This Christmas the Roberts household in upmarket Camps Bay, Cape Town, has extra reason to celebrate – this time next year they’ll be a family of four.
“I found out I’m pregnant about three-and-a-half months ago,” Cindy Nell-Roberts reveals after being spotted in looser outfits at recent celebrity events.
The former Miss South Africa and Pasella presenter is five months’ pregnant with her and husband Clive’s second child. Their eldest, Ethan, is 18 months old.
“We didn’t make a fuss over the new pregnancy because I knew the news would get out at some point,” Cindy says with a laugh. “Only our friends and family knew. And no one asked – except YOU of course!”
She and Clive (41) are over the moon to be parents again, she says. It was one of her New Year’s resolutions.
Cindy (31) started feeling ill just before she joined Clive on a business trip to Germany. “I suspected something wasn’t right and when it happened the second time I immediately knew it was more than just a cold.”
She could see a doctor only a few weeks later on their return. And now they know Ethan has a little buddy on the way!
