Pearl Thusi is realising her dream of adopting “lots of babies” and giving them a loving home. The ‘Queen Sono’ actress reportedly has plans to add another child to her family.
According to the Sunday World, Pearl has reportedly started a legal process to adopt a five-year-old girl.
She is reportedly the daughter of a relative who is recovering from drug addiction.
Pearl has allegedly asked the Johannesburg High Court to grant her parental responsibility and guardianship.
The little girl is reportedly already living with the actress.
Mothers are like heroes
Pearl has always expressed her desire to adopt. “#whenigrowup I wanna adopt lots of babies and pay for ppls school fees!” she tweeted in 2010.

The 33-year-old adopted her first child, Okuhlekonke, in 2018. Pearl is notoriously private when it comes to her family affairs, and kept the adoption a secret for months.
But Pearl has been gushing nonstop about Okuhle, as the family calls her, since confirming the adoption.
“I can’t believe an imperfect person got to experience a perfect love… thank you for coming into this world and into our lives. I’m proud to be your mother and honoured to call you my daughter.”

Pearl is also a mom to 13-year-old Thandolwethu, whom she shares with Walter Mokoena.
“Mothers are like heroes… They’re not only born. They can also become. Be made. Not only by blood, but by love. By kindness. Bravery. Compassion. As an African woman, I believe every child deserves love. Your nameless neighbour mothered you. And every child was watched and protected by the community,” Pearl said in 2019.
