Nine months after the tragic loss of their three-week-old daughter, Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Oupa Manyisa and his wife, Johanna Louw, have confirmed she’s expecting again.
“We’re past the second trimester of the pregnancy and we are very excited about our daughter,” Johanna says.
However, the couple, both 29 years old, acknowledges that having another baby is no replacement for baby Kutloano and nothing will heal the pain of losing their child.
“Our baby will always be in our hearts and we know God’s plan for us.”
The couple has started preparing for the arrival of the new baby girl.
“We haven’t yet thought of names but we’ve started buying baby clothes and toys. We love children and our families are also very excited.”
The lovebirds met when they were still teens in 2006.
“We met while I was at the Africa Sports Youth Development Academy run by Harold Legodi and I was attending high school in Highlands North.
She was at Liberty Community School,” Oupa told DRUM in an exclusive interview in July.
Six years after meeting, he paid lobola for Johanna.
After going through many ups and down, the pair say they’re geared up for parenthood. Congrats and good luck, guys.
