Former Mrs SA expecting her second child

Matapa Maila is expecting her second baby

Former beauty queen and businesswoman Matapa Maila is expecting her second bundle of joy. ZiMoja spotted the former Miss Earth attending Mrs South Africa semi-finalists at Emperors Palace last week Friday evening. 


Adorned in a stunning black and gold dress with silk gloves by renowned designer Tienie Boshoff, the bubbly Maila confirmed the news of her pregnancy to ZiMoja. She said being a second time mother is a blessing she does not take for granted. ?I am happy and completely humbled by the blessing to be a mom again,? she said. Although she did not want to reveal the gender or who her baby daddy is, ZiMoja has learned she is in her third trimester. Sources close to the situation say her baby daddy is not in the industry. ?He is a businessman, and they have been going out for almost a year now. They are in love and planning on taking their relationship to another level,? added the source.




Matapa was married to businessman Douglas Rikhotso, and they have a 10-year-old daughter, Rifuwo. The couple divorced a few years ago amidst cheating allegations. She holds four degrees and an MBA. She was crowned Miss Earth South Africa 2008, Mrs South Africa 2018 and made it as the first runner-up in the Mrs World 2019. According to another source, after her failed marriage, she decided not to publicise her personal life. The source adds that she has since cut off many of her friends. ?She minds her own business and does not attend industry events unless they?re things that are related to beauty pageants and charity events,? adds the source.
