As the world celebrated World Prematurity Day this week, Skeem Saam actress Makgofe Moagi revealed for the first time that she, too, had given birth to premature twins.
The actress, who plays Charity in the SABC1 popular soapie, said she would never forget the day her angels arrived.
“Today is World Prematurity Day… my angels came here early. I’ll never forget that day. Bana ba baloi le bona will never forget it cos they sure tried me throughout shem!! Modimo ke yo mogolo, le badimo ba gesho ba maatla,” she captioned the video of herself holding her twins.
Reflecting on the experience, Makgofe revealed that it wasn’t easy at all.
“This journey is not for the faint-hearted. You will be tried and tested but victorious you shall emerge. I’m still standing. My heart and home are full of love and laughter. Our mini-mes are growing and doing amazingly well, the strongest, smartest, hilarious and kind twins I know. They are perfectly splendid. In this life you must know to whom you belong… phetha, phasa, rapela,” she said.
Her pregnancy is the reason she took some time off from the show, where she plays a mother to two sons.
