IN one of Mzansi’s biggest soapies, Generations: The Legacy, she plays the role of a business executive who is now battling to stay alive after catching the vutha virus.
But in real life, seasoned star Samela Tylebooi (37) is pregnant and glowing, and is said to be enjoying every minute thereof. According to sources, this will be Samela’s second child and the actress is over the moon about her bundle of joy.
Insisted an insider: “Her first child is 21 years old now, so she’s excited to be welcoming another one into the world. She’s really looking forward to being a mum again.”
According to sources, the sultry actress, who joined the popular SABC1 soapie late last year, will take some time off to bond with her child when he or she arrives.
“She’s expected to give birth next month. Samela is a perfectionist. She wants everything to go well as she’s been looking forward to this for a long time, which is why she’ll take a break from shooting the soapie and return at a later stage. She last experienced the feeling of being a new mother more that two decades ago, so this is why she wants all to go well,” said a second mole.
The show’s current storyline on Generations: The Legacy helps the actress hide her baby bump.
“She’s eight months into her pregnancy, so her stomach is visible. But with the costumes worn by all those affected by the vutha virus, her bump doesn’t show as the costumes are flabby and big,” said a third mole.
Samela was not available for comment.
