ACTRESS Gugu Gumede (30) has announced exciting news to her fans.
She is pregnant and cannot wait to meet her unborn baby.
The Uzalo actress, who plays the role of MaMlambo, shared the news on Instagram where she said her unborn baby’s heartbeat gave her strength after her mother, National Freedom Party leader Zanele KaMagwaza-Msibi, died.
She said she prayed for a baby and God answered.
Gugu posted a photo wearing a black dress in which her tummy looked big, sharing that she was due to give birth soon.
“For this child I prayed and the Lord hath given me my petition which I asked for Him,” she captioned the photo.
She further said even her mother prayed for this baby.
“I have often been asked where I got the strength to continue after my mother’s passing. I got it from my unborn child. At her funeral, as I stood at the podium speaking on my queen’s behalf, I was not alone.
The strongest heart was beating inside of me, reviving me. I am alive because of it. My baby, you are your grandmother’s answered prayer. She was so excited to meet you. Even though you did not get to meet in the physical realm, I know she is currently holding you in the spiritual one,” she wrote.
The excited mum-to-be said her unborn baby’s kicks and moves were a testament of God.
Speaking to Daily Sun, she said she has been waiting for the perfect time to reveal the pregnancy.
“Those who are close to me knew all along. But I wanted the public to know at the perfect time. I will give birth soon and please, let me not reveal the gender as I want it to be a surprise. But it has been an exciting journey,” said Gugu.
