According to reports in South African media, the couple have been spending a lot of time together since Kallis' retirement from Test cricket last year.
Rivalland, a winner of the 2011 edition of the Miss Earth SA pageant, accompanied Kallis to a sports awards function in South Africa earlier this year in one of their first public appearances together.
The couple have also indulged in some rounds of golf with Kallis' former teammate Mark Boucher at Plettenberg Bay, SA.
Though there is no official word coming from the couple yet, Kallis has tweeted quite a few pictures in the recent past giving ample indication that they are an item. In one of the pictures outside a lingerie store at a Dubai mall he wrote: "I can't look. Easter Sunday in Dubai Mall with my shopoholic girl @KimRivalland." The couple have even wished each other over Twitter on Valentine's Day (February 14).
Kallis is known to have pretty partners in the past. He previously dated former Miss South Africa 2002 Cindy Nell. Later, he was associated with Miss South Africa 2003 1st runner-up Marisa Eggli. After that, the all-rounder dated another pretty South African model Shamone Jardim, with whom he split last year.
