Connie Ferguson is celebrating the 30th birthday of her first child, Lesedi Matsunyane-Ferguson.
“The Queen” star in a lengthy note shared on Instagram, the actress expressed her love for Lesedi as she remembers how the birthday lady was born.
“For many different reasons today is an extremely emotional day for me. I get emotional thinking back on this day 30 years ago. How excited and scared I was at the same time.
“The anxiety of wanting everything to go right, so I could finally lay my eyes on you and hold you in my arms.
“You scared the crap out of me when you didn’t cry! My heart stopped for a moment and my whole world was spinning! It was like living my worst nightmare!
“After a few “slaps” and clearing your mouth, you let out the most beautiful cry I’ve ever heard! So loud and bold! A fitting announcement that a DIVA was in the room!
“As you turn 30 today, I want to remind you of your light “LESEDI” that shines so brightly it cannot be ignored, of your gentle “BONOLO” yet bold spirit, that is nurturing and caring, and of the love that you so freely give.
“My prayer for you my baby, is for you to know that God loves you so much! That in spite of the challenges life throws at us, He will never leave nor forsake you.
“You are chosen for a purpose much bigger than you realise, and on your Pearl anniversary, recognise the wisdom that is innately in you, and the love that freely flows from your heart.
“May the world never change that about you, and may you continue being LIGHT wherever you go!”
