Lorna Maseko’s daughter turns 2 – Video

South African TV host Lorna Maseko is celebrating her daughter’s second birthday. Having denied rumors of pregnancy a couple of years ago, the chef confirmed that she has welcomed a child.

Rumors started swirling around two years ago that she was expecting her first child with EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu, but she debunked the pregnancy rumor.

Taking to Instagram, she posted a celebratory baby photo, wishing a happy birthday to her beautiful daughter. The TV host made sure to hide her daughter’s face in the montage she shared and also switched off comments on her post.

“Happiest 2nd birthday to my beautiful daughter. You mean the absolute world to me and you make it ALL worth it…. You’re the smartest most beautiful little human (and extremely talkative lol ) and I pray you may always know the love and peace of God. Just know that I will ALWAYS be there for you,” Maseko captioned the post.


Two years ago, screenshots of her Instagram live video were circulated on social media, which sparked the narrative. This follows after her fans noticed her protruding baby bump.

The screenshots opened room for speculation, and social media had a field day deciphering whether she was pregnant or not.

But things got intense when Sunday World ran with a story confirming that Lorna was pregnant. The publication alleged that the former “Top Billing” host was pregnant with the Economic Freedom Fighters’ married Deputy President, Floyd Shivambu’s baby.

The article alleged that the two had been in a secret relationship following Floyd’s divorce. In addressing the matter Lorna slammed the allegations that she was about to be a first-time mother.

Moreover, Lorna’s tweet seemed to suggest that the star might have problems conceiving children, therefore the suggestion that she is pregnant is triggering. In her words she stated that, “Women suffer with many issues, fibroids (which I have), endometriosis and many others. You don’t know people stories.”

While she debunked the pregnancy allegations, what tweeps found interesting was that she did not address the matter of whether or not she is dating Floyd Shivambu. The fact that she omitted to address the matter on her post, left many tweeps wondering if her silence on the matter was because the story at least got that fact correct.
