Since getting married, Thembisa and Eric have been loving and supportive of each other. In 2021, the television personality expressed how supportive Eric was when she contracted the dreaded COVID-19 virus. He stayed by her side when she was hospitalised and reminisced about the period with the words:

A constant reminder of the incredible human I married. Right there by my side every day, when I was in hospital. Regardless of all the 1000002 things he had to. I can’t begin to explain what it was like not being able to see my babies, but seeing his face kept me going😍. With a constant smile, a joke here and there, videos of the kids, and constantly reminding me that everything will be okay❤️🥺. You are not only the love of my life but my peace too. I wish I could whisk you away on a special vacay so you can breathe easy. Lie on a hammock and just relax🥰. You deserve that peace of mind.

In addition to the expected baby boy, Thembisa Nxumalo is a mom of twin boys. Her new baby will be her third son and her first with Eric.
