And according to Sunday World Sphelele Mzimela was allegedly given the boot on Uzalo after the show producers discovered that she was pregnant.
“My grandmother (my mother’s mother) whom I haven’t seen since I was 8 came to visit us a few weeks ago. She revealed to me that twins actually run in our family. The father of my children, his mother is a twin. I get that it might not have been that I was unable to conceive the stars were just not aligned,” wrote Sphelele Mzimela.
Sphelele Mzimela said that she has never been happier but carrying twins is “wild.” She portrays the role of Mazaza on Uzalo.
According to the latest (July) issue of Move magazine, Sphelele Mzimela has been crying and praying for years. All she wanted was a chance to have a child, to have a baby to cuddle, hold and watch him or her grow up. But it seemed like it wasn’t going to happen. Until now.
The magazine reports that Sphelele Mzimela (30) tried for years to get pregnant, but she was too scared to go to the doctor to find out why it wasn’t happening.
Speaking to the publication she said: “I was scared of finding out that maybe I will forever struggle to have babies or something.”
And when she stopped trying, her prayers were answered. “It’s not just one, you know. I am having twins,” she told Move.
The publication further reports that when Sphelele Mzimela started feeling offish, she didn’t suspect anything.
“I took so many pregnancy tests, yet I was still in such disbelief. When I found out I was pregnant, I was like ‘OMG’,” she told the publication.
Sphelele Mzimela said that she was not feeling well, so she went to see her doctor to check out what was wrong. She was told by the doctor that when someone is sick like she is, it’s normally because they are having more than one baby.
After dismissing what the doctor said as a joke, Sphelele Mzimela just cried when she saw the ultrasound to notice that she was carrying twins and the other was hiding behind the other.
