Speaking to Channel24 TV and radio personality Pearl Modiadie has confirmed that she is pregnant.

Sunday World first reported the news, saying that the actress was six months pregnant with her first child.

About how far along she is in her pregnancy, Pearl's PR team told Channel24: "Reports about how far along she is are inaccurate, and she prefers not to share this information."

According to her PR team, the Metro FM host was not ready to go public, when the news of her pregnancy broke, although she was planning to share the news "at a later stage." 

"She's appreciative of the well wishes already coming through but has decided to embrace this moment privately with her partner, family and very close friends for now," the statement continued.
