The recent cover reveal was nothing short of stunning, with Wa Badimo posing in elegant purple swimwear and cover-up, that showcased her baby bump. The shoot also included her partner, Themba Karabo Mabaso who couldn’t hide his joy and excitement at the prospect of becoming a dad.
Bona magazine states:
On the reality show, not only did she walk away with R2 million, but she walked away with the love of her life, Themba Karabo Mabaso. The pair tied the knot last year and are expecting their first child together.
Mpho then adds:
“Having a relationship in the spotlight is not nice in my eyes. I remember I was reluctant about us coming out because I didn’t want the feeling of not having boundaries around us. I treasure what we have and knowing what I know now, I would have said let’s protect it with all we have,” said the star.
Her followers were excited and had this to say:
“Congratulations my baby girl, you made us so proud. Underground love,” said @khoc_mbatha
“She doesn’t even look pregnant, she is sexy, it looks good on her,” said @lebogang5572
“My baby I’m crying, I’m so happy and proud of you,” said @mkhizethandiwe
Congratulations Mpho, we look forward to seeing more of her and her growing family in the months to come.
