Multi-talented star Latoya Makhene has expressed how returning to Generations after a maternity leave has led her into having anxiety. The anxiety is caused by the fact that she was getting used to being a mom to her infant baby boy who she claims she breastfeeds and leaving him for work was the hardest thing she ever had to do. Despite the anxiety she also stressed that she was excited to be back on screens.
“The most difficult part of returning to Generations was the separation anxiety. It is a real thing. I missed my baby so much. I had it for a good part of the build up to me returning to work and a little after I had started again. I had it worse than with any of my other kids. I honestly think it is because I am older now.” said Makhene Speaking to TshisaLive.
The 33-year-old mom of four also added that she loves being a mom and was grateful to her children for giving her perspective.
“I absolutely love being a mom. It is the best thing in the world. I see myself in my children and am amazed at the light they bring into my life.”
Except for returning to on TV, Makhene is working on music a good example is a single co-written and produced by her father, music veteran Blondie Makhene. The track is called Qinisela and is available on iTunes for download.
“He is such an inspiration to me. He knows me better than anyone so he knows how to get the best out of me and push me beyond what I think is my limit. It won’t be the last song we do together.”
