Congratulations LeAnne!

Multi-award winning songstress, LeAnne Dlamini is expecting her second child with music mogul husband, Sipho Dlamini.
Both mother and baby are doing extremely well having just passed the five month point. Zani-Lee, LeAnne and Sipho’s first daughter, aged 4, has already shared her excitement about a baby sibling and is sure to make a “wonderful big sister”.


LeAnne is extremely excited to share the news with the rest of the world, and is looking forward to the journey that lies ahead. “My husband and I are very excited to be expanding our family. Having another baby is the ultimate blessing to me,” says LeAnne.
But pregnancy won’t stop LeAnne from doing what she does best, singing! The talented singer will be releasing a brand new single from her new album later on this year, which is expected to be even better than before!
Congratulations to LeAnne and Sipho!! Babies are such a blessing 🙂
