Papa Penny welcomes 25th child, Penny Penny Jr

Johannesburg – Papa Penny is officially a father of 25. 

The reality star, who announced in February that his wife mama Nomi was pregnant with a baby boy, shared a snap of his bundle of joy on Instagram on Tuesday, simply writing: "#Ahee Penny Penny Jr." 

When news of Nomi's pregnancy first broke, the musician told The Juice that he would name his son Penny Penny Jr as a means of keeping his own name alive. "I want to see it in his ID at home affairs," he added. 

The 57-year-old also went on to say that Penny Penny Jr would probably not be his last child, telling us that 25 children is "still a small amount" compared to his father who had 68 kids.

In a chat with The Juice on Thursday, Papa Penny confirmed that both mama Nomi and the baby are healthy and happy.

"We will all be sharing a birthday next year," he said excitedly, explaining that both he and Nomi's birthdays are just days apart from that of his son and they're planning on having one big celebration.

For now, though, the star says they will have a small welcoming with family on Saturday. The formal welcoming ceremony will take place once the baby has turned a year old.
