Baby Burger on the way

2012-02-28 14:09

Cape Town - Stormers skipper Schalk Burger may be out injured for up to six weeks, but he has every reason to smile - he and his wife, Michele, are expecting their first child.

According to Tuesday's Argus newspaper, Burger’s agent, Megan Pieterse of ProSport International, said Michele was just more than 12 weeks pregnant.

The couple got married in Wellington in December last year.

Michele tweeted “Big day today”, after which a deluge of congratulatory Tweets poured in.

Top Billing presenter Jeannie D said she was excited for the Burgers. “Such an amazing time of your life! Truly a blessing! Congrats on these magic moments!” she tweeted.

Springbok wing Bryan Habana also wished the pair well, to which Michele replied: “Honeymoon it was? now your turn Habanas”.

      Maybe Michelle is destined to be South Africa's version of Mrs Whitelock from NZ? There are what 5 Whitelock brothers in the Crusaders setup? Imagine having 5 Burgers in the Stormers sqaud 20 years from now.......

    It's a pity (for SA rugby sake) that his wife isn't a 6'5" monster. Can you imagine!?

      Saffa - 2012-02-28 20:35

      Is Schalk allowed to breed?
