ACTRESS Manaka Ranaka (41) is weeks away from welcoming a new bundle of joy into the world.
Manaka, who plays Lucy Diale on the popular soapie Generations: The Legacy, recently became a gogo as well when her eldest daughter, Katlego, gave birth.
The actress, who is preparing to become a mum yet again, is preparing to go on maternity leave.
“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 chuckled.
The actress doesn’t subscribe to the notion that boys are heirs.
“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,” said Manaka.“People have been saying they hope I’m carrying a boy, but we’ll see.”
