If there was ever a ‘queen of pregnancy glow’ competition, media personality Minnie Dlamini-Jones would win it!

Ever since Minnie announced that she’s set to start a replacement chapter in her life by becoming a primary-time mom, fans have showered her amorously as she’s been basking within the light and glowing, darling!

Minnie took to Instagram to offer her fans a glimpse of how her preggy journey has been thus far. She posted a series of lovely snaps taken by her husband and baby-daddy-to-be Quinton, with a really detailed caption of how Baby Jones has been nothing but good to her.

“I’ve had the foremost incredible physical journey with my pregnancy. My skin has glowed from day one and with remedies, I started early and can share, I even have no new stretch marks and therefore the ones I had, have disappeared. No filter, no edit, just Mr. Jones, his lens and therefore the beautiful Hout Bay backdrop.”

The mommy-to-be told her followers that she can’t await the day she gets to carry Baby Jones in her arms.

“Slow jams on a Sunday reception with some good food, and dreaming about the arrival of my child and type of family my hubby and that i are getting to have, I’m so excited i can not wait!”


I had so many ideas of how I wanted to reveal my pregnancy and as usual, I was looking for something that hadn’t be done before.

In an attempt to pay respect to my culture, I did some research on how a Zulu pregnant woman looked like back in the day. Our culture is so rich with amazing clothing, patterns, colors, and designs, all of which have symbolic meaning. For example, the hat a woman wears symbolizes that she is a married woman. The clothes she wears symbolizes whether she is a girl, a woman, a wife, or a mother to be. The patterns on a maternity apron determine many things, among which is the sex of the baby 😉

In this image shot in my backyard, to represent where my child will be raised, I’m dressed in a bespoke Zulu pregnancy apron called “Ingcayi” hand made and beaded by @asandamadyibi

Historically the hide would have been a gift from my father in law from a hunt. The beadwork and design would have been handmade & gifted to me by mother-in-law with messages and symbols of the family lineage almost like the western family crest.

I’m so proud to show off my culture in a time where so much creativity and evolution has made us look at the art instead of the rich cultural meanings behind the items we fashionably wear today.

I am and always will be a proud Zulu woman.
