Maureen Waititu had her tough year as far as relationships go after her break-up with pumped baby daddy, Frankie Kiarie. The YouTuber was recently interviewed by Parents magazine and had some interesting things to say about the break-down of her relationship and her life after it.
One of those was why she had decided to pose in racy lingerie and bikini photos that caused ripples on Instagram. The pictures were posted weeks after separating with Frankie JustGymIt. ‘
This led to speculation that she was flaunting her ‘revenge body’ to make her ex feel some type of way. But that wasn’t the case, as she explained in the interview.
The mother of two revealed that the shoot had been scheduled sometime prior to the break-up and was already on the calendar. Since she didn’t want to wallow ins self-pity, she decided to the shoot even as she struggled with her self-esteem.
‘I had planned that shoot months prior to the separation and I could not back out because that meant I was allowing myself to wallow in self-pity. The goal was to remind people not to be too hard on themselves because everyone’s body is different. For people dealing with weight, sometimes the reason is that you had babies, which is a beautiful thing, sometimes it’s because of sickness and medication and it could also be genes. It was also a personal reminder because my self-esteem is not where it used to be,’ Maureen said.
It is good that Maureen did the shoot, as I am sure it will encourage many who have given birth and have felt insecure about their bodies.
