Kelly Khumalo’s alleged ‘3rd baby daddy’: Inside Yende’s soft life
Kelly Khumalo, a renowned South African singer, has recently given birth to her third child, and rumors suggest that the father, or “baby daddy,” is former Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Mthokozisi Yende. Here are five things to know about him.
Speculations about Kelly Khumalo’s pregnancy arose when she shared photos of herself performing on December 5, where fans noticed what appeared to be a baby bump. Fueling the rumors, Kelly later posted a photo on Instagram, showing herself carrying a baby in a car seat, hinting at the arrival of her third child.
According to reports from Zimoja, Mthokozisi Yende, a midfielder for Kaizer Chiefs, is believed to be the father of Kelly’s child. The rumors of their relationship started circulating in July 2021 when social media users noticed that both Kelly and Mthokozisi had posted photos from the same location around the same time.

Despite the speculations, Mthokozisi Yende has not shared any photos of Kelly or the baby on his Instagram account, leaving it uncertain whether he is indeed the biological father.
Apart from his rumored involvement with Kelly Khumalo, Mthokozisi Yende had a career in professional soccer. After his release from Amakhosi in 2013, Yende largely disappeared from the soccer scene. However, in October 2022, he made headlines by revealing that he had a relationship with his boss’s mistress, Robert Marawa, during an appearance on the SuperSport show “Sitting With Stan.”
While his soccer career may have slowed down, Mthokozisi Yende leads a luxurious and indulgent lifestyle, as evident from his Instagram posts.
