Simphiwe Ngema posted a video on her Instagram announcing her pregnancy with her boyfriend Tino Chinyani.

Simphiwe Ngema also known as Simz Ngema, is a television personality and songwriter born in Soweto.

Last month, she announced that she was in a relationship and expecting a baby with her boyfriend who is an actor, TV host, presenter and model, Tino Chinyani.

In the caption, Simz wrote, " Verified 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, Tino. I will forever be grateful to you for this beautiful gift and for teaching me how to love again. I love you both with all my heart."

The tears that she was talking about (we assume) was referring to the pain she went through when she lost her husband Dumisani Masilela in a tragic car accident in 2017.  

This beautiful caption was followed by a series of photos showing her belly.

A week after revealing pregnancy, Simz took it to Instagram to reveal the gender of their bundle of joy. In the picture, two hands were captured holding two tiny blue shoes with a caption, "it's a boy."

After this announcement, the couple decided to post a video on Instagram, that revealed that their baby Tiyani Kemorena Michael Chinyani arrived on June 23.

This couple needs to share with us how to hide such a huge secret. Congratulations to this lovely couple!
