Thembisa Mdoda’s current marriage is her second marriage. Between 2012 to 2015, she was married to popular actor Atandwa Kani.

Her ex-husband Atandwa Kani is the son of veteran actor- John Kani and like his father, he has followed in his footsteps in establishing an international acting career and has already had roles in international films and series including Black Panther.

According to sources, Thembisa Mdoda and Atandwa Kani met in 2004 at Wits University where the two were students. They had an on-and-off relationship for years and after being apart for some time and dating other people, fate brought the two back together in 2011 and shortly after, Thembisa discovered that she was pregnant.

On 11th August 2012, Thembisa Mdoda and Atandwa Kani got married in a beautiful wedding ceremony and a few months later, Thembisa Mdoda gave birth to beautiful twin boys.

Thembisa Mdoda’s first marriage was very rocky from the beginning. From the start, Anele Mdoda’s husband questioned the paternity of the children even though he supported them as his own.

In 2014, things started getting ugly between the couple as some publications reported that Kani had allegedly accused Mdoda of infidelity.

The infidelity accusations and the paternity question would continue haunting the marriage and in 2015, the couple decided to end things.

In the same year, Thembisa Mdoda’s ex-husband got married to actress Fikile Mthwalo. The two had met on the set of a television show.

Thembisa Mdodas’ children's paternity

After years of requesting a paternity test for the twins, Atandwa Kani’s fears that he wasn’t the biological father were confirmed in 2015.

The real identity of the twins’ biological father has never been revealed by Thembisa Mdoda although some sources allege that Thembisa Mdoda’s baby daddy is a pilot called Andile Nodada.
