Minnie Dlamini-Jones has had one of the seemingly most beautiful pregnancy journeys that an expecting mother can have, but it seems that that part of the journey has either come to an end or is about too.

It was not so long ago when Minnie announced her pregnancy and again broke the internet. Following years of being just being Mrs Jones, Minnie in September let it be known that soon enough people can start calling her Mama Jones. The significance of the baby was also that it came as the family was healing from the passing of Minnieโ€™s younger brother, and the little one was just the miracle that the family needed to add some cheer.

I had so many ideas of how I wanted to reveal my pregnancy and as usual I was looking for something that hadn't be done before. In the attempt to pay respect to my culture, I did some research on how a Zulu pregnant woman looked like back in the day. Our culture is so rich with amazing clothing, patterns, colors and designs, all of which have symbolic meaning. For example the hat a woman wears symbolizes that she is a married woman. The clothes she wears symbolizes whether she is a girl, a woman, a wife, or a mother to be. The patterns on a maternity apron determine many things, among which is the sex of the baby ๐Ÿ˜‰ In this image shot in my backyard, to represent where my child will be raised, I'm dressed in a bespoke Zulu pregnancy apron called "Ingcayi" hand made and beaded by @asandamadyibi Historically the hide would have been a gift from my father in law from a hunt. The beadwork and design would have been handmade & gifted to me by mother in law with messeges and symbols of the family liniage almost like the western family crest. I'm so proud to show off my culture in a time where so much creativity and evolution has made us look at the art instead of the rich cultural meanings behind the items we fashionably wear today. I am and always will be a proud Zulu woman. #HappyHeritageDay #Zulu #ShakasDay #Culture ๐Ÿ‡ฟ๐Ÿ‡ฆ
