Jozi’s bursting with baby bumps

2011-10-22 21:37

Forget miniature dogs and big designer bags. Egoliwood’s A-listers are doing like their Hollywood counterparts and sporting baby bumps as their new fashion accessory.

The latest to join the growing number of celebutots-in-the-making is Rhythm City starlet Pam Andrews, who unveiled her growing tummy at this week’s GQ Awards in a tight-fitting grey mini dress.

“I am very excited and scared at the same time because I just don’t know what to expect,” said Andrews (27), who married Frenchman Cedric Thivlin three years ago.

She added that the soapie was “accommodating” her pregnancy but wouldn’t say if it would be included in the script.

“The producers have been really supportive. I do one or two scenes early in the day because they know I get morning sickness and get tired,” she said.

Now that she’s traded her sex pot image for mum-in-waiting, she joins the likes of singers Siphokazi Maraqana, Malaika’s Tshedi Mholo, Zonke Dikana, former Miss SA Joan Ramagoshi, model Rosette Mogomotsi and sports broadcaster Kass Naidoo, who are all expecting.

Mholo, who is expecting her second child, said she was “really excited” about her pregnancy. “Having a baby is always different.
 Whether it’s your third or fifth child, the feeling is always unique.

 It’s as if you are learning again and get taken up by the world of baby magazines, baby shows and baby shopping all over again,” she said.

Naidoo, our first local woman cricket commentator, who has a two year-old son, Daniel, said she hopes her latest addition will be a girl. “I love being a mum to my son; it brings out my sporty side. So it would be great to have a girl and experience that side of motherhood,” she said.

Andrews also has a vision of pink bows in the future. “I always pictured myself with a baby girl because I’ll get to share my knowledge of being a girl with her, and advise her against stupid decisions I made.

“I’ve even started buying girl stuff; that’s how much I want it to be a girl,” laughed the actress.
