Tshepi's daughter, Liyema Leru Bogopa, was born in January on the 14th, and she is the second born. The couple now have two children, the eldest being a boy named Sibabalwe Lehakwe.

Explaining what her names mean, Tshepi revealed that Liyema means stability in the family or the home is stable and then Leru means cloud.

During her pregnancy, well after she announced it, she kept her followers in the loop about how she is doing as well as her little one. She revealed that she had gotten ill, like many expectant mommies, but had to be saved by ginger, "Not all pregnancies are the same, some don’t get ill at all & some suffer from morning sickness & all body aches. In my first trimester, Ginger was my saving grace but once second trimester kicked in, I was able to keep food down. My cravings consisted of toasted sandwiches & fresh summer fruits."

She also acknowledged her son, Siba and how he has changed her life, "To my first baby. The one who made me a mom. The one who taught me how to be a mom. My life changed in so many ways when you came into the world. I am so blessed to have you in my life. I love you so much Sibabalwe Lehakwe."

The family had been under the radar for living together, starting a family but not being married. She told people to mind their own business and leave her out of it. She reiterated that her kids are wanted and not mistakes, "No matter what, I want my children to know they were wished for, longed for, prayed for, and that they are forever loved." She relayed a sweet message to her bundle of joy, "We cannot wait to meet you."

This after JR went on Podcast and Chill and told MacG that she is not his wife yet.

Speaking of JR, he just scored a major opportunity to judge Idols SA after it got revamped. The revamp saw Unathi and Randall getting the boot, and Somizi returning as well as Thembi Seete joining them as well.

“We’re excited to have Idols SA return for an incredible 18th season. To have such longevity in such a fast-changing industry is no small feat, and we’re proud to keep giving our viewers what they love. One of the key components in having staying power is evolution, and our new-look panel is part of that,” says Nomsa Philiso, Executive Head of Programming: General Entertainment.
She continues: “Idols SA is an important part of our creative industry. Not only do we unearth hidden talent, but we also nurture our contestants and equip them with the necessary tools to start or grow their careers. It’s a privilege to be able to do that for another season.”

We cannot wait to see how this pans out and if the judges will work well together.
