Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana footballer, Thembinkosi Lorch has had tongues wagging for a good two weeks now.
The star has sudden become very desirable to a lot of women since making headlines for being in a relationship with former Skeem Saam actress, Natasha Thahane.
Not only has the footballer peaked the interest of women, he has peaked the interest of men too — especially those who have been crushing on his actress girlfriend and somehow thought that they had a chance with her. This is probably why an old image of him has surfaced and people are laughing out loud at his glow-up.
Take a look at the his before and after snaps placed side by side. If that isn’t ‘glow-up of the century, they we don’t know what is.

Social media has been abuzz since evidence emerged that Orlando Pirates footballer Thembinkosi Lorch and former Skeem Saam actress Natasha Thahane are the newest hot celebrity couple.
The rumours of the pair being romantically involved were fuelled by several pictures that they have posted, suggesting that they have been spending a lot of time together.
The one image that started all the commotion, sees Natasha in Zanzibar in a sexy orange bikini. The shades she had on sold her out because one Twitter user zoomed in and spotted the Orlando Pirates striker. Shortly after, the footballer posted an image of himself in the same location. More and more pictures of the two personalities emerged and it was very clear that they were together in Zanzibar and probably on vacation. What added fuel to the dating sparks was their wrist bands, which were exactly the same.
At first, Lorch denies dating Natasha. In the video on IG Live, Maphorisa upfated Lorch on the latest gossip involving him, wanting to know if he is romantically involved with the actress. The football player responded by asking “what do I have to do with Natasha?” This was when the amapiano producer then told him how the rumours were fuelled, even telling him about the identical wrist bands. But in all of that, Lorch vehemently denied dating Natasha in the video. In fact, the star pretended to not even know who Natasha was.
However, the very next day, the Orlando Pirates footballer could not hold his affection in and posted a picture of Natasha Thahane. The star decided to keep his caption short: “beke le beke [week in week out]” followed by a heart emoji. Natasha also followed suit and took to her Instagram stories to share a video of her soccer star bae and a snap of them together.
