Actress Amanda du-Pont has revealed that she is a married woman

She made the admission in a touching post on Instagram, dedicated to her grandmother who passed away this week. 

“I lost my gogo last night. If you know me well you’d know she was my fav. Everything in my body is aching and so painful,” she captioned a picture with her gogo. 

Amanda said she is happy her grandmother is “resting and no longer in pain”.

The 31-year-old added that her granny got to see her tie the knot before she died

“She promised to wait until I was married before she passed. Over the last couple of years, she would hint that she was getting tired. I’m married granny and I’m ok, hope you are too. Maye ngitakukhumbula! Rest in Perfect Peace.”
