Simphiwe ‘Simz’ Ngema shocked fans on Wednesday morning by announcing her pregnancy on social media

The actress posted a picture of herself baring her baby bump in a stunning maternity shoot.

She also tagged her baby daddy – actor Tino Chinyani.

Simz captioned the pic: “Indeed there is a God in heaven. He wiped away my tears and gave me joy in abundance. You’ve brought hope and purpose to my life. @tino_chinyani I will forever be grateful to you for this beautiful gift and for teaching me how to love again. I love you both with all my heart.”

The baby news comes three years after Simz’s husband Dumi Masilela was shot and killed in a botched hijacking.

Tino posted a similar pic with the caption: “I thank the Lord up above that you blessed me with your presence & showed me who I could truly be & for that I’ll forever be grateful. For this gift you have given me, I promise I will always love, care & be there for you & our seed.”

The couple were first linked together last year after working on a project.
