- Atandwa and Fikile Kani married just a couple months after meeting on the set of It’s Complicated
- Fikile was accused of being a “home wrecker” at the time
- But, the happy couple's relationship stood the test of time and they now plan to start a family in the near future
After meeting on the set of It’s Complicated in 2017, Atandwa and Fikile Kani got engaged a couple weeks later in July. The wedding followed closely afterwards, with the couple getting married on Christmas Eve last year.
Even though they have been together for only a short time, this couple has really crawled into the hearts of South Africans. They display a fairy tale romance, posting humorous videos and just having a total blast together.
Despite the misunderstandings concerning Thembisa Mdoda, they have stood by one another’s sides and seem closer than ever. The allegation by media, labeling Fikile a “home wrecker”, has not broken the newly weds' stride.
"I never feel awkward about it because my focus is always on my marriage and love for my husband. What bugs me is how the media portrayed our union negatively, whereas there are so many positives to it," she said.
These allegations were made after Thembisa referred to Atandwa as her "ex-husband" in an interview on VUZU's The Cover. However, Fikile made it clear that Atandwa and Thembisa were never married and stated that Home Affairs will back her up.
Struggle to struggle, this couple grows strength to strength. The couple plan on starting a family soon with hopes of having three boys and one girl.
