Luyanda's Great Expectation!

Luyanda's Great Expectation!

Mar 08, 2019, 11:55 AM

South African actress, Luyanda Mzazi is expecting her first child. This comes after Generations: The Legacy's spokesperson, Gaaratwe Mokhethi revealed on DRUM magazine that the sultry actress is currently on maternity leave and is no longer on set, shooting scenes.

Usually when actresses fall pregnant in real life, the writers are usually instructed by producers to then write out that character. However in the case of Luyanda, she is receiving a more positive treatment because the show's spokesperson also revealed that Luyanda's character, Lesedi Diale will not be written off and her storyline shall resume upon her return. 

The 22 year old actress is known to keep intimate details of her personal life to herself. Therefore details of the baby daddy are naturally quite sketchy at the moment. Luyanda's secretive streak also applies to her father, Mzi Mzazi, who happens to be an prolific figure within the world of the Arts. The Generations: The Legacy actress has previously refused to say too much about him but stated that she is working on carving her own legacy - away from her father's.

Speaking to DRUM magazine, the spokesperson also added the following:

"The character Lesedi has been pivotal in telling stories that truthfully mirror our society,"" she said, referring to the teen character’s history as a victim of sexual assault. The writers will continue shining a light on issues that affect the youth, therefore we urge viewers to continue watching Generations: The Legacy to see how Lesedi’s journey evolves."

It seems this is baby making season in the local celeb scene as fellow actress, Amo Chidi announced that she is also about to pop anytime soon. Much like Luyanda, the identity of the father of the baby is still a secret.

Amo's pregnancy photo shoot gave us all sorts of Wakanda vibes as she was beautifully draped in an African print doek, crop top, which showed off her belly and that long skirt sealed the look. But of course after a pregnancy reveal, a baby shower is set to follow, as it happened with Amo.

Her baby shower was held exactly four days ago and one look at those photographs on Instagram, we are convinced that the talented actress is excited about her pregnancy. Amo also kept referring to her baby as ''Princess'', which obviously gave it away that she is expecting a baby girl.

One more actress that unvelied her pregnancy in style and grace was Rhythm City's Samkelo Ndlovu. Her pregnancy photo shoot was African inspired as she had her upper body skillfully drawn with white paint. These immaculate patterned drawings are also strongly assimilated with one of South Africa's Nguni tribes, AmaXhosa, which are commonly known as 'Umchokoza'. The photograph is iconic.

We certainly can not wait to cast our eyes on Luyanda's little one. With her good looks, it is safe to say that the baby will be just as cute.

Congratulations Luyanda Mzazi!
