You are able to spend lockdown with any one celebrity in South Africa. Which celebrity do you choose?

Any celebrity who can do a fresh set of gel nails and cut hair and create Instagram-ready home decor. I missed my pampering during lockdown!

I baked a vanilla coconut loaf and iced it. My son helped put sprinkles on it and we ate it all up!

What is the one thing you cannot wait to do once lockdown is over?

Take my little boy to the zoo. Or the Planetarium. Or to the beach.

What has caught your attention on social media this week?

The unbelievable fear women have to live under because of gender-based violence. It’s been highlighted a lot again this week, which shows how much work still needs to be done.

The one moment you regret in your life is...?

Truly, I regret nothing.

What series should every South African be watching right now?

Look, I wish I could be more highbrow, but 90 Day Fiancé is such a vibe!

Your celebrity crush growing up was...?

TJ Jackson.

If there was one thing that this lockdown has taught you it’s?

We need less than we think. And family trumps everything.

What is one thing people don’t know about Pabi Moloi?

Not much.

I’ve been an open book throughout my career.

The best and worst thing about being a parent is...?

The best is also the worst.

When you love someone so much you want to do anything and everything to care for and protect them, it's the entire purpose of your life.

That, and also where to get storage for ALL the incredibly cute pictures of the little one!
