Former Citizen TV news anchor Jacque Maribe recently recalled her unplanned unplanned pregnancy with comic Eric Omondi.
In a social media post while marking his son’s birthday, the media personality disclosed that she was in South Africa when he developed signs of a pregnancy.
Maribe disclosed that she was throwing up but ruled out the possibility being pregnant because Eric has suggested they wait before having a kid.
“One day, while in South Africa, a good friend of mine Brian Baraka told me, “uko na mood swings kama za mtu ako na mimba.” We laughed but to be honest it was the hardest trip I did, I was throwing up literally all the time. But I didn’t think I could have been pregnant because baby daddy Eric Omondi had said we wait a while,” she wrote in part.
The media personality then jetted back to the country, celebrated her birthday and resumed her duties until May 14, 2014 when she gave birth to her son.
“Then May 2014. See, I had gone through miscarriages. During this pregnancy every single day was a blessing. I chose 14th, and boom, this cute child of mine came,” she added.
Maribe went ahead to express how much she loves her son, noting that she would have lost him during the pregnancy.
“I am very particular about my son. I am so invested in his well being. I am his mother not for the name but for his life. So many times I would have lost him during that pregnancy
“So when you see me being an overly protective mum, you know. And anyone who harms my child is the devil reincarnated,” she concluded.
