One Instagram user said: “Confuse the devil sis. People are out here congratulating. What if it’s an old video from her last pregnancy? What if it’s not? I’ve never been so confused.”

However, the video appears to be an old one, which was confirmed by The Lion King musical actress Thembelihle Cele who said: “I cried so much when you sent me this video last year! You are so gorgeous!”

Despite this, social media users have rushed to congratulate the media personality and singer.

American philanthropist and reality star Chanita Foster commented: “Wow! Congratulations mum.”

Former Miss South Africa Cindy Nell remarked: “Wow! You are absolute beauty. Congratulation mommy.”
