whom they've adopted.

Like most relationships, they've had highs and lows, but they've stuck together – and the 28-year-old rugby ace continues to remind his lovely wife how head-over-heels in love he still is.

Here are some of our favourite Siya-Rachel social-media moments:

He sometimes writes his open love letters to Rachel on social media in his home language, Xhosa.

"Thank you for believing in me and challenging me to be better vah! Don't get tired nono!" Siya captioned his post.

"Smatsatsa sam! Every time I think about you my heart goes June-July, I don't know why. Every time I kiss you I think 'hmmm, that was nice'. We love you, we appreciate you, happy Mother's Day."

Most recently, Siya recalled a special moment at an event when Rachel kept asking him if they could go home.
