Former Uzalo actress Londeka Mlaba is expecting her first child. “I am happy to announce this new blessing that has been bestowed upon me by God. Yes, I am blessed with a baby girl and cannot wait to see her very soon,” the 26-year-old wrote on Instagram.

Sharing photos from her pregnancy photo shoot, she added: “It took me a while to accept it but who am I to play the perfect being when we are made in imperfection.

I have embraced her as part of my life and to be honest, pregnancy is no walk in the park but a very beautiful journey to experience, one that I would never forget.”

In a separate post, Londeka said that she never thought she would get married or have children, saying: “I thought I’d be 21 forever but God had other plans for me.”

But now she thanks God and has embraced the experience.
