NOTHING beats a mother’s wisdom and love. That’s why Rhythm City actress, Samkelo Ndlovu, had to go back home in Lombardy East, north of Johannesburg, to take lessons on being a mom from her own mother. The actress recently welcomed a healthy baby girl, saying it’s the best gift she has ever received on Valentine’s Day.


The actress took to her social media page to express how much she is currently enjoying motherhood with the arrival of her new bundle of joy. The great news was met with a lot of congratulatory tweets from her fans and fellow entertainers in the industry. The new mommy has been sharing how much joy her baby girl has brought into her life. “I haven’t stopped staring at her. Her dad is worse, he holds her even while she’s asleep,” she says. Samkelo also revealed that her daughter has shown so much character even though she’s just a few days old. “She’s only three days old and already showing so much personality, go figure.” And a fan quickly hinted that she got her character from her mother.


The actress went to the right place – home, where she will be schooled on how to be a good mother by her own mother. The actress’s mother even prepared Samkelo’s old room for her and the latest member of the family. Samkelo, who hinted that she will stay with her mom for three months out of respect for tradition,  says when she got out of the hospital, she came home to a seven-colour Sunday meal and dessert prepared for her. She also explained that her mom had prepared her old room for her and her baby and it was all pink and cute.


Move! has discovered that model, Sello Nhlapho, is apparently the actress’s baby daddy. Sello is rumoured to be dating the actress and the pair once went on vacation together early in 2016 and flaunted their pictures on Instagram, which were later deleted. But Sello is not the type to shy away from posting pictures of them together and his captions and her replies say it all. Sello’s followers also congratulated him after he posted the photo of his baby mama when she broke the news of her pregnancy. “A personification of God’s love in human form. Life: The most precious gift. You look absolutely beautiful Samu. Gratitude isn’t even enough,” he captioned the picture. Samkelo was not ready to talk about her daughter when Move! contacted her for comment.
