Semone Skosan and her Springbok wing husband, Courtnall, have been involved in a scrum of a different sort lately – one involving nappies and naptimes.

We had such a fun day on set with her and little Courtnall Jordan, or CJ – as his parents call him, shooting our March cover for the print edition of Living and Loving.

Take a sneak peek behind the scenes at the cover shoot below:

5 things you didn’t know about the Skosans

Which baby products are your lifesavers?

CJ’s Twistshake pacifier, teething gel and wet wipes – lots and lots of wet wipes.

What’s your favourite place to hang out with CJ?

Home! If we do go out, it’s to pram-friendly places.

Your best source of advice?

YouTube. I got most of my advice from videos. I’ve even started my own channel to help moms like me.

How did you come up with CJ’s name?

We agreed on Courtnall because we are both passionate about leaving a legacy for the next generation. I’ve always loved the name Jordan.

What’s the worst advice you’ve received?

To rub brandy on CJ’s gums. It may work for some people, but it’s definitely not something I would do.
