Cape Town - Former Proteas skipper Graeme Smith and his partner, Romy Lanfranchi, have confirmed they are expecting a baby in early 2017.
Graeme, 35, who has a daughter (four) and a son (three) with estranged wife Morgan
Deane, and Romy, 37, who has two sons, have been together since the
beginning of the year.
According to a statement released by the couple, they are “delighted
about the prospect of being parents again and having a future together.”
The couple, who were introduced through mutual friends, have been dating since the beginning of the year after Smith and Deane separated at the end of 2014.
Lanfranchi has two sons, aged eight and six, whom she had with her late husband, Michel Lanfranchi, who died of a brain haemorrhage in August 2013.
Smith played 117 Tests, 197 ODIs and 33 T20I for South Africa before retiring in March 2014.
