Rachel’s got Covid-19, but that didn’t put a damper on date night for the Kolisis!

Siya Kolisi shared a photo of himself and two of the couple’s children sitting outside Rachel’s window as they shared a meal ‘together’ while Rachel is in quarantine. On Sunday, Rachel shared an emotional plea with South Africans to take the virus more seriously and to practise all the measures that have been put in place to curb the spread of the virus.

On Monday, Siya shared the same sentiments.

He also realised how much household responsibility Rachel carries, and he praised his wife for her incredible efforts. “I’ve picked up all the household responsibility and for the first time ever, realize what it’s been like when I go on tours. It’s not easy.”

Here’s his full message to fans and South Africans in general:

Date nights have changed a bit. It’s been a roller coaster experience, I tested negative which I’m incredibly grateful for! Seeing how hard it’s been for Rachel @rachel_kolisi has not been easy specially when I can’t physically be with her.

And it’s definitely taken a toll on the kids not having their Mom with us. I’ve picked up all the household responsibility and for the first time ever, realize what it’s been like when I go on tours. It’s not easy.

I know of so many people who are really suffering watching loved ones affected by Covid or they have physically been affected and want to remind us all it’s our responsibility to do everything we can to stop the spread. Thank you to all of the medical workers who are going above and beyond to care for our loved ones when we can’t.

Let’s continue to remember the seriousness of this virus and do everything we can to protect those around us.
