‘Greatest gift’: Eben Etzebeth’s wife celebrates baby girl’s milestone

Anlia Etzebeth, the wife of Springboks lock Eben Etzebeth, shared a new photo of their baby girl in celebration of her turning five months old.

Baby Etzebeth is officially five months old already. Eben and Anlia welcomed their first child together on 16 January. Anlia announced her pregnancy with a triple celebration as it was just after the Springboks became double World Cup Champions and her husband celebrated his birthday. Take a look…

“BLESSINGS upon BLESSINGS!🏆🎂☔️. Thank you Lord!🙏🙏. Well done Bokke & HAPPY BIRTHDAY my liefste man!!🥳❤️,” she wrote.


The baby girl, whose name has not yet been revealed, was born in Umhlanga, KwaZulu-Natal. Eben and Anlia currently live in KwaZulu-Natal as the Springboks star plays for The Sharks. Anlia took to Instagram to celebrate their baby girl turning five months old. Take a look…

“A whole 5 months old! 🥹 The BEST 5 months of our lives! Our greatest gift.. 🥰,” she wrote.

“Everything,” commented Eben Etzebeth.

Anlia and Eben tied the knot at the La Paris Estate in Franschhoek in the Western Cape in February 2023. The couple reportedly met through mutual friends in October 2021, in Cape Town’s Melkbosstrand, according to Woman & Home. Less than a year later, Eben popped the question and Anlia said yes!

“Die begin van die res van ons lewe. Ek wou nog nooit so graag die ja woord gehoor het nie. Jyt my die gelukkigste mens op die planeet gemaak,” he wrote. This translates to: The beginning of the rest of our life. I’ve never wanted to hear the ‘yes’ word so badly. You’ve made me the happiest man on the planet, in English.

After the pair tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony, they jetted off to the Maldives on a honeymoon. It seems the pair have just taken their little girl on a getaway last week. Take a look…

“Happy 1st Father’s Day!! You are the very best Daddy our little girl could ask for! Thank you for everything you do for our family.. Embarking on this chapter of parenthood with you is the most exciting, most fun thing ever! We love you and cherish you! Happy Father’s Day to all the daddios,” she wrote.
