Tshepi Vundla and JR Bogopa are set to welcome a new baby soon

One of social media’s most popular kids, Siba Bogopa is about to become a big brother. His mom, Tshepi Vundla, shared her pregnancy announcement on Instagram on Saturday along with a sweet caption.

“No matter what, I want my children to know they were wished for, longed for, prayed for, and that they are forever loved. We cannot wait to meet you,” read the caption.

Congratulation streamed in for the pair who received over 26,000 likes and hundreds of congratulatory comments from fans and famous friends alike.

“Congratulations Mama TV!” commented Africa Radio Now on Apple Music host Loot Love.

“Congratulations angel,” said Minnie Dlamini-Jones while Mihlali Ndamase said “Congratulations, God bless your family.”

Tshepi Vundla is a South African influence who previously worked as a model, fashion stylist, personal shopper and wardrobe organizer.

She is the daughter of Peter and Mampo Vundla. Peter is an advertising industry veteran credited with co-founding HerdBuoys (now HerdBuoys McCann-Erickson), South Africa’s first wholly Black-owned advertising established in 1991.

Tshepi’s boyfriend and the father of her children is South African businessman, creative entrepreneur and musician Tabure Thabo Bogopa Junior (popularly known as JR).

He is one of the mainstays of the South African Motswako rap scene and is also a well-respected music producer.

Although Tshepi and JR have known each other for about a decade, they started dating some years ago before welcoming their first child, Sibabalwe ‘Siba’ Lehakwe Bogopa in 2017. Siba recently turned four years old and his parents threw a Space Jam themed birthday party for him.

Only time will tell what the gender of Tshepi and JR’s second child will be.
