Television and radio presenter Pearl Modiadie shocked unsuspecting fans when she announced her split from her long-term partner and baby daddy, Nathaniel Oppenheimer.
Taking to her Instagram stories recently, the host of the SABC1 reality show It Takes A Village hinted there was a break up during the holidays when she posted a message that read: “Alone is so much better than being unhappy.”
It was not long before the presenter shared another message that confirmed the new mom was now single.
“I wasn’t able to achieve my dream of having the family I’ve always longed for. But out of it came my beautiful son and for that, I’m eternally grateful,” it read.
This news of the break up came as a shock to Modiadie’s 2.9 million fans as she has been very private about her romantic affairs.
She even kept her pregnancy a secret, despite the rumours circling around social media at the time.
Modiadie only broke the news in June when her publicist Charmagne Shongwe confirmed it, revealing she and her partner were overjoyed to be first-time parents.
In September, the Metro FM presenter shared the first picture of her son, paying a sweet tribute to her bundle of joy.
“I’ve longed for you. To finally have you here feels incredibly surreal… a feeling only my soul can deeply comprehend.
“Welcome to the world my love…the purest of hearts. You’re perfect in every way. Your father and I love you dearly,” wrote Modiadie alongside the cute picture of the young family with both parents holding the baby’s finger.
The 33-year old started showcasing her maternity photographs with her baby bump.
On Christmas Day, the new mom also posted pictures of her and her baby, with no daddy images in sight, confirming the breakup.
Modiadie joins a list of celebrity couples who unfortunately didn’t get the happily ever after they were hoping for.
