Gqom musicians, Bongekile 'Babes Wodumo' Simelane and Mandla 'Mampintsha' Maphumulo, are growing their family.

The pair - who officially tied the knot in a glamorous traditional wedding ceremony in April this year - have recently welcomed their first child together; a son who they’ve given the nickname ‘Spontshi’.

Although the couple did not publicise the pregnancy, many fans had suspected that Babes Wodumo was pregnant after videos of her visible baby bump had surfaced on the internet.

However, fans may get to see her pregnancy journey in Uthando Lodumo – a new reality show series that will air exclusively on Showmax at the end of June.

Making the announcement of the show, Babes Wodumo shared a 2-minute-long trailer of the show which starts with her saying she was tired of being Mampintsha’s girlfriend before moving on to a conversation about how their relationship started.

In the trailer, Babes and Mampintsha can also be seen sharing the news of the pregnancy to their friends and family members.
