Photos: Karlien van Jaarsveld Got Hitched Behind Our Backs


While we are still trying to figure out how she pulled this off, it has been confirmed that Afrikaans singer Karlien van Jaarsveld is now a married woman.

The singer reportedly got married to her Rugby player heartthrob Joe Breytenbach in a secret ceremony. Apparently, the couple who announced their engagement in September last year forgot to announce their wedding as well.

Thus, there was confusion after Karlien posted a collage of pictures on Instagram of what appears to be her wedding day.

“Today I can tell you with abundance and gratitude – Never give up on love,” she wrote on Instagram.

Vandag kan ek met oorgawe en soveel dankbaarheid vir jou sê – moet nooit opgee op die liefde nie. Xxx

Subsequently, fans inundated her with congratulatory messages on the news and on her special day. And while some thought the big day happened this past weekend, Karlien took to the comments section to set the record straight. She said that she did not get married this weekend because she was busy at work. Moreover, in a second comment posted she explained to curious fans that she was “already married.”

However, her comments did not give fans the satisfaction they needed as they thought Karlien was just kidding. They just couldn’t believe that Karlien who is a media sensation did not share news of her wedding with her fans.

Meanwhile, her mother and former manager, Ronel Brink, has since confirmed that Karlien van Jaarsveld and Joe Breytenbach are now married. Nevertheless, they didn’t provide us with further details on how they tied the knot.

Following Karlien’s announcement about her wedding on social media, her mother took to Twitter to share a message of love; “Love is beautiful. Karlien and Joe.”

So far, we are still at sea about when and where the lovebirds got hitched, but we do know that they’ve gone official.
