The Wife actor Mbalenhle Mavimbela, dubbed the national wife, shared a glimpse into her stunning baby shower with her more than 370 000 Instagram fans and followers.

"I was told to get ready for a photo shoot [only] to actually find that it's my surprise baby shower ft [featuring] my family, friends and favourite artists," she wrote in the caption to the video. "Thank you to everyone that has been part of this journey."

"Kumnandi guys, ukuba imina serious [It's nice to be me, guys]."

Artists such as Nomfundo Moh and Sjava entertained guests at the white, gold and blue-themed baby shower, while The Wife season 3 actor Gaisang K Noge was also in attendance.

In another post, Mavimbela shared photos of herself caressing her baby bump.

"Guys, ngizamile ukuheca (I tried to breathe in)," she captioned the post.
