In the lengthy post, Thomas shared the emotional moment he found out his girlfriend was pregnant. He said in part; “I remember clearly the day I found out about you. Your mother looked at me and said “I’m pregnant” and then proceeded to cry. I understood it was tears of joy, anxiety, excitement, disbelief, love and the small realization that life will never be the same again.”

He added; “I have felt waves of emotions every time I think of you and every time you respond to my voice or my touch. But more importantly, you have given me something that I couldn’t give myself. I have been fortunate to live the life I have, a life of doing what I love with intense passion. All my achievements and all my ambitions still couldn’t give me what you have. You have given me PURPOSE.”

Thomas ended off sharing that he is expecting a baby boy saying in part; “I promise you that I will do everything in my power to give you the best life opportunities, to smother you with love and kisses until you’re old enough to tell me to stop! I’ve felt love, but never like this. Woza mfan’wam, sik’lindile.”

I remember clearly the day I found out about you. Your mother looked at me and said “I’m pregnant” and then proceeded to cry. I understood it was tears of joy, anxiety, excitement, disbelief, love and the small realization that life will never be the same again. As I’ve watched you grow from trying to feel for the 1st kick, to begging you to stop guquluzing and playing soccer and your mother’s tummy now in 3rd trimester😂😭🙏🏾. I have felt waves of emotions every time I think of you and every time you respond to my voice or my touch. But more importantly, you have given me something that I couldn’t give myself. I have been fortunate to live the life I have, a life of doing what I love with intense passion. All my achievements and all my ambitions still couldn’t give me what you have. You have given me PURPOSE. I now have a real reason to be as crazy and ambitious as I have been, because you need a role model, a hero, a friend, a mentor, a father. I promise you that I will do everything in my power to give you the best life opportunities, to smother you with love and kisses until you’re old enough to tell me to stop! I’ve felt love, but never like this. Woza mfan’wam, sik’lindile. ❤️😭🙏🏾
