Mona Skenjane reveals she had a miscarriage

Mona Skenjane

Earlier this year, Mona Skenjane expressed that she had received a lot of backlash from the public when she announced that she was pregnant with her second baby shortly after giving birth to her first child during an interview on SABC 3’s Afternoon express, however, what she didn’t reveal was the fact that she had suffered a great loss before her third pregnancy.

Skeem Saam actress Mona Skenjane has been striding in the entertainment industry for a long time, however, like many of our celebrities, her private life has faced a lot of public scrutiny and at times, it has overshadowed her career.

In a recent interview on CWNH Hosted By Wendy, Skenjane opened up about choosing to keep the death of her second child from the public because of the negativity that was surrounding her pregnancy.

“What I haven’t made public is the death of my second child and I chose not to because…the pregnancy was under so much criticism and I found myself having to defend one of the most beautiful things that I’ve ever experienced, which is motherhood,” she said.

Mona Skenjane revealed that her second baby had died in her arms, and she had questioned God about it: “When within seven days my baby passes in my arms. I am sitting there going, ‘Okay, what is going on?’ So we are talking about spirituality and I am thinking, I am like, ‘God, where are you? I don’t know’.”

Skenjane went on to say that although the death of her second child was sudden, she felt that she had seen the signs that she was an angel sent to bring a message.

“It was very sudden…but again when you speak of spirituality….I guess I always knew,  saw the signs, I heard the messages that this is an angel bringing a message and leaving, not necessarily staying.”

Speaking about her loss, the actress said that she no longer knew what loss was as she was happy to have received the blessing of having another child and felt that she lacked nothing.

“I don’t know what loss is anymore but loss implies that I am less in some way, it means something has been taken from me and that I am lacking…and I don’t lack right now, I feel…even to a point where I’m over…I’ve gained experience, I’ve gained insight, I’ve gained self, I don’t recognise myself, I’ll literally look in the mirror and I don’t recognise myself, I’m just like: ‘Wow this woman, who is she? I like her’”
