‘Another soccer player?’ – Fans react to confirmation of Kelly Khumalo’s pregnancy

Just days after trending while fans speculated that she was pregnant, Kelly Khumalo confirmed that she is indeed having her third child. Now, fans are spiralling over who the potential father of the child might be.

Over the years, singer and reality TV star, Kelly Khumalo has been involved in some high profile relationships. However, in recent years, she has kept her relationships private leading to even more speculation about who she may be in a relationship with now.

Fans react to Kelly Khumalo’s pregnancy news

While she did not explicitly refer to her pregnancy, she posted a picture of her baby bump and credited her sister for taking the picture.

She also tagged her location to KwaZulu-Natal where her sister currently lives.

“Kelly Khumalo’s pregnancy shows that no matter how much [you] think you’re unlovable and at the basement, someone will always be there for [you] to pick your hand. It’s even more beautiful that her career is peaking, and the glow? She looks so amazing,” commented @Melo_Malebo over on Twitter.

“Kelly Khumalo doesn’t deserve the hate she’s getting on her alleged pregnancy. That lady is a good mother to her kids and everyone who will be mothered by Kelly is blessed. She’s a lover and deserves to be loved. What happened in the past was unfortunate but give her a break,” said @MaabuleM.

She was referring to talk on social media judging Khumalo for having her third child by a different man.

She already has two children; a son with Jub Jub named Christian and a daughter with the late Senzo Meyiwa named Thingo.

While a number of comments were mean-spirited and aimed at judging the circumstances surrounding the singer’s latest pregnancy, some just marvelled at the fact that she may be involved with yet another soccer player, albeit a retired player.

Most social media users sympathised with Kelly, however, wished her well on this new chapter of her life.

“Kelly Khumalo having another baby is so adorable. I hope she’s gets to enjoy her pregnancy and motherhood all over again without any drama this time,” tweeted @Sye_Mdluli.

“The double standards on Kelly Khumalo pregnancy. Yes all her babies will have different father’s (if she is indeed pregnant). Men are disgusting for calling her out on that while y’all have 5 baby mamas,” tweeted @KellyZenande.

Over on Instagram, her comments were flooded with congratulatory messages before she limited comments on the post.
