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. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
