Cape Town - The joy on his face when he told the world that he's expecting is priceless.

Former Springbok and Stormers loose forward Nizaam Carr recently took to Instagram to announce that he and his wife Aa'esha are going to be parents.

"When you find out your wife is expecting a baby boy," he wrote, punctuating his post with a baby emoji and hearts.

The couple celebrated their third wedding anniversary last year.  

"Three years of love and laughter, ups and downs, success and failure, but most importantly it’s been three years of growth! I love you endlessly," Aa'esha wrote on Instagram.

The lovebirds tied the knot in a traditional Muslim ceremony at the Masjidul Quds in Gatesville on December 13, 2015.

"The happy couple spent hours taking pictures across Cape Town before their modest wedding reception, which was held at Oaklands High School hall in Lansdowne," IOL reported.

In a YouTube video, Nizaam says it wasn't easy dating his then girlfriend because of her father being "very hectic".

"I had to beg for a lot of things just to see her," he recalled. "But he eventually gave in."

He took her up the mountain the day he popped the question, he said.

"At that time, she asked me for some water and the water was in my bag, so I couldn't give her the water because she was going to see the flowers and think that something is really up," he said.

About 10m from his perfect spot he ran ahead of her.

"I told her that I was going to take a few pictures."

Meanwhile, he set up the spot with pebbles, roses and other stones.

"I sort of made an arrow pointing towards me and I was on my one knee.

"She came up and saw me and without me asking, she just said, 'yes, yes, I'll marry you'."

He says he's happy he made that decision.

"No rugby match, no try, no tackle can be compared to this," he once said about the day he married his wife.

Wasps re-signed Nizaam on a permanent contract last year.

The 27-year-old is said to be the first Muslim to have captained a Super Rugby side, and to play for the Springboks.
