Baby Lorch? NO confirmation if Orlando Pirates star is Natasha Thahane’s ‘baby daddy’

It’s been several weeks now since Natasha Thahane gave birth and there is still no confirmation whether or not Orlando Pirates star Thembinkosi Lorch is the ‘baby daddy’.

Thahane is a South African actress, model and media personality, best known for her roles in the television series Blood & Water, Skeem Saam, The Queen, and It’s OK We’re Family.

She announced that she was pregnant in a photoshoot shared to her over 5.1 million Instagram followers in early March and is believed to have given birth towards the end of April – although there’s been no exact date announced.

The gender and name of the newborn is also unknown.

Thahane gave Mzansi the first confirmation that she had given birth after she is seen breastfeeding in her Instagram stories last week.

Thahane has been in an on-off relationship with the Buccaneers’ star Thembinkosi Lorch since they were first spotted together on “baecation” in Zanzibar in June 2021.

The pair posted photos of each other, but they were later removed. They then posted Instagram stories proving they were still together.

However it wasn’t long before they posted cryptic Instagram stories and unfollowed each other.

At the time of publishing, the pair are still not following each other on Instagram.

Lorch has remained mum on whether he is the father or not and hasn’t shared any photos of Thahane since she announced her pregnancy, only of himself.

Lorch was active on social media as recently as three days ago, but has only posted a series of pictures of himself styling various ranges of clothing.

So, it’s unclear whether Lorch is the “baby daddy” – and if not, who is!

Lorch had reason to celebrate on Monday when he was named in a 38-man preliminary Bafana Bafana squad to two upcoming AFCON 2023 qualifiers in June.
