elebrities have come out of their closets in the past years whilst others are still struggling to open talk about their s_xuality.
However, it’s not easy for gay men, to have a family of their own. However, despite Mzansi being a safe haven for gays of late it has been easy for many to come forward and open up about their homos_xuality.
With anti-gay politics sweeping the nation it hasn’t been easy for many. Well below are celebrity gays who are fathers to their children.
Somizi is one of the most recognised gays in South Africa. He first came out as bisexual after he started seeing an unknown man while dating actress Palesa Madisakwane who later gave birth to their daughter Bahumi Madisakwane in 1995.
At first, people were confused about how a gay guy would have a child with a female. Somizi admitted to knowing he was not straight as a young boy and was embarrassed about it. This led him to be in a relationship with a woman and having a child.
Not so long ago Moshe Ndiki made all sorts of headlines when he made it known that he was expecting a child through surrogacy with his husband Phelo Bala. However, this is not Moshe’s first-born baby as many thought. The television personality has a five-year-old son with Lukhanyiso.
However, In other news, it was reported that Seasoned Straight Actors who nailed their Gay roles on TV Drama series.
Well, Mzansi is blessed with a lot of talented people as these include actors who can take on any character and make it work.
This includes actors who can act out gay characters so well that you end up thinking that they are actually gay in real life. Let’s take a look at these South African actors who have acted out gay characters but are actually straight in real life.
Warren Masemola is one of the most talented actors in South Africa. He’s been on so many television shows and movies, which shows that he’s able to take on any character and make it come to life. This also includes the gay character which he played on SABC 1’s Ses’Top La. He was the gay friend to one of the main characters on the show and he played out the character really well.
But in real life, it turns out that Warren Masemola is actually straight and he even has a wife. He’s married to Kguagelo Masemola and they both got married way back in 2017 which makes this year the 5th year while they are still together.
Themba Ndaba is another talented actor who’s has been on our TV screens for a really long time now. He’s however mainly known for his role on Mzansi Magic’s The Queen as Brutus Khoza. But it appears that Themba has played other characters in the past which a lot of people might be shocked when they find out about them.
The specific character I’m referring to here is the one he played on an old SABC 1 sitcom where he played a very flamboyant gay character. This was actually very bold of Themba as gay people were not as accepted as they are right now.
However, even though Themba kind of represented the gay community, in real life he’s very much straight as he was once married to actress, Sophie Lichaba and even had a child together. As of right now, Themba is married to Josey Ndaba and they even have a child together.
