Introducing Danielle Maropeng Molotsi

Our baby girl was born today at 5:22pm. She was 7 lbs 7 oz and 20" long.

She's named Danielle after Michelle's late father Danilo. Her middle name Maropeng means "the place where we once lived" in Sotho and is the name of my mother's eldest sister (also deceased).

Her name is a very moving and beautiful tribute. She'll be very curious about her extended family when she's older.

Congratulations! I must say she looks like Jubei when he was born. I can't wait to see my niece and introduce her to her cousin Jubei.
