Cape Town – Afrikaans singer Bobby van Jaarsveld and his wife Annatjie will become the proud parents of a baby boy on Monday, reports Huisgenoot.

The couple had hoped for a natural birth, but by Monday morning the youngster had not yet made his arrival.

On Sunday night Bobby tweeted: "…If Sion doesn't come tonight, we'll have to go for a caesarian Monday at three."

"We're having trouble sleeping tonight. Our thoughts are going through a lot of things. But God is in charge" wrote Bobby.

Annatjie is expected to undergo a caesarian at 15:00 on Monday.

The Van Jaarsveld family have been receiving a stream of messages from well wishers on both Twitter and Facebook.

The baby, already named Sion, will be the couple’s first born. "We have already decided on a name – Sion. It means to reach your highest calling, to stand strong as a mountain, and also 'heavenly'. The name comes from the mountain Sion (Zion) in the Bible," Bobby told Huisgenoot earlier.
