Before they got married in a glamorous ceremony, Meyer was the ideal boyfriend, wooing Linda every opportunity he had. The couple had two lavish wedding ceremonies in 2017 – events that many still speak fondly of.

Years ago, Steven Meyer was kidnapped in the KwaZulu-Natal area of and robbed and then dumped in the boot of his car.

Linda Mtoba, who’s fondly called Mrs Husband, had a child with Meyer back in 2019. She calls her daughter Bean, and the public has taken to calling her the same. However, the Isibaya actress has been criticized for still breastfeeding her daughter.

In response to her critics, she had directed them to the WHO, which recommend that mothers breastfeed their children until they’re at least 2 years old. However, she said baby Bean is only 15 months old, and she’d stop breastfeeding only when she thinks her baby is ready for that.
