South African actress Pearl Thusi gushed over her own beauty and sense of style in a video with her daughter Thando Mokoena on Monday 30 August. 


Pearl Thusi is all about family time and in a recent video she posted to Instagram she is seen enjoying some light hearted bonding time with her eldest daughter, Thandolwethu Mokoena who she had with her ex-husband Walter Mokoena. 

The Queen Sono star started the video by acknowledging that her daughter is “cute” but lets her know exactly where she gets her looks from as she begins to gush over herself for the rest of the video. 

“Hold up girl, I know you’re cute and all that but is that your mom though? Is this your mom? Like is this your mom though? Like I mean is this your mom though?,” Pearl Thusi asks Thando.

“I mean c’mon, your mom drips like this?,” continued Pearl as her daughter cannot help but agree.

“Girl you blessed! This your mom though,” added Pearl Thusi.

Aside from her eldest biological daughter Thando Mokoena, the actress adopted her second daughter Okuhle Thusi. 

“It’s been really incredible. I’ve tried not to make a big deal of it in terms of talking about it. Women do this every day, our grandmothers did this for our parents. There are aunties, women have to travel and then someone has to take care of their children. It’s a village and I’m an African and I live by everything that an African means as much as I possibly can,” said Pearl Thusi about adopting Okuhle to Times Live.

The Quantico star is reportedly planning on turning three into four by adopting another little girl. The little girl is said to be the child of Pearl Thusi’s relative and is already living with her. Pearl Thusi told the court that her relative is an unfit mother because she is a drug addict suffering from depression, living in an appalling condition that is not conducive to raising the five-year-old child. 

Another revelation made from the court papers in application to adopt her third daughter, Pearl Thusi reportedly stated that she is dating and set to marry Australian businessman and philanthropist Shaun Keith Alfred Bonétt.
