GOSPEL singer Ntokozo Mbambo is expecting her second child with husband Nqubeko Mbatha.

The former Joyous Celebration member cannot contain her excitement about the pregnancy.

She tells Sunday World that she is over the moon to be blessed with another child.

"My family and husband are very excited about the news of my pregnancy and I feel so special. It will also be good to have a sibling for our 18-month-old daughter, as she will have a playmate and they will grow up together," she says.

The 27-year-old singer says she doesn't want to go into detail about the sex of the baby and how far along she is into her pregnancy.

"This is a family matter and as much as I am excited about it, I have to respect the wishes of my family not to share too much information about the pregnancy," she explains.

Despite her busy schedule with performances all over the country this festive season, she is confident about the state of her health and taking care of the unborn baby.

"I have a supportive husband who is always there for me. He offers assistance when I feel overwhelmed and I am sure I will cope with my busy schedule," she says.

Mbambo has more to celebrate as she also won two Crown Gospel Awards prizes last weekend.

She took home the best female artist and best gospel album awards for her third album Filled, released in August.

"I can't believe this because going to the awards I told myself that I want to keep calm and have no major expectations.

"I am surprised to have scooped two of the biggest awards for the evening," says Mbambo, adding that her fans can expect surprises from her over the festive season because she has an interesting line-up.
