Thembi Seete has been a mom since 2018 and the super talented star has managed to keep her son out of the prying eye of the public. 
When we think of Thembi Seete, our minds immediately race back to the 90s when a young Thembi was doing iconic things in a singing and dancing group called Boom Shaka with the late Lebo Mathosa, Theo, and Junior. The band managed to reshape the course of South African music and for that, we will forever be grateful to them. 
Over the years, we have seen Thembi successfully dabble in music, acting, and presenting and time and time again, Thembi has shown that she can do just about anything she puts her mind to. 
After her long-term relationship with musician, Bo ended, Thembi has been super private about the interpersonal workings of her life. A couple of years after Thembi broke off her engagement with Bo, there were rumors that the star was dating a successful businessman. 
Shortly after that, Thembi revealed her pregnancy while being mum about the details of the child's father, fast forward to the baby being born, and The Gomora actress hardly shares any pictures of her son, but today is different. 
On her son's birthday, Thembi gave us a glimpse of what her life is like as a mother. Taking to Instagram, she wrote, "Happy Birthday to the little boy who stole my heart, Mommy loves you, my mokomosos. Oh Dakalo, God bless you." 

Thembi then went on to share more snaps from her son's 4th birthday celebration.

The star who recently bagged a new gig as one of the judges on Idols is not the only celebrity that is determined to protect their child's identity. Celebrity chef, Lorna Maseko is also hell-bent on keeping the details of her baby just between her and her loved ones. The former Top Billing presenter is keeping everything under wraps and she has not even shared a name or the child's gender.
Although there are private celebrities, there are also those who are more than happy to give us glimpses into their lives as parents, case in point, DJ Zinhle and AKA, the famous exes daughter is a star in her own right with more than 1 million followers on Instagram.

Speaking of her daughter's Instagram on her reality show, DJ Zinhle explained that although her child has social media, she is not the one running it herself. She explained how the day-to-day running of the page is done by AKA's mother, Lynn Forbes.

In a conversation with Linda Mtoba in 2018, Zinhle opened up about the dialogue she has with her daughter regarding fame and social media, β€œWe have conversations with her because Kairo is having encounters with people where she realizes this is not normal, she asks and we are very honest about what is happening so we can prepare her for the life she is going into and we are not sheltering her.”

She then went on to add that she takes steps to ensure that Kairo is not haunted by fans when she is in public.
