South African media personality, Minnie Dlamini-Jones, is counting her blessings now that she is a new mother, as she explains that after giving birth to her baby boy, her fortune has definitely increased. After the birth to Netha Makhosini Jones Minnie explains that she has been granted more opportunities, and has credited her son to be her lucky charm.
In a tweet on Wednesday, 18 November 2020, the new mom claimed that 2021 is definitely looking prosperous, as new ventures have become available to her. She also committed to hustling harder as a working mother, in order to make sure that her baby has the life he deserves. She stated, “I swear my child arrived with blessings from the other side. Kunetha izinhlanhla ngempela. So excited about what the new year brings, it means I have to work twice as hard but I’m ready to show my son what I’m made of and make him proud!!!! What’s your motivation?”.
Minnie’s fans took note of her mentioning the other side, which many believed to be a reference to her late brother, Khosini Dlamini. The family-orientated media personality took the opportunity of welcoming new life as a way of paying tribute to her brother as well. Her son’s name, Netha Makhosini Jones, serves as an honourable mention to Khosini, who would have been a proud uncle to his nephew.
Whilst Minnie showed one of the many positives of having her baby in the tweet, just yesterday, she got candid about the struggles of being a new parent. In a Tweet on Tuesday, 17 November 2020, the new mama explained that being a parent is not for the faint hearted, and has led her to have mad respect for parents – even more so than she ever did before. She acknowledged that she had Netha’s grandmothers to help her out in the first few days, but gave major credit to her hubby Quinton.
She stated, “Mad respect to all parents doing their best at raising their kids. This experience is no joke!!! So blessed to have such amazing support, my moms and most especially my amazing husband (I could cry at how great he is with the kid) Nothing great ever comes easy.”
Many of her fans reassured her that it takes time to get used to being a parent, and that she will soon learn everything naturally.
