- A man has been forced to play the role of mother and father since his baby was born
- Since the lockdown, St'Patrick Ramz Mhlanga has had to look after his baby every day for the past two months
- The mother of his child has constantly been on duty as an essential worker, while his job has been placed on hold
A young man is setting the bar extremely high for Mzansi men.
Many South African children unfortunately suffer, as a result of absent fathers or deadbeat dads.
St'Patrick Ramz Mhlanga took to the #ImStaying Facebook group and revealed his incredible sacrifice over the past two months.
Two months ago, his baby was born, but this also coincided with the nationwide lockdown.
During the challenging period, he was forced to stay home as his employer put his position on hold.
The mother of his child was in quite the opposite situation, as she is an essential worker and was constantly required to be available.
As a result, Mhlanga has been raising his baby for every day since she was born.
In his post, he expressed his joy with his bundle of joy and commended women everywhere.
A screenshot of the post can be viewed below.
Mhlanga included an adorable photo of his baby and Facebook users went gaga.
Elizabeth Riviers said,
"She is Beautiful. My late hubby also looked after our baby while I was at work. Big up to u dad."
Andi Sacks added,
"Such a gorgeous little cutie pie. Amazing how such a little bundle can turn your world upside down and take control."
Danida Bekker said,
"She is a beautiful little girl with a wonderful daddy."
