Cape Town – After taking a social media hiatus following a controversial interview with MacG on his Podcast And Chill where she revealed that she got R1 million funding from the government to study abroad, actress Natasha Thahane is back in the spotlight.
She took to Instagram on Tuesday to announce to her close to five million Instagram followers that she is carrying her first child.

However, she remained mum on who the baby daddy is but speculation is rife on social media that it could be professional soccer player Thembinkosi Lorch who plays for Orlando Pirates.
According to IOL, the pair have allegedly been dating on and off.
In the cute photo she shared, she is draped in a maroon silk material, as she caressingly cups her glowing tummy.
She simply captioned the picture with a princess crown.
The elite of the entertainment industry flocked to her comments section to congratulate her, including Samnkelo Ndlovu, Zola Nombona, Langa Mavuso and LootLove amongst many of some of the pop culture brigade.
She soon found herself quickly trending on the top spot of Twitter for two full consecutive days, not only for the right reasons, but for the government funding she allegedly scored with the help of the then former National Public Speaker Baleka Mbete.
Tweeps weighed in:
Normalize asking how far is Natasha Thahane’s 1 Million case Eveytime NFAS is trending.
You’re not bullying her you’re just a concerned citizen…
