Cape Town - Entertainer Bontle Modiselle is a new mom and she’s opening up about the difficulties she had before finally carrying her daughter Afrika to full-term.
The 30-year-old danced her way through her pregnancy – even doing choreography at events.
She also tied the knot in beautiful ceremony with her long-time partner, Priddy Ugly.
Bontle was hailed a superwoman, but little did her fans know what it took for the media personality to get to the point where she could carry her first baby to full-term with little complications.
In a recent post on her Instagram page, she opened up about previously suffering two miscarriages and having a difficult pregnancy.
"Brace yourself. I know my pregnancy journey looked easy. My approach was deliberate. Intentional! I made certain to dance my way through it. To have someone inspired to see and feel pregnancy differently was a goal," she wrote.
"However, my difficulties never made it to the socials. Someday, I'll fill you in on the insecurities, the psychological, emotional, physical and spiritual hurdles I went through following the two miscarriages I had before the successful birth of my baby Afrika. I'll speak openly about the fears that challenged me and had me asking myself if I would ever be woman enough to create and carry life through."
"But for now, I want to remain and bask in the glory of not being a victim of what once hurt me immensely but being the victor of the mommy I am. Talk about God's will being done in God's perfect time. So....Bring on the swelling, discoloration, the stretch marks, soft spots & cellulite. I'm not immune. Let me have a field day with the sleepless nights, the countless nappy changes and random cries trying to figure out what she needs. Let me fall in love with the newer imperfections my body has inherited. These are the vain concerns I'd trade in any day for my baby, who I now get to stare at, hold, kiss and love unconditionally. This image is Day 10 of my post-partum and we still take it a day at a time...with greater intent. The approach remains the same - go into each day with courage, with love, resilience and knowing that I am able! I will continue to dance through it all. New mommies, despite your difficulties, I encourage you to do the same - simply because WE ARE ABLE [sic]," she added.
In a post she shared earlier this year, the 30-year-old personality penned a love letter to her body, acknowledging the pain it has been through and promising to take better care of herself in 2019.
