Singer Bucie has been keeping a low profile after getting married and giving birth to her second child. Now the doting mom is sharing how difficult both pregnancies were.

Speaking on Fresh Breakfast on Metro FM, the 31-year-old opened up about motherhood and how much she appreciates her children after having experienced complications while expecting them.

“I am pro-breastfeeding but unfortunately I never got to breastfeed either of my kids,” she revealed.

“There were complications when I had my firstborn son, who I had when I was 18, so I couldn’t. I had my second one, uAphiwe, at six-and-a-half months – he was premature,” Bucie said.

According to reports, the singer is expecting her third child and although she hasn’t confirmed the news she told DJ Fresh the reason she is keen on being a mother again is because she has cute babies.

“I’ve got such cute babies so it’s like I want to see what the next one will look like,” a blushing Bucie said.

When asked why she decided on the name Aphiwe, the Easy to Love hitmaker explained that Aphiwe was a miracle baby.

“There were complications to the point where doctors thought if they kept him still, ’cause my water broke very early so they tried to buy time to 30 or 31 weeks, and if he stayed in tummy for another day we were both going to die – or one of us wouldn't make it. So he is a miracle.”
