Gabisile also used the opportunity to announce her new campaign aimed at addressing employee discrimination, particularly against pregnant women.

She chose to use her story of being shamed for getting pregnant as an actress, and the stories of many other women, to highlight that pregnant women across the world are regularly treated less favourably due to their pregnancies or intended pregnancies.

The mom of two recently took to Instagram to pen a heartfelt message, quoting a verse from the Bible to her new baby boy as she introduced him to the world.

“Hear, my son, your father's instruction, and forsake not your mother's teaching, for they are a graceful garland for your head and pendants for your neck,” she wrote.

The former Scandal! actress further added that as she introduces her son to the world, she wants him to be exactly the person God intended him to be.

“As I introduce you to the world, where you are coming to make a difference, to be exactly what God intended for you to be, I'm reminded of the story below.”

She also reveals that the pregnancy was not easy, but she endured because she was excited to meet her son.

"It wasnt the easiest of pregnancies but I did not despair, I waited patiently for my king to arrive, and now he is here. Shhhhh , did you hear that? The sound of a KING landing, he is going to be GREAT, he is going to be a LEADER, the HEAD and not the tail and a respected MAN. The world was never ready," she wrote.

Proverbs 1:8-9 "Hear, my son, your father's instruction, and forsake not your mother's teaching, for they are a graceful garland for your head and pendants for your neck". As I introduce you to the world, where you are coming to make a difference, to be exactly what God intended for you to be, I'm reminded of the story below. An elephant and a dog became pregnant at the same time. Three months down the line, the dog gave birth to six puppies. Six months later the dog was pregnant again, and nine months on it gave birth to another dozen puppies. The dog then approached the elephant questioning: “Are you sure you are pregnant? We became pregnant on the same date but I have given birth three times and my babies are now grown dogs, yet you are still pregnant. What’s going on?” The elephant responded: “There is something I want you to understand, what I'm carrying is not a puppy but an Elephant. I only give birth to one in two years, when my baby hits the ground, the earth feels it. When my baby crosses the road, human beings stop and watch in admiration. So what I'm carrying is mighty and great.” Moral of the story: I knew that I was carrying a KING. It wasnt the easiest of pregnancies but I did not despair, I waited patiently for my king to arrive, and now he is here. Shhhhh , did you hear that? The sound of a KING landing, he is going to be GREAT, he is going to be a LEADER, the HEAD and not the tail and a respected MAN. The world was never ready.
