South African musician Toya Delazy is reflecting on her motherhood journey. 

The 'Love is in the Air' singer and her wife, Alisson 'Ally' Chaig, recently celebrated their daughter Kali's first birthday.

The couple threw their little girl an outdoor party. 

"Celebrating 1 year of being her mama. She is one of the most beautiful life events that have ever happened to me. I am so lucky that I get to raise this gorgeous princess, Kali, alongside my loving wife," Toya captioned the birthday post.

The 33-year-old added that her daughter has taught her a lot in the past year. 

"I learnt to care deeply by caring for her and the meaning of motherly love, patience and selflessness. She has made me a better person. I thank all our chosen family and friends who have been around us through this journey supporting us, celebrating with us and strengthening us.

"It really does take a village to raise a child and to be around souls that love as hard as we do ensures that she will never question her value and always know she was made from the fiercest love! #2moms #lifegoals #firstbirthday," she wrote on Facebook

Toya and Ally announced they were expecting in a sweet post shared on Instagram in early 2022. 

"I love you my gorgeous @alissonchaig doing this with you is one of the most incredible experiences, I couldn't have chosen a better soul to build umuzi kamama.. Here's to the part called Motherhood. LIVUMILE. We're pregnant, I'm gonna be a MOMMY," Toya wrote. 

The couple got engaged in October 2021 and tied the knot shortly after. Toya popped the question while celebrating their 10-year anniversary.
