Mwende is a proud mum as her son turns five she couldn’t help but reminisce on her journey to motherhood.
She took to her Instagram to celebrate him with this sweet message, narrating her first reaction when the doctor informed her she was expectant and how the journey has been since then.
“The day the doctor told me I was pregnant I was so overwhelmed and shocked I laughed.
The day I first saw him and held him in my arms I laughed again.The day I saw him take his first step I laughed.
The day he called me mommy I laughed.
As i am writing this I am overjoyed, overwhelmed with laughter as I reminsce of how much joy Champion has brought into my life.
Every day of the last 5 years have been nothing but joy and love because of my baby boy.
Today I am so sure we will laugh alot with him as we celebrate his 5th birthday!God is sooo good!
Happy birthday my love.”
In a previous interview with The Standard, Mwende had opened up on how her baby daddy J Blessing reacted after she broke the pregnancy news.
Mwende explains that she had never imagined herself as a single mother. She says
“We were engaged, I had met his parents in Diani and we were set to get married,” Mwende narrates. “I kept asking him to define the relationship but he wasn’t forthcoming.
I later discovered that I was pregnant. All my life, I had not imagined myself as a single mother and so I called him immediately. He came to my house and told me he had moved on. I was very bitter. I threatened to abort, but he pleaded with me not to, promising to support the child.”
Love pushes us to the farthest of edges given the fact that she had contemplated abortion but, she gave birth to a boy, Champion Blessing.
