Zenande Mfenyana is enjoying the journey of motherhood. The actress recently reflected on how children born at the start of the pandemic would be turning one this year.
She expressed excitement over the fact that her own bundle of joy would soon hit the milestone birthday.
Zenande also reflected on the difficulties of raising a child during these trying times and showed love to all mothers who were pregnant or gave birth during the pandemic. Taking to social media, she said:
“The 2020 babies turning 1 this year, so cute! It’s almost our turn, I can’t believe it! I’m gona cry all day that day. Big ups to all the mommies who were/are Preggie during a pandemic, gave birth and are still standing! It hasn’t been easy..."
Social media users appreciated her kind words. Twitter user SebabatsoMafok3 said:
“A lot of mummies I know that were pregnant during this pandemic didn't make it after giving birth. So it's such a blessing for woman who gave birth during covid to still be alive and being with their babies”
“Can’t wait for September... I will be crying the whole day. I have been looking for nice matchy outfits or us”
“Worst part was if you tested positive for Covid you were not allowed to see your baby, and had to be kept in hospital for more days too”
“It’s been the most amazing journey, a change I didn’t know I needed until it happened. I’m also definitely gonna cry real tears on the day”
“It wasn't easy but we made it. I gave birth at 34 weeks and only 1 person was allowed to visit me throughout my hospital stay worst part was that they couldn't admit me till they received my Covid results.”
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Zenande Mfenyana took to social media to declare that she was committed to prioritising her health and fitness in 2021 and that her hubby was her biggest motivator.
The celeb gave birth to her first child last year and posted how she now wants to get back into shape. She said that her husband was so fit and committed that it inspired her to get back into the fitness game.
Zenande acknowledged that her body had already done an incredible thing as it had grown a whole human and managed to deliver her a healthy daughter.
Zenande's tweet read:
"My hubs is so fit, he inspires me each morning to work harder at my fitness goals...I’ve got such a long way to go but at least I’m trying. I grew a human in me in 2020, in 2021 I need to get back into shape"
Fans and followers were happy for the actress' revelation but also reminded her that postpartum bodies all look different. Online users made sure to remind Zenande not to pressurise herself to fit into the snapback culture, but to rather make sure she was doing things at her own pace:
@KaraboKbmags: "Whatever you do please do not pressurise yourself with the snapped back culture. Take your time. Be kind to yourself and stay healthy. I hate the snapped back culture it puts too much pressures women especially those in the spotlight"
@SlindySosibo: "Yeah staying fit is hard especially if you still have a little human that you breastfeed as you cannot consume certain things but very soon you'll swing back into shape. Start small with minimal exercise for now it's make a difference trust me"
@AngelaMaseko: "You will get back to your shape dear if you put some effort and your mind to it. Plus you have hubs as a supporter, it makes it easier"
