Who is Zephany Nurse and where is she now? | The Sun

ZEPHANY NURSE was 17 when she found out that she was not biologically related to her parents.

The shocking revelation introduced her to her birth parents, but that wasn't the end of the drama. This is what we know.

Who is Zephany Nurse?

Zephany Nurse was abducted from hospital at just three days old.

Nurse was reunited with her biological parents, Morne and Celeste Nurse, 17 years later on February 25, 2016, after DNA tests confirmed her identity.

What happened to Zephany Nurse?

Nurse was taken from her cot in the maternity ward at Groote Schuur Hospital by Lavona Solomon, on April 30 1997.

Solomon posed as a nurse in order to take her, and would end up raising her as her own child with her husband, Michael.

Michael was not aware of the kidnapping.

Initially reluctant to have more children, and terrified of giving birth at hospital, Celeste and Morné went on to have daughter Cassidy, born in 2001, then son Joshua, in 2006 and another daughter Micah, in 2007.

In February 2015, Zephany found out her pal at school Cassidy, was actually her biological sister after the pair snapped a selfie and realised they looked identical.

Her real identity only came to light when students at the Zwaanswyk High School spotted similarities between her and Cassidy.

Cassidy showed the photo to her parents Celeste and Morne who immediately thought Zephany could be their long-lost child- DNA tests revealed that indeed the two girls were sisters.

Where is Zephany Nurse now?

Although she admitted she initially cut off her birth parents, in support of the woman who raised her, she said she now enjoys a good relationship with both sides.

She has got married and had her first child, Sophia in 2017.

Celeste suggested that the birth of her own child has made Nurse understand parenting and how her mother must have felt when she was kidnapped.

As the family began to heal, Celeste and Morné also reunited and, in 2020, they tied the knot for a second time.

Lavona Solomon was jailed for 10 years in 2016 for the 1997 kidnapping.
