Our local celebrities have left many of us surprised during this lockdown period. And the most recent celebrity to keep a secret until the last minute is Simphiwe Ngema. The actress is expecting her first child with model Tino Chinyani.
The actress recently announced her pregnancy on Instagram, posting snaps from a photoshoot in which she sports a yellow bikini that reveals her baby bump. A yellow backdrop and flowers in the same hue complete the look.
“Indeed there is a God in heaven. He wiped away my tears and gave me joy in abundance. You’ve brought hope and purpose to my life,” she captioned the pictures.
The soon-to-be mother tagged Tino, thanking him for their beautiful gift and for teaching her how to love again.
Simphiwe tragically lost her husband, Dumi Masilela, to an attempted hijacking in 2017. The singer has since taken time to heal and let go of the incident.
Tino posted the same photoset and can be seen in the second frame, sprinkling the flower petals on his baby’s mother.
“Lord knows how long I prayed on this moment & to be answered in the most beautiful way possible. I thank the Lord up above that you blessed me with your presence & showed me who I could truly be and for that I’ll forever be grateful.
“For this gift you have given me, I promise I will always love, care & be there for you and our seed,” Tino captioned his post.
Congratulations to the soon-to-be parents!
