It's official! Reality TV couple, Mandla and Lexi, AKA Mandlexi have welcomed their first child into the world and we couldn't be more excited for them.
Lexi announced their pregnancy at the tail end of 2018 and by all accounts, they have had a relatively trouble-free pregnancy, well except for a bit of bodyshaming on social media but trolls are gonna troll…
Lexi confirmed the news on social media this week, revealing that she gave birth on Friday night and from her words we could tell that she was feeling the kind of joy that only children can bring.
She recently revealed on Instagram that the reason she's been quiet is because she delivered her baby a few days ago.

I know I've been so quiet, but that's coz i just needed to physically and emotionally prepare myself for my biggest fear (birth!!! 😫😫😫) hence, the silence… I can't believe I'm a mom, to be honest, it feels weird and I still have to pinch myself…Pregnancy and motherhood is extremely overwhelming, but im sure I'll be fine. Mandla beat me to it, by posting, he's sooooo inlove 😍😍😍😍 our little baby boy was born on Friday. Thank you for all the well wishes, sweet messages and DM's. I appreciate the love. 💙💚💛💜
The couple, whose full names are Lexi Van Niekerk and Mandla Hlatshwayo met on Big Brother Mzansi back in 2014 where Mandla emerged as the winner. However, they were such an entertaining couple that it was impossible NOT to follow them and before we knew it, they had landed their very first reality TV show: Mandla and Lexi.
The lovebirds are in a strong place right now and we are certain that the arrival of a baby is only going to bring them closer. Lexi confirmed that Mandla was also over the moon and had already begun posting on social media. She said,
"Mandla beat me to it, by posting, he's so in love, the baby was born on Friday. Thank you for all the well wishes, sweet messages and DM's. I appreciate the love,"
We are extremely thrilled for Mandlexi and we wish their brand new baby nothing but the best of health and prosperity.
As a complete aside, does anybody think we're overdue a third season of Mzansi Magic reality show Mandla and Lexi?
