Girls, eat your hearts out. Free State Stars' captain Duncan Lechesa is taken and next month he will walk the beautiful Thobela FM news anchor, Kgadi Monama, down the aisle in what is set to be a glittering celebrity affair.

The wedding will take place in Mokopane, Limpopo, on February 24.

Lechesa, who also captained Castle Premiership club Black Leopards before joining Stars at the beginning of the season, paid ilobolo for Monama early last year.

The news reader has already assumed Lechesa's surname.

An excited Lechesa told Sowetan yesterday: "We can't wait for the big day on February 24.

"It has been my dream to get married and I'm happy that the time has arrived for me to be a husband," said Stars' linkman.

"I have been with Kgadi for a long time and I'm excited that she will be legally my wife. Getting married will make me a more disciplined person.

"It will also keep me focused on my football career," said Lechesa, who is popularly known as "King" in football circles.

Kgadi was also overjoyed yesterday.

"I love Duncan dearly and I don't have any doubt in my mind that he will be a good husband. He has proved to be a good partner and I can't wait to be his wife," she said.

The couple have a one-year-old daughter, Mokgabo.
