Baby showers are a pretty big deal nowadays and Kenya celebrity couples are blowing them out of proportion in a showoff competition.
But this was not the case for Citizen TV’s presenter cum gospel singer Kambua who recently welcomed her firstborn without a baby shower.
The mother of one, however, has for the first time disclosed the reasons as to why baby Nathaniel’s birth was low key.
Taking to her Instagram account, Mama Nathaniel revealed that her family and friends had planned a baby shower but it backfired because the baby decided to come early then they expected.
“This past weekend my family came together and put up a most precious celebration for my little bub, Nathaniel Muhoro. Last year a baby shower was planned and it backfired 🤭 because the baby decided to come early! I’ll talk more about this someday,” she wrote.
“I’ve learned to unpack all my experiences slowly. He came early, but still right on time. I am eternally grateful for a healthy baby. God’s ways are perfect, and they are good.”
A few months ago, Kambua with her pastor husband Jackson Mathu welcomed their firstborn after being in a marriage for seven years without a child.
“For waiting wombs, pregnancy announcements can be serious triggers. I have lived it – how you just want to be so happy for others but somehow your own grief and struggle overwhelms you. My journey is a miracle whose details I still haven’t shared. One day I will. But as God continues to write my story and perfect what He began, let me share my heart with you. I’ve been around long enough and been through enough to know that pregnancy journeys are not perfect- far from it. They are messy, hope-filled, scary, joyful, and just very… complicated. I also know that for waiting wombs, pregnancy announcements can be serious triggers. I have lived it- how you just want to be so happy for others but somehow your grief and struggle overwhelms you,” she wrote.
