Pearl Modiadie kept a very low profile during her pregnancy. The Lunch With Thomas and Pearl co-host refused to comment, post pictures and dished out the most hilarious clappacks to Twitter trolls who tried to invade her privacy with spicy comments.
Although a certain tabloid spilled the tea on Pearl’s pregnancy, she refused to budge and only announced news of her son’s birth after he was born.
On 21 September 2020 Pearl took to her social media accounts where she posted a pic of her newborn baby without revealing his face.
“I’ve longed for you. To finally have you here feels incredibly surreal… a feeling only my soul can deeply comprehend. Welcome to the world my love…the purest of hearts. You’re perfect in every way. Your father and I love you dearly,” wrote Pearl.
Pearl then rolled out amazing pictures of her maternity shoot but the trolls came out in full force saying it is too skimpy and she only revealed her baby’s gender and name (Olivier Lewatle) when she posted pics of her stunning nursery.
Addressing the critics, Pearl said, “If you can’t stand seeing a bare pregnant belly, you’re welcome to get off my page, unfollow (or) block. Your negative comments are not welcome here! Also, stop feeling so entitled, I don’t owe you anything.
To everyone else, thanks for the love. I am happy to share this journey with you.”
Even so, Pearl did everything on her own terms. She has since been slowly letting us in on her motherhood journey, including walks with her baby, their Huggies endorsement deal and the cutest little snuggles.
Pearl joins the likes of Minnie Dlamini, who just a few days ago posted a sizzling picture of her amazing snapback game.
