Johannesburg - After five years of struggling to fall pregnant, Mampho Brescia has for the first time spoken out about the joys of adopting.
Mampho hardly ever talks about her private life, but in a rare moment she opened up to CliffCentral's Gareth Cliff, revealing that her and her husband adopted their daughter, Rain.
Naturally uncomfortable to talk about the decision, Mampho addressed Gareth's questions about her pregnancy by eventually telling Gareth, "We actually adopted".
She says that even though Rain might not be her biological child, she still feels like her daughter is just like her. "To me it's as if she came out of me, it's the same," she says.
"She's such a mini-me. She'll come into my bedroom in the morning and say 'Mommy, I need to do my lips', she's always in my shoe cupboard. She loves clothes and she loves herself. She's so dramatic. She loves to sing and dance and she's all about her. I know because that's what I was like at two," Mampho says. "My mother always says that and my sister says 'you just got you'," she adds.
