It is an open secret that fathers are among the most underrated people in the world. That is unfortunate since they play a very important role in the growth and development of their children. 

That's why we have decided to recognize and celebrate celebrities who became fathers in 2021.

Gazza


Gazza is not new to fatherhood as he already had three children before, but in 2021 he added to the number and now he is a father of four.

He and his wife Shiimi took to Instagram in February to announce that they were expecting a child, and a few months later they had their bundle of joy.

 The couple is normally very secretive on their family matters, and so they didn't reveal the face or gender of the baby.

Gazza rarely talks about his family as he understands he is a celebrity and exposing them too much to the public might negatively affect them, so he shields them from his celebrity life. We however wish him all the best in fatherhood.

Nyaniso Dzedze


The actor and his wife Yana are proud parents after they received their baby girl in August.

 The couple who has been married for three years announced that they were expectant in June, using a beautiful black and white photo they posted with Nyaniso kneeling and holding his wife's tummy

After becoming a father Nyaniso rushed to Instagram with a post that said,

 "Two days ago she asked to take a walk with her because she was tired of being couped in the house...

While walking she then commenced with telling me a story about how her mum had said the same thing to her dad when she was pregnant with her. and that same night her mum fell into labor.

Long story short after that walk I became a Dad. All the books, YouTube videos, and podcasts couldn't prepare me for this. I'm elated, in awe, and can't believe the wonder of God and the human being."

Murdah Bongz


The Black Motion band member recently became a father after his girlfriend Dj Zinhle delivered a baby girl. The couple named the baby Asante.

Asante is already a star on Instagram as her account already has more than 90, 000 followers. Going by the photos he has shared on social media Murdah is enjoying every moment of fatherhood.

In a video shared on Instagram, he is seen dancing with pride as he holds Asante. He is sure going to be a great dad.



The relationship between Murdah and Dj Zinhle only came to light after she revealed her pregnancy. A lot of fans were wondering who the father of the child is and that prompted her to open up about their relationship.

Zinhle already had another child, Kairo Owethu Forbes, from her past relationship with AKA.

  Rumor has it that Murdah and AKA are not on good terms as AKA wants to be part of Asante's life an idea that Murdah is not comfortable with. Zinhle is left in the middle to try and make things work between the two baby daddies.

Not many celebrities got into fatherhood this year, we hope next year more will board the parenting ship.
