Ntando broke the news on Tuesday with a lengthy statement on social media, detailing the next steps for herself and Khaya as well as their baby boy.
"In the last few days my husband and I have had in depth discussions about our marriage and our young family challenges [sic]," Ntando writes.
"On Sunday we met my in laws and informed them of our mutual decision for us to file for divorce. I also informed my mother and the rest of my Kunene family who were disappointed with the divorce decision but appreciated the fact that I represented them well at the Mthethwa's in the way they raised and expected from me [sic]," she added.
The former Miss South Africa mentions that she has returned to Mpumalanga, where she is originally from, along with her son.
"I will have custody of our son but at all times his father shall have unrestricted access so that he can play his fatherly role as we co-parent [sic]," she says about their little one.
In the statement, Ntando also mentions that because she was not married in community of property, she will keep all her assets, and Khaya will do the same. She has also made the decision "not to ask the court for child maintenance".
