Katlego Danke’s family, parents and children, and pregnancy

She doesn’t always prefer to talk or share pictures of her parents and siblings.

But she, however, spoke of her father and mother, admiring how hard they worked to make her and her siblings the people they are today.

She said this when she was expecting her first baby back in 2014, saying:

“As I’ve become older, I recognise just how hard my mother worked to ensure that we were all seen to, the house was kept, and she looked after us so well. This was something I took for granted and now realise is far from easy; he is an unshakeable man, always first to look for a solution and telling us everything would be ok.”

As of now, Katlego has two children a son and her new baby, who gave birth in 2023.
