Thomas Gumede is a daddy to be. He shared the great news via his official social media accounts on Tuesday!outh African award-winning actor and director
Reflecting on the day that his girlfriend told him that she was pregnant, Thomas Gumede shared three ultrasound scans of his unborn baby.
“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,” wrote Thomas Gumede.
Thomas Gumede said that he’s watched his child grow from trying to feel the first kick.
“As I’ve watched you grow from trying to feel for the 1st kick, to begging you to stop guquluzing 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,” said Thomas Gumede.
He said what was, more importantly, is that the child has given him something that he couldn’t give himself.
“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 a 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,” expressed Thomas Gumede.
Thomas Gumede has made a public promise that he’ll do everything in his power to give his unborn child the best life opportunities.
“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 are waiting for you),” concluded Thomas Gumede.
