Die Antwoord Stars Watkin Tudor Jones' Relationship Girlfriend Yolandi Visser
Watkin Tudor Jones has been dating Yolanda Visser for many years now. The two were close friends since their early adulthood.
Sources say that they got involved in a romantic relationship in 2006. It's the same year they welcomed their adorable daughter Sixteen Jones.
The couple wasn't initially ready to take the responsibility of a baby. Posting a video, Jones once stated that Sixteen was an accident, but a beautiful one.
Jones and Visser, however, have lots of care and affection towards their adorable daughter.
Sixteen is in a band called The Boy With the Rainbow Face with Flea (Michael Peter Balzary)'s daughter Sunny.
The proud mother explained,
"Sunny is the lead and Sixteen is the backup and writer. ‘She’s really good’.In keeping with rebellious-kid tradition, Sixteen is the opposite of her parents in that she can’t stand any foul language."
In 2010, Visser adopted a street kid named Tokkie. The nine-year-old child is from her neighborhood in Jo'burg. As his family was very poor, she decided to take care of him during the weekend that ultimately changed into full-time.
Yolandi once revealed about her maternal thing and said,
"I’ve always had that maternal thing; that connection with street kids and people who are misfits. I saw so much potential in Tokkie but I knew there was no hope for him on the street. No one’s gonna give a shit. Now he’s blossomed and become this enchanting boy."
Though Jones and Visser live a happy family life with their kids, they are yet to get married. We wonder when the lovely couple would tie the knot!
