The Generations: The Legacy actress is off to martenity leave and will only come back next year to reprise her role as Lucy Diale. 

Speaking to Daily Sun Generations’ publicity manager, Nandipha Pantsi confirmed the actress' four month break from the show. 

“I can confirm that Manaka is on maternity and will only return next year. However, fans can rest assured that she will definitely be back. There’s a big storyline that her character is involved in,”

Nandipha also refuted claims that she could be killed off of the show. 

Manaka recently celebrated 20 years as an actress and she hosted a celebration party attended by her friends, colleagues, and family. In some of the pictures shared by Letoya Makhene's bae Lebo Keswa one can catch a glimpse of her baby bump.

The starlet recently confirmed to Daily Sun that she is expecting a third bundle of joy. Manaka who is not a first-time mom slammed those who said they hope she is carrying a baby boy.

"It’s the same feeling I felt when I had my two daughters, so this experience is nothing new. People have been saying they hope I’m carrying a boy, but we’ll see. I look forward to giving birth to a child. I don’t care if it’s a boy or a girl, as long as it’s not an animal,” she said.

“Boys and girls are equally important and have different functions in society. “I don’t believe that boys are necessarily better. According to society and culture norms, they’re carriers of legacies. Girls also bring kids into this world,” she added.

Manaka portrays the role of Lucy Diale on Generations The Legacy. The actress told the publication that she will be going on maternity leave soon.

"I’m still working, but will go on leave a few weeks from now. Lucy will also be gone," she said.

Manaka's eldest daughter Katlego also recently gave birth a few weeks ago and the actress shared on social media how excited for being a gogo.

Manaka is not the only celeb who is expecting, flamboyant media personality Moshe Ndiki also recently announced that he is expecting a bundle of joy via surrogacy.

Making the big announcement on social media he wrote "I prayed for you, longed for you, Thalanda Ilanga Ntaba Alexander Ndiki.  (Tina)" he said revealing the baby's name.

"Thank you to my doctor, my fertility clinic, my friend Sabelo who helped me start and my surrogate, what a journey we have traveled and still to travel... I’m gonna be a dad," captioned Moshe the snaps.
