Lungi Naidoo has announced the arrival of her twins. The 43-year-old's "miracle babies" were born at Life Kingsbury Hospital in Cape Town. 

"We are absolutely thrilled to welcome our twins Isaiah & Raye Anderson to the world. It hasn’t been a walk in the park, but thank God for our miracle babies who are both doing well and are healthy," she wrote on Instagram. 

Lungi, who hails from KwaZulu-Natal, thanked the neonatal intensive care unit for taking care of her babies during "this very difficult period". 

"By His Mercy & Grace we finally say goodbye to our Life Kingsbury Hospital NICU family and head home for the first time. We can’t begin [to] thank the Doctors, Gynaes, nurses, hospital staff and entire team enough for their 24/7 care and compassion, and for helping us navigate and hold our hand through this very difficult time." 

 The 'About You' hitmaker also praised her husband Karl Anderson for giving her the "best gift ever". 

"Welcome to our new life (no more sleep emoj)," she wrote.

A few months before welcoming her twins to the world, Lungi shared a message of encouragement to women who are struggling to conceive. 

"To all the families that are praying to conceive, I pray and ask God to turn His eyes to you. Your miracle is on its way. I know how it feels to maternally yearn for a baby. I never spoke on it but dealt with it silently for many years. So, don’t give up," the singer-songwriter wrote. 

Lungi has previously had struggles with fertility. She had fibroids removed in 2015 and later tried IVF to conceive. She revealed in a 2021 Instagram post that she lost two babies. 

After years of pain and tears, Lungi - who has an adult daughter named Aleesa - can finally hold her rainbow babies in her arms. 

Her friends and family congratulated her on becoming a mom again. 

"Congratulations! What beautiful blessings!" Luthando 'LootLove' Shosha commented. 

Judith Sephuma: "Oh wow, congratulations Mr & Mrs Anderson."
