The SABC TV News anchor Vabakshnee Chetty-Miller pregnant; expecting her first child, a girl, and 'off for a new adventure' as she goes on maternity leave.



The SABC's SABC TV News anchor Vabakshnee Chetty-Miller is pregnant and expecting her first child, a girl, with husband Geoffrey Miller.

Monday night was the last time SABC viewers saw Vabakshnee Chetty-Miller who left for maternity leave.

Co-anchor Peter Ndoro said viewers have been wondering for months why it seemed as if Vabakshnee Chetty-Miller was putting on weight behind the anchor desk. 

"I will miss being here, but I'm off for a new adventure," she said.

"It's a little girl!" said Peter Ndoro, as Vabakshnee Chetty-Miller took out a pair of small pink shoes at the end of Monday evening's bulletin, after which he reached over and hugged her on-screen.

The professional and beloved news reader on SABC3 and SABC News (DStv 404) got married in November 2014 in Stellenbosch.
