New addition to Adams family
COMEDIAN and actor, Emo Adams has said his wife, Michelle Gildenhuys is pregnant with their third child.
The KykNET star joked he advertised his children on Gumtree but admitted he did not receive any hits.
Adams and Gildenhuys are excited about the baby and say the other children are also excited about the prospect of another baby sister or brother.
Adams says they recently heard the good news and initially only told family and loved ones – but the secret is out now.
Gildenhuys is expected to give birth in June next year.
The couple have been together for 10 years and earlier this year celebrated their third wedding anniversary.
In April, Adams turned 40. The family celebrated with a trip to Thailand.
To crown it all, Adams marked 30 years in the entertainment industry.
He made his stage debut at the age of nine.
The couple’s youngest son, Malik, turned one in March and their firstborn, Kadar Zayn is now three.
Gildenhuys said that even though they always wanted a “big” family, the thought of another “man” in the house was daunting. She is hoping for a girl.
Gildenhuys was a Miss South Africa finalist in 2008.
Adams admitted that at one stage he had to ask himself, “do I want to make more money or do I want to create more memories?”
The couple says the secret to their balanced family life is three months of hard work followed by a month of family time. WITH a few tweaks to their game from the Blitzbokke, hundreds of kids from the Strand and Somerset West area became better rugby players this week.
Blitzbokke Siviwe Soyizwapi, Muller du Plessis, Dylan Sage and Tim Agaba conducted Sevens rugby clinics with aspiring stars at De Hoop Primary School fields in Somerset.
“I’ve learnt all the agility and speed skills and how to tackle,” an overjoyed Louw du Toit, head boy at De Hoop, said. His favourite Blitzboks player is Du Plessis.
The event was attended by 75 pupils from De Hoop, Somerset College, Hendrick Louw, Gordon’s Bay and Beaumont primary schools.
“It is a pleasure to be able to give back to the community. We helped them with their agility, tackling and defence. They are enthusiastic and because they caught on quickly, they’re now well drilled.
“The correct coaching can be a boost to any youngster. This clinic is helpful to them, you have to teach them at a young age so they can get rid of bad habits on the pitch,” said Agaba.
Soyizwapi described it as an honour to be able to give back to the community and have aspiring rugby players who look up to them.
Managing director at Under Armour SA, Gareth Kemp, said: “Teaching kids basics in rugby is essential. We were very fortunate to host a day like this.
“We’re all about developing children and this is no different.”
Kemp described coaching clinics as critical to the development of the children.
