Although the pair kept their relationship under the wraps, the public learned a couple of years later that they were engaged, and blessed with a baby boy who recently celebrated his first birthday.
The reality show star was recently spotted wearing an engagement ring she allegedly got from Zuma, and she fuelled speculation that they might be still going strong. Social media users are convinced that they are back together following their recent breakup.
@Lwazii_RSA tweeted "They are still together, she was there at Baba's Birthday Celebration. Saw her on IG of Uzalo producer, Gugu Zuma. She was also on Duduzile Zuma's story standing with Duduzane who was holding her son - Asakhe.”
LaConco, who is very private about her love life recently opened up to Sorisha Naidoo, about their breakup during the first episode of The Real Housewives of Durban. She said there were many people who interjected with their love and it wasn’t her intention to make it a public thing. "The position I am in… I found love and I stayed true to that love. But unfortunately, there were people who had an interest in that love and made it a public thing when it was not my intention."
She also shared that she is raising her son with her mother and she didn't expect this to happen: “No one gets into a relationship, especially if you are young, to face circumstances that I went through. I had to come to a point where I had to accept the situation and these are the circumstances. Okay this is it,” said the reality television star in part.
LaConco who is one of the cast members of Showmax's hit reality show, hinted at being off the market this season. Her mysterious man Petal remains unknown, but social media users think Petal is Zuma.
She has not been disclosing much information about Petal. Despite being asked by some of the housewives to spill more tea about Petal, she still refuses to do so.
In one of the show's episodes Petal delivered flowers for her and she revealed that Petal had just purchased a yacht, but it appears that the information is untrue. According to Jojo Robinson, she received insider information about Petal from somewhere.
She claimed Petal is not as wealthy as we were made to believe. She alleged that Petal does not own a Yacht and at some point he was looking for a housemate.
In a live video she set the record straight about her personality saying she has always been a private person and this is not a new thing. She even mentioned that her siblings share the same sentiments.
"They have been digging information about me. I don't know if it's my character but my siblings often say that they are glad that I don't have any scandals because people would have been talking about them." .
