The River actress Linda Mtoba recently announced her pregnancy after successfully keeping it private for months – and now, the mom-to-be is sharing her journey to motherhood with fans.

In a Twitter thread, ‘Mrs Husband’ as she is affectionately known, gushed over how supportive her husband and her family have been during her pregnancy.

“One thing I’d say pregnancy requires the most is support from all angles. My mom & makazi came to cook us Sunday dinner. My back was killing me today so there I was bent over in the kitchen when my little brother came and started rubbing it,” she wrote before revealing that her husband did some stretches with her as soon as he came home.

“It’s my coccyx that’s sore so it quite low in my bum, without a thought I told my brother where it’s sore and he gently rubbed me before him makazi had just done it whilst cooking. My husband came home and we did some stretches together.”

And just when we thought the 27-year-old couldn’t possibly receive more support than she already had, she revealed how her in laws don’t allow her to lift a finger.

“I’m literally passed hand to hand to make sure I’m ok, and that’s my life everyday. Yesterday I was with my 2nd family I only got up to wee, if they could do it for me I’m pretty sure they would. Support & love,” she wrote.
