SPHELELE Mzimela has given birth to twin boys.
The former Uzalo actress, who also had a role on Mzansi Magic’s Isibaya, took to Twitter to announce her babies were born last week.
The actress, who revealed her pregnancy in April and announced she’d be expecting twins in July, named her babies Ntando and Mellie.
On Instagram, Sphelele wrote that her gogo had told her twins ran in their family.
“My grandmother (my mother’s mother) who I hadn’t seen since I was eight came to visit us a few weeks ago. She revealed to me that twins actually run in our family,” she posted.
“The father of my children, his mother is a twin. I have never been happier but carrying twins is wild.”
In March, Sunday Sun reported that Sphelele was fired from Uzalo because of her pregnancy.
“She’d faint and sometimes feel hot or vomit while shooting her scenes. In fact, she’s been in and out of hospital. The producers were out of ideas as to how they’d create a story around her real pregnancy,” read the article.
She was replaced by Mpume Ngwenya.
