Actor Thomas Gumede Is Expecting His First Child
Award-winning actor and director Thomas Gumede is officially a dad-to-be. Overjoyed Thomas took to Instagram to share the exciting news with his fans. He posted three ultrasound scans of his unborn child. He then revealed on the day his girlfriend told him about the pregnancy.
“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 wrote.
The actor also shared how it has felt to be part of the pregnancy process with his girlfriend and how their unborn child has given him something he could not give himself a ‘purpose’.
“As I’ve watched you grow from trying to feel for the 1st kick, to begging you to stop guquluzing (turning) 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. 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 added.
He ended the post by revealing the baby’s gender and he also made a promise to his son that he is going to be a great father and take care of him. “I promise you that I will do everything in my power to give you 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. Woza mfan’wam, sik’lindile [Come, my boy, we’re waiting for you],” he wrote
