Although the actress has given us a glimpse of her husband by posting their wedding pictures, she is yet to reveal all the tidbits about his life. There are no details about his career pursuits or interests. However, from the pictures Tebogo shared, her husband is a very handsome and well-groomed gentleman. There have also been talks that he is about a year younger than his wife but that has not affected their relationship which has gotten stronger over the years.

Tebogo And Her Husband Decided Not To Have Kids

Unlike many couples especially African couples who would be thrilled to have a lot of kids once they are married, Tebogo and her husband seemed to have gone against the idea of becoming brooders. According to the actress, raising a child is a daunting task that requires ample time, as well as dedication to pull off successfully.

However, given her present status as an actress whose schedule is always busy, raising children will not fit into the picture with ease. Tebogo is also of the mindset that she can’t bring kids into the world and not cater to all their needs adequately hence her decision not to have any.

Although her husband has not come out to share his own opinion explicitly, it is assumed that the couple must have made the decision together. Besides, they had dated for several years before getting married and since they tied the knot in 2011, Tebogo’s husband has not shown any signs of being displeased with the fact that they are yet to have kids.

However, their lives are not totally void of the presence of someone to care for as the duo is surrounded by their nieces and nephews who they intend to shower with so much love and attention just as they would have done on their biological children.

Irrespective of her outlook on life, Tebogo Khalo has proved that whatever you prioritize and put your mind to doing is bound to succeed. She has no publicly known history of coming from a family of entertainers but her choices and sacrifices have helped her get along pretty well in the film industry.
