Rachel Kolisi excited to come back home – ‘We can’t wait’

Rachel and her family will be back in SA next week.

While the fitness instructor and influencer Rachel Kolisi and her kids are settling in well at their new home in France, she recently shared that she is looking forward to coming back home.

The Springboks’ captain Siya Kolisi’s wife said she and her family will fly back home next week for a family wedding.

“In 8 days, we’re on a plane home 🇿🇦 for a family wedding, and we can’t wait,” she wrote on Instagram.

Rachel also admitted that starting a new life in France was not easy.

She added: “9 weeks ago, we moved from Durban, South Africa to Paris, France. Challenging would be a MASSIVE understatement, but yesterday, the kids started their first half-term school holiday, and it felt like such a big accomplishment for all of us.”

In the comments section, many people applauded Rachel for supporting her husband in every way possible, including moving away from home.

One netizen wrote: “You are amazing Rachael, To follow Siya around the world with your entire family and siblings, learning new languages and new surroundings. Ensuring the kids continue their schooling, being a wife and a mother WOW YOU ARE AMAZING, and you do it with a smile on your face.”

Speaking after the match, Siya Kolisi said the hard work they have put in is paying off.
