kia johnson enjoying her pregnancy

Kia Johnson, The Expresso Show Pregnant 01

Over the moon about having a baby girl, The Expresso Show‘s Kia Johnson is enjoying her first pregnancy and looking radiant. With her little baby kicking and moving around in her tummy at 28 weeks, Kia keeps to a controlled diet and ensures that she eats at regular intervals to offset nausea. She also works out to keep fit, but is cautious not to overexert herself. As a presenter on a breakfast show, Kia’s little one, who’s name is not yet decided, tends to be awake at the time of the show and is usually kicking and moving around. This is both an emotional and exciting time for Kia Johnson, as she ventures into new community projects which will be revealed in due time and as she brings her bundle of joy into the world. “I’m getting very emotional at times bursting into tears as my hormones are going a little crazy and the anticipation of bringing this life into the world has me aware of so many things in the world. When I think of these things I fill up with fear for my daughter, hoping I can protect her as much as possible.  I also wonder what she’s going to think of me as her mother” says Johnson.

moments with liezel van der westhuizen

Liezel van der Westhuizen 01

SABC3‘s The Expresso Show presenter Liezel van der Westhuizen has become a house hold name in South Africa for her television and radio work, but this bombshell has proven that she has a lot more to offer. Earlier this year, van der Westhuizen completed The Ultimate Duzi Canoe Marathon held in KZN, her second consecutive Duzi Marathon and is know training for the Cape Argus Pick n Pay Cycle Tour 2012. A first this year, she’ll be riding a custom-fitted techno-wonder bike that will be powered entirely by social media and it will be up to the public to get her across the finish line. In conjunction with the Cycle Tour, Pick ‘n Pay‘s digital marketing team have created the ‘Like Bike’. A bike powered solely by “likes” on the Pick ‘n Pay Facebook Page. For every “like” Liezel receives, 10 meters will be added to the distance she is able to ride on race day, Sunday 11 March 2012.

Likes” work like any other fuel, without them Liezel will have to cool her heels until a supporter tops up her tank. By logging onto the Pick ‘n Pay Facebook site (or on a mobile device) and “liking” the bike you will do your bit to propel the bike and Liezel 10 meters closer to the finish line. Additionally, every 10 Km that she completes, the Pick ‘n Pay Velokhaya Life Cycling Academy, which focuses on getting youngsters from disadvantaged backgrounds on their bikes and cycling, will receive a brand new bike and with a total distance of 110Km, 11 bikes will be donated if the Like Bike makes it all the way.

Here’s a quick fun video with Liezel… JustForTheNostalgia

Catch Liezel van der Westhuizen on SABC3’s The Expresso Show week day mornings at 5:30am and on 567KFM and follow her on Facebook and Twitter.
