Blue Mbombo (born on 17 December 1989; Age: 32 years old) is a South African model, ex-reality TV star, creative producer, director, ambassador, and businesswoman best known for being a housemate on Big Brother Mzansi: Double Trouble edition.
The model’s personal life has been a subject of interest to the public since she revealed that she was expecting a baby with an undisclosed man. However, several sources have named South African millionaire Auswell Mashaba as the father of her child, an allegation Blue vehemently denied.
Blue Mbombo Hails From Johannesburg
Blue Mbombo’s hometown is Johannesburg. However, she was reportedly born in Kutlwanong, Free State, on 17 December 1989 to Mr. and Mrs. Mbombo. She is currently 32 years old. Although not much is known about her family background, the model is of mixed ancestry – she has Portuguese roots (her father is half Portuguese).
Blue’s original name is Azul Thandi Mbombo. She is also a twin. The name of her sister is Brown Mbombo. She is a socialite and influencer with an impressive number of followers on her Instagram page. The sisters are very close to each other and best of friends. Brown is a mother as well. She gave birth to a son some time ago. The twins have an elder brother whose identity is not publicly known.
The sisters changed their original names (Azul and Acastanho) to Blue and Brown, respectively, because people were finding it difficult to pronounce their names. Azul and Acastanho are Portuguese names for Blue and Brown.
Blue and her sister lost their father at a very young age. Their mother had to raise them singlehandedly, making sure they lived comfortably as most kids. The award-winning model once shared that life became a little bit tough for them after their father’s passing as they lived in a shack for several years.
Today, however, a lot has changed in her family as she and Brown have been able to build a comfortable home in their family. The names of the schools Blue had her elementary, and high school education are not publicly known. She attended Rosebank College, Johannesburg, where she pursued a course in public relations.

Blue Mbombo Made Her Shocking Pregnancy Announcement In Early 2022
News about the model’s pregnancy went viral immediately after she posted a short video of her growing bump on social media on the 14th of February 2022. She described her baby as a ‘perfect valentine’s day gift,’ adding that she had long wished and prayed for ‘an eternal love’ all her life.
Her announcement was met with so much love and heartwarming messages from her colleagues and fans, with most of them wishing her well in her motherhood journey. However, the model shied away from giving away details of her pregnancy and the father of the baby.
The Father Of The Model’s Baby Hasn’t Been Officially Unveiled
Blue succeeded in keeping many details about her pregnancy and the man who made her a mother away from the public. However, she announced on May 19th, 2022, that she had welcomed her baby girl (Dutchess) into the world via water birth.
The model did not mention the name of her baby daddy, which left her fans more curious. The internet started buzzing some days later after controversial blogger Musa Khawula disclosed that South African millionaire Auswell Mashaba was the father of Blue’s baby.
Reacting to the allegation, the model called out the blogger for lying for ‘likes and retweets’ and insinuated that Mashaba was not the father of her baby. She, however, declined to speak further on the paternity of her child.
No one knows if the rumor is true, as Blue hasn’t opened up publicly about the father of her child.

Blue Mbombo previously dated Mpumalanga Black Aces star Onyekachi Okonkwo. The two parted ways after she chose to go to Big Brother Mzansi over her boyfriend. It is said that Okonkwo didn’t support the idea of her going for the show, but she eventually did, and this led to their separation.
Blue also briefly dated rapper K2 after their moments on Big Brother Mzansi. Their relationship crashed after a short time. The creative producer once shared about being duped by an undisclosed boyfriend.
