‘The Wife’ Star Mbali Mavimbela Welcomes Baby
Mbalenhle “Mbali” Mavimbela, dubbed the “national wife” for her role as Mahlomu “Hlomu” Zulu in the Showmax telenovela, has reportedly given birth to her first child.
She played Bonko Khoza’s on-screen wife Hlomu Zulu in The Wife seasons one and two, welcomed her newborn baby three months ago, according to City Press.
Sources close to the 25-year-old said she is taking a break from acting and public appearances to spend time with her newborn. The baby’s father is said to be a well-known Johannesburg businessman.

The businessman told the publication that the actress had given birth a few months ago, but that he wasn’t her child. “Yes, she had a baby, but I am not the father. The father is well known, but I am not the father. The father is in the [entertainment] industry as well. He is a celebrity. She is a friend of mine.”
“I am not a celebrity, and I would not want things like this written about me. I just called her after we spoke earlier to ask her if she knows why people are saying I am the father of her child … She is currently in hospital with the baby, and they are both fine. Everyone in the industry knows her boyfriend. I am just a friend.”
