AB De Villiers and Danielle got hitched in March 2013 after dating each other for a long time. In 2015, they welcomed their first child; Abraham de Villiers. In 2017, their second son John de Villiers was born.
In the UAE at IPL 2020, De Villiers and RCB finished the league phase at fourth place and lost to SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the Eliminator. He played 15 matches, scoring 454 runs at a strike rate of 158.74. He also slammed five half-centuries with the help of 33 fours and 23 sixes.
De Villiers pulled out of the upcoming Big Bash League (BBL) 2020, and will currently be spending some time with his family.
Having announced his retirement from all forms of international cricket in 2018, De Villiers had made an attempt of making a comeback and recently announced in 2020 that he wanted to make a comeback for the T20 World Cup, which has now been postponed. It will be interesting to see if the 36-year-old represents his country in the future again.
