Christi dedicated an Instagram post to her husband, writing: "We've tackled this world as a team for 18 years, and today is our 12th Wedding Anniversary. (sic)"
She added: "This is it bub; our dream ie growing old together is coming true, slowly but surely. You are a blessing in God's Kingdom, a true Gentleman, a (closet) stand-up comedian, a wealth of knowledge and wisdom, a philanthropist, a talented artist, a born entertainer, a phenomenal provider, a silly playful but crazily respected Super-Dad, and mostly, a man of honour. Thank you for choosing me.(sic)"
The couple first met at drama school in 1998 and later starred alongside each other in the Afrikaans soapie, 7de Laan.
Christi and Nico share two children together, Eva and Shay.
