Johannesburg - Shikisha presenter, Ntombi Mzolo gave birth to her son today and has described it as miraculous.

Speaking to The Juice last week, the TV presenter explained that at seven months pregnant, her son has been diagnosed with a rare heart condition called, Hypoplastic left heart syndrome. 

In essence, the left part of the heart is underdeveloped and is not able to pump blood as it should to the body. As a result, there is a lot of added pressure on the right side of the heart to provide blood to the body.

Ntombi told us that at the time of the diagnosis, doctors gave her the option of terminating the pregnancy, but it was something she did not want to do, instead saying that she would leave the decision to God.

Today Ntombi was admitted to hospital and has just updated fans on social media with this touching message.

"#MiracleBabyMzolo was born this morning just after 8am and was immediately sent to icu. I only got to see him for about 2mins, I will spend more time with him tomorrow. #livingbyfaith #blessedchildofgod
