Rumours were rife whether or not TV and radio host Pearl Modiadie was actually pregnant. News of her pregnancy was shared in June, but she was very hush about the pregnancy – never even sharing a glimpse of her pregnancy bump on social media.
Is she, or isn’t she? The question was finally answered when Pearl shared the most precious photo of her newborn on social media this morning with the following caption:
“I’ve longed for you.
To finally have you here feels incredibly surreal… a feeling only my soul can deeply comprehend.
Welcome to the world my love… the purest of hearts. You’re perfect in every way.
Your father and I love you dearly, we’re actually obsessed with you, but I’ll use the word dearly so we don’t scare you away my love ✨”
Tweeps can’t type fast enough to congratulate the new mom and share the good news with the rest of the world. “Congratulations Pearl” is currently trending in South Africa.
The new mom has also been congratulated by other celebs including Bonang, Gail Mabalane, Pearl Thusi, Takkies, Pabi Moloi.
