Cape Town — South African actress Connie Ferguson wrote a heartfelt message to her daughter Alicia Angel Ferguson on her 21st birthday.
Connie’s tribute post to Alicia was a journey of her daughter’s life, from the time she was born.
Connie called Alicia a gift from God.
“This time 21 years ago, I had checked into Parklane Clinic, getting ready to deliver one of the best gifts God has ever given me. As I sit here typing this, that morning is replaying in my head.”
Connie added that Alicia’s dad, Shona Ferguson, was always by her side during the birthing process and that she’s in awe of the beautiful young man she’s turned out to be.
” When you arrived he cut your umbilical cord. He was the first to hold you before they placed you safely on my chest. I couldn’t stop marveling at how beautiful and perfect you were! And you have been that for the past 21 years!?
