Johannesburg - We're sure there's more than a few butterflies in AKA and DJ Zinhle's tummy's as they count down the weeks until they are first time parents. But spare a thought for the grandparents who, as AKA's mom reveals, are also on that rollercoaster of excitement and anxiety.
Taking to DJ Zinhle's blog on Wednesday, Lynn Forbes wrote about the changes in her life and revealed how excited she is to soon be a granny for the first time.
"This July is going to be different, much more exciting and just altogether the most magical month ever! This July, not only am I going to be one year closer to the big 50 but I am going to be a grandmother … for the very first time!!!" she wrote on the blog, later adding "I am looking forward to celebrating life … my own life, that of my family, my new grandbaby and humanity."
And although it's an exciting time in the Forbes household, Lynn says it's also a little bit of an anxious time.
"Have you ever felt scared but excited, overwhelmed but happy, unsure but completely ready, nervous but confident, all at the same time? It’s that constant pool of emotions, each fighting for dominance at any given time. You’ve been there, right?
She reveals her worry is whether she'll be a good granny to AKA and Zinhle's little one.
"How am I going to tackle the scary “50 Monster” coming for me? What kind of grandmother will I be? Will I be enough in my new role as a parent and grandmother?" she mused.
Judging by the advice she later gives in the post, and which she's no doubt been giving AKA over the last few months, we think she's gonna be a great gran!
