Who is Danielle de Villiers?


Danielle de Villiers is the wife of former South African cricketer, AB de Villiers. She is one of the most well-known faces in the wives and girlfriends community of cricketers. Her Instagram bio reads, “Co-owner and creator of @thefunroompretoria”, which is an indoor playground as well as a cafe where kids can play safely, creatively, and freely whilst their parents can catch a break, knowing that they are well looked after.


AB de Villiers’s wife is a social worker too. She has been a part of many charities. One of her most noted works includes her sing-off with fellow Aussie cricketer, Shane Watson during IPL 2016. The duo sang David Guetta’s song, Titanium to raise money for kids in need.

While AB de Villiers began flourishing on the cricket field, Danielle went on to complete her studies. The spark re-ignited at AB de Villiers’s brother’s wedding where he was bowled over after listening to her singing. They began to bond more after Danielle moved to Cape Town.
