Speaking about it he wrote

Two days ago, I received an anonymous call that my biological father, who I never knew, has 3-6 months to live. I’ve lived my entire life hating this man. He and my biological mother gave me up for adoption, and it left me never feeling good enough….to this very day. I took my hate for him and used it as fuel to be the best father I could be for my own.

‘I’d gotten used to disappointments’ Gabrielle Union on years of infertility

Gabrielle Union recently opened on the challenges women battling infertility deal with herself included.

The mother of one has had 9 miscarriages and several failed IVF attempts.

According to Gabriel, not being a mother should not be a measure of a woman’s worth. Adding that events such as Mother’s day only increases pain for ‘childless’ women.

The actress who was on a promotional tour for her latest series L.A.’S finest says

I think for a lot of people who have been on a fertility journey, Mother’s Day brings so much pain.

It just feels like a sick joke, of all of your, “I’m using my finger quotes here,” “failures” as a woman. 

‘And when people are like, ‘You’re not complete until you become a mom,” and you’re like, “D***, do I have any worth?” So Mother’s Day just brings all of that up.

Celebrity parents who are turning parenthood into business!

Gabriel adds

So trying to keep that in mind, you know at 46, celebrating my first Mother’s Day, my family were like, “Well, You’ve been celebrating Mother’s Day with the boys as a step mother!”

I was like, “But there is no Step Mother’s Day. You gotta stay in your lane.”‘

‘Ya, I’m doing the work, I’m in the trenches but it’s not my day.

With Kaav, it felt like this is a day that I’m okay to celebrate loud and proud and stand out front. But I also tried not to lose sight of .

For a lot of people it’s a very painful day.

On mothers day Gabrielle shared a post on how she had gotten used to heartbreak and disappointments before her daughter was born.

I’ve cried so many times today for so many reasons, mainly because I’d gotten accustomed to heartbreak and disappointment. I think alot of us live in that space.

I set up shop there. This moment reminded me that miracles do happen. You cant age out of joy. You are worthy. You are worthy.

You are worthy. Sending so much love today to all the mamas, stepmamas, grandmas, aunties real and play, daddies, friends and anyone who has taken the time to nurture another living soul.

I see you, I gotchu. And to those who have lost their mamas, grandmas, mother figures, sending extra love and light and hugs your way. 🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗🤗

Natural ways of boosting your fertility

Infertility is really a big threat to relationship especially to married couples. A happy family is complete when there are children in it. There are various natural ways of boosting fertility which includes observing your diet. They include;

Diet

It is generally healthy for one to have a healthy nutritious diet. One is required to feed more on vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains and protein foods. This is because these foods contain antioxidants.

Antioxidants help in deactivating the free radicals that can damage both the sperm and egg cell which can cause infertility. It is also recommended to eat a bigger breakfast before starting the day as it may improve hormonal balance.

 ‘I made the decision too late’ Eunice Njeri on walking out of her marriage

Eating heavy meals in the evening can also lead to overweight. Foods rich in fibre is also important as it helps to keep the blood sugar balanced and also gets rid of excess hormones that can lead to infertility.

It is also important to eat foods with lower carbs as they help to reduce insulin levels and helps in menstrual regularity. This makes your fertility on a safer level.

Healthy weight

Always observe your weight when feeding, you should not be either overweight or underweight. When you are overweight or underweight, you have high chances of having longer cycle lengths hence difficult to get pregnant.

When you are overweight it means that you got a lot of fats in your body and it influences your menstrual function. Studies state that obese women have lower chances of getting pregnant.

‘Every marriage has a price to pay’ Says Muliro’s ex husband Eric Omba

However, it is possible for one to acquire the required health weight. This is by engaging in exercising on a daily basis. When you engage in exercises it makes your body active hence reducing chances of infertility in your body.

Take time to relax

It is important to have time to relax once in a while. When you are stressed, depressed or working under high pressure you are not likely to conceive.

This is due to the hormonal changes that take place in your body when stressed. Have some time to rest once a while and have enough sleep and avoid overworking yourself.

‘I had given up on ever having children of our own’ Dj Soxxy Opens Up About His Miracle Babies After Wife’s Battle With PCOs

Celebrated gospel DJ  Soxxy opened up about the struggle they went through as a couple to conceive, due to his wife’s medical history with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) .

Born Jackson Kamau but known to many as Soxxy, the gospel DJ has been married to Anne Kamau for the last 6 years and together they have two kids. The couple who got married in June 2014, had their life planned out but what they did not know is that GOD had other plans for them.

13879384_10154553861821535_8692354828567555367_n

He says

Like any relationship, it has not been easy. I remember when we were getting to know each other, she confided in me that she may never be able to have children because of a condition she had, called PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). At that point, I didn’t even consider what she had just told me because having children or not was not a big deal to me and at that point I hadn’t thought she was going to be my wife. Perhaps it was love that was clouding my judgement, because after all, they say love makes you do and say very foolish things.”

‘If I’m destined to die on a certain day, nothing can change that’ Says DPP Noordin Haji as he confesses on being sent threats by Al Shabaab

In the beginning of the young marriage, the couple had decided to delay getting kids so that they could at least enjoy each others company. That did not bother DJ Soxxy, but it did bother his wife. He says

“Once in a while she would hint that we should start trying for a child but I would be adamant because we had agreed on how long we will wait. Slowly Anne began to get depressed and the roughest season in our marriage began.”

DJ Soxxy and his wife

Anne’s depression was the push that Soxxy needed to start trying for a baby

I gave in and we started trying for a baby. In that season I realized why people say “mtoto ni zawadi kutoka kwa Mungu.” (Children are a gift from God). We always assume that it’s the contraceptive that allows you or keeps you from not being able to conceive but alas, I came to realize that conception is one of those things only God, the Giver of life, can do.”

Days passed, weeks, months, years yet nothing. All this time Soxxy’s wife was on constant medical attention, moving from one drug to another and yet none of the interventions were working.

The frustrations, helplessness began causing a rift in their young marriage because Anne felt like he was not supporting her enough.

I did not know what else to do, considering I always accompanied her to her doctor’s appointments, listened to her when she needed to vent and gave her a shoulder to cry on.”

Jacque Maribe’s friends are nowhere to be seen despite her arrest and here is what Classic 105’s fans think about it:Audio

Their  house became a warehouse for pregnancy test kits because apparently his wife felt kits sold locally were substandard and sent a friend in the UK to buy her dozens of pregnancy kits.

On the issue of PCOS DJ Soxxy says,

“The problem with the PCOS condition is that the hormones lie to the body that it is pregnant, hence at times when my wife would do the home test, the kit would show that she is pregnant only for her hopes to be shattered when she goes to the gynaecologist and she is told there was nothing.”

He continues

“At one point, I began wondering if perhaps I was the one who had a problem (not a very common thought among our species). You know we always laugh about the phrase “shooting blanks” but at that point this had stopped being a laughing matter. I started researching about it and looking around to find out if there was any man in my circles who had ever gone for a fertility procedure and what it entailed.”

Vasectomy-no-sperm-600x479

He adds that with time [email protected] which was supposed to be enjoyed turned into a dread session given that he started feeling inadequate.DJ Soxxy says

“I started feeling like an “insufficient” sperm donor. The doctors advise did not help me much as he recommended that we have sex on a schedule. Trust me even though this may have meant more sex it wasn’t as good as it sounds. Woe unto me if I came home late or dared to say I was tired! That would be cause for us to fight for the rest of the month and yes still perform my “rightful duty” nonetheless. She even started doing weird things like keeping her legs up for like 30 minutes after a session to assist the “boys” swim deeper. (There are things we men will never understand 🙂).”

Trouble conceiving affected the couple so much to the extent of them avoiding social gatherings or even the church to avoid uninvited questions.

How DJ Soxxy’s Wife Gave Birth To 2 Kids After Suffering From This Terrible Infertility Disease

“My wife didn’t want people asking her why we were ‘keeping them’ and not getting babies. Anytime someone jokingly commented “Mumetuweka sana, mnangojea nini?” (Why are you keeping us waiting), I knew that was the end of that day and the week ahead would be hell.”

This went on for months. More tears, more pregnancy tests, more doctors’ visits until the doctor finally made the call and told them, ”I have done everything possible as a doctor to help you guys conceive and now we need to look at other alternatives.

He gave  two options; we try IVF (In Vitro Fertilization- an assisted reproductive technology of fertilization by extracting eggs, retrieving a sperm sample, and then manually combining an egg and sperm in a laboratory dish) or surgery both of which were still not 100% guarantee.”

Soxxy adds

“At this point Anne and I had given up on ever having children of our own and all we could do is pray and wait. I remember coming home from work in December only to find 3 pregnancy kits on our bed all indicating positive – I would know! I had become somewhat an expert pregnancy kit reader. I asked whose pregnancy kits they were as if they could have been someone else’s.”

djsoxxykids

Even with the evidence of the three kits, the couple refrained from getting too excited to avoid dashed hopes. The couple decided to give it sometime before visiting a gynaecologist.

We were pregnant! The doctor was possibly more excited about the good news than we were. What a journey!  “People often lightly say that the final report is not the doctors, but God’s.” For us these words will remain very dear for ages to come.

The couple is now blessed with two kids Eliana Wairimu whom they consider a miracle baby and Ethan Wambage.

Rudisha took to alcohol to try and overcome the myriad of challenges that were heavily stacking up in his life including being off the track and parting with his wife Elizabeth Naanyu in 2016.

“The pressure became too hard. I used to hang out with friends and party a lot,” Rudisha told BBC.

Perhaps the most devastating and recent blow to the athlete came earlier this year in March when he lost his father, Daniel Rudisha, whom he described as his biggest source of inspiration in his career.

 He died two weeks ago from heart attack at Nakuru War Memorial Hospital. The elder Rudisha himself was a stellar athlete who represented Kenya at the highest level internationally.

The late Rudisha represented the country during the 1964 Commonwealth Games in 1964 in Kingston, Jamaica.

“He played a big role in my life. He gave me the passion to love the sport and taught me discipline and respect towards fellow athletes,” Rudisha said.

The Olympic champion said his father was his greatest strength and encouraged even when he failed – something which Rudisha says made him be the star he is today.

In 1968 alongside Hezekiah Nyamao, Charles Asati and the late Naftali Bon, Rudisha won silver in the 4×400 relay.

Daniel Rudisha’s greatest accolade came during the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich where he won gold with Charles Asati, Hezekiah Nyamao, Robert Ouko and the late Julius Sang in the relay event.

‘I yelled, I begged,’ Kibera man tells of how his daughter was gang raped

A Kenyan man has narrated how he begged intruders to spare his 13-year-old daughter, as they dragged her into the night and gang-raped her.

But that was not before they repeatedly drove nails into his head.

The man said the thugs quickly ransacked the house, picking valuables such as phones while another went into the bedroom where his daughter was.

“It was the night of February 4, 2014, when a group of men hit my door with a big stone sending it gaping. Some got inside while two remained at the door to keep guard.

He was badly scarred and left for dead.” the father told a Kibera court on Friday.

He said the man came out of the bedroom pulling his daughter, but when he pleaded with them to release her, it only earned him a nail in the head.

The father helplessly watched the intruders take his daughter away as he lay in pain.

“One of the men had a wooden frame with nails in it. He used that to hit me, driving the nails in and out of my head,” he said.

I yelled, I begged, I shouted, but every attempt earned me more nails in my head. Sometimes, they used a knife to stab me. The more I acted, the angrier they got.

Eventually, they left me writhing in pain as they disappeared into the darkness with my daughter,” he told the court.

The man told Kibera senior resident magistrate Barbara Ojoo that he dragged himself to his brother who lived nearby.

He found him and his wife and told them about the attack. They went to the police station the following day where they reported the attack before embarking on a search for the daughter.

 After hours of searching, they found his daughter locked up in a house at a nearby plot crying in great pain. Inside the house was a picture of one Nelson, whom he knew very well.

“I know all the accused persons here. Nelson’s father is my personal friend,” he told the court. I together with other members of the family took her to Nairobi Women’s Hospital where she was treated and after that we began to look for the culprits,” he said.

They nailed my head and defiled my daughter, man tells court

The daughter wept as she testified.

“They appeared in my bedroom with a bright spotlight which they shone in my eyes. I was chatting on my phone which they grabbed ruthlessly,” she testified.

She screamed to alert her father, unaware that he had already been captured. She said they dragged her out of bed to the living room.

“He tried to defend me, but they nailed him in the head. One picked a knife and stabbed him and he fell down. They would punish him even when he turned his head to my direction,” she narrated.

All of them defiled me repeatedly, one keeping guard as the next jumped on me, at least three rounds.

It was very painful and when I screamed, they threatened to kill me. They ordered me to stay quiet for my own sake.”

The now 17-year-old told the court that they left her father took her to a nearby place with overgrown grass.

Then one of the thugs dragged her to a house, where they both spent the night.

“Nelson took me to his house and slept beside me the whole night. He did not touch me again. In the morning, he locked me inside and left until I was found by my uncle,” she said.

She said her uncle called other family members who broke into the house and rescued her. She identified the picture of Nelson that was hanging inside the house.

Her father took the photo which he used to find Nelson, one of the accused in the case.

“My friend called me and informed me that he had seen Nelson in a chang’aa den drinking. I sent him Sh50 and asked him to keep buying him alcohol as I sought police to arrest him,” the father said.

Nelson Vasereze, Charles Onzere and Abdi Mutua were arrested and charged with abducting, defiling or gang-raping a child and robbery with violence.

State counsel Nancy Kerubo said other accomplices are still at large. The case will proceed on November 27.

Co-wives? Lessons every man should borrow from John De Mathew -List

Sarafina Wairimu and Caroline Waithira, wives to the late Mugithi Maestro John De Mathew have proven it is possible to co-wives without fights.

Below are a few tips that worked for them that other men can pick from.

1. Introduce them to each other

One thing that makes polygamy effective is introducing them to each other, whether they get along or not they will at least know they are not the only ones.

Gone are the days when co-wives appear during burials.

 Speaking about her experience Caroline said that De Mathew gave her an ultimatum.

‘He called me one day and told me he wanted me to meet his first wife. I was reluctant but he told me if I refused I could not continue living with him.’

2. Do not bad mouth one wife to the other

No matter how bad things might get, do not bad mouth your first wive to your second wife. Just sort your issues or talk it out with someone else.

3. Do not teach the kids to be enemies

Kids have a mind of their own, so let them decide on their own if they want to be friends or not.

Sarafina, De Mathew’s first wife said that he never favoured the kids.

‘He would take our daughter shiku then pass by Caroline’s house and pick his son and take them out together.’

4. Let them create their own rapport

The temptation to want to force your wives on each other might be high but let them find their own way towards each other.

Speaking about their relationship Caroline, De Mathew’s second wife said that Sarafina reached out to her and that helped them be friends

‘She started texting how I was doing, before long we would bump into each other at the supermarket randomly,after that we started taking our kids for outings together.’

Sarafina added,

‘We became such good friends that our husband started becoming afraid of the friendship.’

‘He loved me to the end’ Read touching tribute from De Mathews 1st wife

 5. Love them equally

Loving one woman more than the other and showing it is a recipe for disaster.

According to De Mathew’s wives, he loved them equally

Caroline said,

 ‘When he was at Sarafina’s place he would give her shopping money for both of us and she would send it to me via Mpesa.

If she was at my place he would do the same , not once did he favour one of us more than the other.’

Things Diamond should do for his relationship with Tanasha to survive

Diamond Platnumz recently welcomed his fifth child with Kenyan damsel Tanasha Donna and we can’t help but notice his excitement.

He recently turned 30 and being a father of five is a huge responsibility, He has made his mistakes and below are things he should learn.

1. To keep his relationship off social media

If you haven’t noticed Diamond has in a way matured, he no longer blasts his critics on social media and he does not over post his bae Tanasha as he did in his previous relationship.

Now that he has turned 30 he needs to style up and avoid giving critics something to talk about.

2. To be engaged in his kid’s life.

Time and time again we have heard Diamond being accused of being absent in his kid’s lives.

He should try to make changes in his life by making himself present in the life of Tanasha’s son otherwise we will be on his case like a tick sticks on a cow.

3. To zip up.

We have all heard the phrase the internet never forgets, Being a celebrity means that things will be written about him every day.

Much has been written about him being ‘Father Abraham’ and fathering kids left, right and centre. It’s time he learnt to zip up.

4. Condomize it

No one gets a kid when all wrapped up unless your sperms are stronger than missiles used by North Korea to disrupt countries.

So one thing Diamond should do is to use condoms or advice Tanasha to get on family planning, she is still young asituzeeshee msichana wetu kwa kumzalisha.

5. Blasting his ex’ on the media and in his songs

Diamond has in the past blasted his ex’ on interviews and in his songs and that’s a habit he should drop ASAP.

The one thing he should keep doing is giving us dope music.

Mbarikiwe: Here is the new project Itumbi and Maribe are working on

Jacque Maribe has been off the limelight but that has not stopped her from extending a helping hand to the community alongside Dennis Itumbi.

Just recently a Kenyan woman reached out to Itumbi asking for help in terms of donations to run her Children’s home and Itumbi shared that Jacque had offered to help also.

Partly Itumbi wrote,

‘Pastor’s Moment: What do you need to have impact on society? (Long Post Alert)

Many times in my life I have known the answer, or so I thought, all you need is nothing, but a persistent will.

But yesterday evening, I met a waiter who taught me the most important lesson of life, ” You can have Influence, without Affluence.

You do not need wealth to change society, you just need to decide to do your part, with the little you have.

DENNIS-ITUMBI

 

 Complain less, reach out more and in all things start your influence where you are do not wait to get a podium higher,” the waiter told me.

Monica, began her texts in a unique manner, ” I want to tell you something, but first promise me you will not tell the President or DP”

‘If God gives me another child I am OK with it, but I am contented with Xolani,’ – Wilbroda

Itumbi added that the lady narrated how she saves her tips from her waitress job to help homeless kids.

The conversation that followed is my sermon today.

” Dennoh, I got a job as a waiter a few months ago. I am not paid much as you may know, but I get tips,” Monica started and I urged her on.

 I live in Dandora and two months ago, I started a programme that I hope will save several kids and grant them a chance in life,” Monica continued.

 So I started with shelter, I am paying rent for two houses of Shs.5,000 each, because I chose to separate the girls and the boys,” Monica continued.

 The actual cost is actually Shs. 4,500, it is the other costs such as tokens that are catered by the extra 500 bob,”

So, I ask how do you feed them and how many are they?

 Dennoh, these kids scavenge at the dump site, and at their age food is everything, so I have convinced them to go to school and that way they get free lunch,” Monica explained.

homeless kids

Monicah added that she sometimes buys goods in bulk adding that she wouldn’t mind some help

 

 

All I am asking for now is a mattress, “I need 10 of them size 4 by 6 ama 5 by 6, pia ukipata watu wanadonate food unaweza nishow, hii ni story Sisi tunaweza sort bila kuenda mbali sana,” Monica narrates.

“By the way to keep them busy, they have been cleaning the estate and our part of Nairobi river. We have also been planting trees,” Monica discloses and send pictures attached.

(Governor Mike Sonko. I am sure you can help Monica too…0

 

Itumbi went on to add Kenyans to help to state that he has already helped her by sending her cash but would go later to deliver mattresses.

 

‘Okay, am calling on you to sacrifice a meal, a beer or an outing, once a month and let’s give Monica 100 bob a month.

Are you willing to be part of #MonicaTouchingLives – comment below and be part of the #100BobMovement per month.

We can start immediately. If I get 700 of you we can make a difference together.

Tag a friend and let us send Monica 100 bob, also I will note those of you who offer to be part of this and create a team.

Just sent mine ….to Monica on +254 (0) 723253953

71314758_10221451368502033_3305782060819415040_nIn conclusion, he said that Jacque is accompanying her and we are impressed.

‘As for the mattresses, we will deliver the 10 of them with my good friend Jacque Maribe – I spoke to her and she has offered 6 of them as long as I look for the other 4.

Let us all Just be Us. Humanity.

God Bless You Monica, for reminding us that simple lesson, we just need passion and a will to hold someone else.’
