Award-winning queen of Gqom Babes Wodumo has been making waves in Mzansi’s entertainment industry ever since she launched her career in 2016.
Along with her hectic career in the limelight, Babes Wodumo also has another very important but tasking job- a mother!
In 2021, the beautiful energetic musician surprised us when she shared the news that she had successfully delivered a little one into the world.
Here is everything you need to know about Babes Wodumo’s child who is a few months shy of turning one year old, as well as the details about the child’s father and Babes Wodumo’s relationship with him.
Who is Babes Wodumo's child?
Babes Wodumo’s child is a little cute son called Sponge Wodumo who was born on 16th June 2021. His name seems to have been inspired by the popular cartoon series SpongeBob SquarePants.
Babes Wodumo’s pregnancy caught many of us by surprise. She hid the baby bump quite well and we only got to see it on social media during her birthday party in 2021, after Eyadini Lounge posted her photos on Instagram. The hotel had hosted her party.
Since bringing little Sponge into the world, Babes Wodumo has been careful not to share a lot of his photos online and when she does she cleverly hides his face most of the time.
A couple of months after Sponge was born, Babes and her husband threw a lavish Sip and See party for him. The party which was attended by the couple’s friends and relatives was a blue and bright yellow event.
Who is the father of Babes Wodumo’s child?
The father of Babes Wodumo’s child is her husband Mandla Maphumulo, a.k.a Mampintsha who is also a musician, music producer, and talent manager.
The two have had one of the most talked-about relationships in ZAlebville with extreme highs and extreme lows.
Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha’s relationship goes back to a few years ago after meeting at West Ink Records where they both worked.
In 2019, the two had a very public breakup after Babes publicly accused Mampintsha of physically abusing her leading to Mampintsha’s arrest by the police.
The two, however, got back together and in October 2020, Mampintsha proposed to Babes Wodumo on live radio. The proposal was shared on Instagram and got their fans talking for days.
In March 2021, Babes and Mampintsha got married in a lovely traditional wedding that was attended by some prolific names in the industry including DJ Bongz and DJ Tira. This was a few months before Mampintsha and Babes Wodumo’s child was born.
Is Babes Wodumo’s child on Instagram?
Yes, like many celebrities these days, Babes Wodumo and Mampintsha Shimora have an Instagram account for their adorable little son.
Sponge’s Instagram account sponge_wodumo has over 37.8K followers and the little man is not even one year old yet.
The page is filled with bits of videos and photos of Sponge spending time with his parents, but with his face carefully hidden.
We can’t be sure when little Sponge Wodumo’s face will finally be fully revealed to the world but we are here for it.
