“Okay, … Diapers, cream, wet wipes…Check. Do ‘skin to skin’, see if she’s sleeping, don’t forget to hold her neck… Check. Make sure you don’t get water in his eyes, makes sure you hear him when he cries … Check.”
It’s time… you are bringing a baby home.
Every new parent knows these thoughts all too well. Accompanying the exhilarating excitement of a new arrival, are the various check lists that go along with it. Bringing a little life into the world can be daunting, yet simultaneously the most rewarding experience of life.
Times have also changed and so have the roles of parental duties. Gone are the days where the role of the ‘parent’ rested almost solely on a mother. Even as kids grow, we see many modern fathers stepping up to the challenge of parenting and enjoying the role as primary caregiver to their children.
From what they will wear, to what they will eat and how you will travel with them, one might even call them our own little celebrities. As we follow our favourite Zim celebs and keep track of what their interesting lives have to offer, from their cars and houses, to their fashion and beauty trends, one cannot avoid interest in those cute ‘mini-me’s’ as well.
Let’s get started and have a look at Zimbabwean celeb parents and their ‘cuties’:
