The mother-of-two also took to Instagram to announce the birth of Lethabo, who she says only weighed 3,9 kg when he was born.

 In an Instagram post, she posted a picture of her bundle of joy’s small feet. 

She captioned her post: “I couldn’t contain the love that was growing inside of me for too long. I just had to share it with the world. Lethabo Liyema Gqeba finally arrived on Wednesday and already we can’t imagine what life was like before this beautiful addition to our family. When they say “trust the process and embrace every season” this specific chapter of my life comes to mind. You have awakened something inside of me little man and I can’t wait to create special memories with the newest squad member."


Speaking to DRUM about motherhood, Sechaba says that motherhood has given her a purpose in life.

“I love both my boys and giving birth again six years later has made me feel whole and has given me a sense of purpose. It’s a joy I can’t describe in words.”

The Motswako presenter continued to say that she’s had a couple of rough nights with Lethabo but hopes that it’s only temporary because she “loves “her sleep.  

“With my first born, Alumkile, I got enough sleep because he wasn’t a restless sleeper, however, with Lethabo it’s too early to tell but we’ve had a couple of rough nights already. I’m told this is temporary and hope it’s true because I LOVE my sleep. I know I sound delusional.”

Sechaba encourages parents to teach their children to have confidence and said that she will definitely teach her last born son to be confident and unapologetic about who he is.

“I would love to raise Lethabo to be confident and unapologetic about who he is and will become. I feel like confidence in children is a massive thing. Teach them early about how they can conquer the world and be fearless and watch them soar. All I want for him is to be the best possible version of himself and I believe with the right amount of confidence, half the job will be done.”

Congratulations to the Gqeba family!
