New ad­di­tion to Adams fam­ily

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - METRO - NOR­MAN CLOETE SOYISO MAL­ITI

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.
