The marriage is blessed with two children, two sons whose names are unknown to date.

Belinda Wiese Nearly Lost Kobus Wiese in 2021 to Heart Failure
The Wiese family suffered an incident that threatened to disrupt their family. In April 2021, Kobus suffered a heart attack and was rushed to the Panorama Clinic in Cape Town where he underwent a procedure to have an intravascular stent inserted into a narrow vein in his heart. The operation was successful and Kobus has since made a full recovery.
The incident was a big scare for Kobus, his family, and his former teammates who have seen the deaths of some of their Springbok 1995 teammates, including Frank Ruben Kruger, Joost Westhuizen, Chester Williams, and James Small.
The current heart condition of Kobus Wiese is unknown but reports have indicated that he has recovered and continues to be under strict surveillance since the heart attack happened. Also, there have not been any reported cases of him having another heart failure so it is safe to assume that he is in good health albeit managing it closely.
In the same vein, credit also needs to be given to his wife Belinda Wiese who has been with him throughout the entire period looking after him, as well as their kids and ensuring that their family matters don’t get dragged into the media as they have always avoided such ever since they became a couple that caught the media eye.

Is Kobus Wiese Related to Cobus Wiese?
Cobus Wiese introduced himself as a 19-year old to the rugby scene in 2016 during an under-20 game playing for the Stormers. This started speculations that he may be related to the rugby great, Kobus Wiese. Unfortunately, fans’ curiosity has never been satisfied as the duo has never really come out to confirm whether they’re related or not. This made it clear that their names may have been just a coincidence and nothing more. However, Kobus has a younger brother named Jasper Wiese and he is a first-class player for SARU.
