Who Is Rassie Erasmus Wife, Yolanda Erasmus? Married Like Kids
Rassie Erasmus is married to fellow South African lady Yolanda Erasmus.
The pair likes to keep their relationship private and has not revealed details about how they met or when they tied the knot.
From his Twitter, we can see that Rassie is highly professional and prefers to discuss his professional life more than his personal life.
However, according to Rugby World, the duo has been married for over 20 years and shares three daughters, including two teenage twins.
All three daughters once recorded a video message thanking World Rugby for making their dad’s suspension only two months long.
Rassie had been slapped with a 60-day ban from all rugby-related activities after the governing body reacted angrily to his 62-minute video where he ‘questioned’ the match official’s several decisions.
His kids were poking fun, saying, “We are so tired of him being at home, and we have received enough life lessons.” They were thanking the governing body for making the suspension short.
“My daughters seem happier than me to go back to work!!” Rassie also joked back.
In 2020, Rassie and his family contracted Covid-19. At one point, he and his wife were severely gravely ill. Fortunately, they were able to make a complete recovery.
The Erasmus family also has a pet dog named Frank. During his suspension, Rassie broke the internet with tweets and videos of his dance moves and Frank.
