Soccer star Itumeleng Khune has been known as a bit of a player over the years but it looks like he is finally ready to settle down.
The Kaizer Chiefs star is set to marry his girlfriend, Sphelele Makhunga.
It’s unclear when the lovers got engaged but, judging by Sphelele’s Instagram page the couple has already had their lobola negotiations.
“16.11.2019. Thank You @itukhune32,” she captioned a picture of herself draped in a blanket that is typically worn by a “makoti”.
Sphelele added a cow, an engagement ring and heart emojis to the caption.
Itu is yet to post anything about their engagement or lobola on his social media platforms. He likely paid a pretty penny for the model.
In 2014, several news reports claimed that the goalkeeper paid R1 million for his now ex-girlfriend Minnie Dlamini.
They both denied the reports.
Itu and Sphelele went public with their romance in April – a few months after he broke up with Sbahle Mpisane.
Many believed that Sphelele was Itu’s side chick, but she set the record straight in a Q&A on her Instagram page in June.
“We once dated for a year, broke up, remained as friends and now it’s been 3/4 months since we got back together,” she wrote.
When a fan asked her if she was engaged, Sphelele replied: “Eish nah boo, not yet! But VERY SOON.”
There is also speculation that Sphelele is pregnant with Itu’s child.
A picture doing the rounds on social media shows the footballer rubbing her stomach.
What appears to be a tiny baby bump is visible.
