The excited Lukoma took it to her social media
pages to thank her husband and family.

confusion, faith, hope everything at once. One thing I am sure of, I know good
things happen to good people. I am trusting God. It is well with my soul. The
best baby gender reveal ever. Thank you Mr A.” she posted.
