Cape Town - Afrikaans singer Karlien van Jaarsveld and her 'momager' Ronel Brink are furious at the media for announcing the news that Van Jaarsveld is expecting twins.

Beeld newspaper broke the news on Thursday morning with the headline "Karlien, Derick expecting twins".

Karlien tweeted on Thursday morning: "Some days I HATE the media and their 'reliable sources'. Good morning South Africa. I would have loved to share the news myself, but @BeeldNuus was one ahead of me."

The singer later tweeted: "Thank you for the well wishes for our 2 babies. It’s a wonderful privilege and I pray for God’s protection over them."

Van Jaarsveld’s mom and manager also vented on Twitter after the baby news was leaked: "I asked SO nicely yesterday that NOTHING gets published. I explained in a nice way that Karlien and Derick should have the honour of announcing the news first."

Brink also tweeted an angry message to the Beeld reporter who wrote the story: "Thanks Lourenza. For Nothing. Your word has the same worth as a Zim dollar."

Van Jaarsveld tweeted about her visit to her gynaecologist on Tuesday saying: "The sonar was WONDERFUL WONDERFUL AMAZING AMAZING."

The Uitklophou singer, who married Hougaard in March this year in Stellenbosch, announced her pregnancy news on 10 July in a series of Tweets.

She first tweeted "We have big news..." followed by "there's a small Hougaard on the way..."

She also jokingly posted this message on her website earlier this year: "If we fall pregnant it’s going to have to be twins, so I can catch up with my brother Bobby van Jaarsveld. But by then he and Annatjie might already have a third child on the way."
