Parents-to-be and acting industry creatives Zola Nombona (28) and Thomas Gumede (34) are excited about their bundle of joy on the way. Thomas took to social media to share his joy on the day he found out they were expecting.
“I remember clearly the day I found out about you. Your mother looked at me and said “I’m pregnant” and then proceeded to cry. I understood it was tears of joy, anxiety, excitement, disbelief, love and the small realization that life will never be the same again.”

He went on to say, “As I’ve watched you grow from trying to feel for the 1st kick, to begging you to stop guquluzing and playing soccer and your mother’s tummy now in 3rd trimester. I have felt waves of emotions every time I think of you and every time you respond to my voice or my touch. But more importantly, you have given me something that I couldn’t give myself. I have been fortunate to live the life I have, a life of doing what I love with intense passion.”

Their son almost on the way, the couple are said to have moved in together. “All my achievements and all my ambitions still couldn’t give me what you have. You have given me purpose. I now have a real reason to be as crazy and ambitious as I have been, because you need a role model, a hero, a friend, a mentor, a father,”he wrote. 

Thomas promises to do everything in his power to give his child the best life opportunities, “to smother you with love and kisses until you’re old enough to tell me to stop! I’ve felt love, but never like this.”
