Actor and musician Wandile Molebatsi and his wife Jessica are expecting their first child.

Molebatsi is currently on South African screens as Sakhumzi in the SABC1 drama series Kowethu.

City Press spotted Molebatsi and his beautiful, glowing wife at the launch of the Essence of Africa magazine on Thursday at Joburg’s Sandton Sun Hotel.

Jessica wore a stylish grey tunic top which showed off her baby bump.

The father-to-be said: “We are excited – it’s our first child and everyone around us is happy.”

They are also both a little nervous, he admitted, since they’re both first-time parents.

“After we got married last year, we travelled a lot and our plan was to have a baby afterwards,” he said.

They wouldn’t say whether they’re expecting a boy or a girl, but Jessica confessed that in her second trimester she’s seriously craving ice-cream.

“Jessica came into my life at the right time. I’m ready to be a dad,” said Molebatsi.
