Chad Le Clos’ girlfriend of more than three years, Jeanni Mulder reached the Top 5 of the prestigious Miss South Africa pageant this past weekend and the professional swimmer could not be more proud.
In an Instagram post dedicated to her, the swimmer wrote: “We are all so proud of everything you have achieved these last few months.” He also said: “Fills me with pride, top 5 Miss South Africa is an unbelievable achievement. You are Miss South Africa always. We all love you. The champ.”
In the photo he posted from the pageant, the couple both looked radiant in pastels. Jeanni Mulder, with her soft purple, see-through dress and Chad Le Clos looking dashing in a blush suit and white sneakers.
Jeanni Mulder took to Instagram on Sunday saying that she achieved something that a year ago, she thought would be impossible. “What an honour making top 5 at @official_misssa, alongside phenomenal women.”
She congratulated the new Miss South Africa, Lalela Mswane (24), saying: “My Lali, our new Miss South Africa 2021 – my OG roomie, I know your heart and I am so proud of you – you WILL change lives.”
The country’s new queen, Lalela Mswane had a busy first day yesterday, waking up to a hectic media schedule including a press conference with her fellow pageant contestants, runners-up Moratwe Masima (a qualified doctor from Midrand, Gauteng) and Zimi Mabunzi (a BCom Law degree student from eQonce in the Eastern Cape).
In addition to the press conference, Lalela Mswane, who graduated with a Bachelor of Law from the University of Pretoria also did a photoshoot and she attended an event for Brand SA.
At the press conference, she said: “My role now to encourage, to inspire, to give hope and to continue to work and build onto the legacies of Miss South Africa’s past. I intent to live by every word I have expressed and to serve, lead and represent our beautiful nation to the best of my abilities.”
She is clearly ready to take on the world and wears her Miss South Africa crown with absolute poise.
