Madiba and Jackie Matubia learned of their daughter’s gender during delivery

Blessing Lungaho alias Madiba says being among the newest dads in town is something he wouldn’t exchange for anything.

Speaking during an interview with People Daily, the father of two shared,

“I feel simply amazing I was hoping for the baby to be a girl from the jump. We did not know her gender until she arrived in the world.

In a past interview, Madiba had said she had deliberately asked his bae Matubia not to reveal the baby’s gender.

The couple wanted it to be a surprise.

The actor has a child from a previous relationship and is also parenting Matubia’s daughter from her first marriage.

Matubia had earlier revealed she got pregnant despite being on contraceptives.

She says the news caught her by surprise hence she did not know whether to be happy or sad about it.

She only found out she was expectant after she slid and fell during a night out with her friends.

She assumed she did not get hurt after the fall but she was hurt. Sharing her story via her YouTube channel the actress said,

I knew I was pregnant at 8 weeks. There is an event I went to and we partied hard. I went backstage and missed a step and fell. When I went to my friends I told them about it and we even laughed about it.”

Matubia did not know at the time that she was expectant. She only learned that a few days later.

The next day my left side butt cheek had a swelling. That day I just stayed indoors. The next day I wasn’t feeling well, I even thought I had covid. I had no appetite, and his cologne was irritating me. I was at a point where I never thought I could be pregnant again.”

Matubia says when she got to the hospital she was given different tests while waiting for the results.

“Between my last period and the time of conception, when I was getting pregnant I was on family planning (an injection)

The doctor told me I was 8 weeks pregnant, I froze when the doctor told me that. I did not know whether to laugh, cry or shout. Zahri’s (1st born) was something I had planned for. In This second pregnancy, I wasn’t ready because our relationship was just in the ‘honeymoon’ period.”

It’s a special moment how can you not want to be there?”

Mwalimu King’ang’i was however not impressed, he insisted the men should stay away from delivery rooms.

Men should stay outside the door and let their sister, your mum, your mum-in-law be there,” he said.

Mike said men are no use to their wives while in the delivery room.

“In most cases, they will end up being stressed out after the experience,” he said.

He watched a woman in the same room with his wife breath her last.

He was contributing to the Morning Conversation on Classic 105 where a female fan asked how she can keep her man ‘engaged’ during pregnancy.

“That is my current predicament. We had a baby 3 months ago and I can’t imagine myself going down there even though she is interested. But I can’t even imagine myself straying.

My advice to men is that we should not go to the maternity room when she is delivering.
There was a lady who was also in the delivery room giving birth and she died, I saw it and I think I am traumatized.
I had been sent to get cotton wool for my wife by the nurses.”

*Njoroge says he did everything for his wife until the last minute. For that, he had a happy wife who in turn delivered a healthy baby.

I did everything for my pregnant wife. I would give her massages, we would enjoy our conjugal rights till the last minute and she gives birth to very healthy babies. I have no side chick and I have never even thought of it.”

*Elias says intimacy is important as it not only brings the couple together.

“In some communities, it is a way of confirming whether the child is his or not. If they get intimate and something bad happens to the child then he is not the dad.”

Mike Mondo delivered over 90 babies during his days as a nurse

Classic 105 host Mike Mondo men should not be present in the delivery room when their wives are giving birth as delivery is not a rosy affair.

Mike says people should stop assuming that childbirth is what they see on movies or YouTube. Mondo who is a qualified nurse says that it is the women in your wife’s life who should be present.

Speaking during an interview with Kalondu Musyimi, he advised,

“Men should stay outside the door and let their sister, your mum, your mum-in-law be there,” he said.

Mike said men are of no use to their wives while in the delivery room.

“In most cases, they will end up being stressed out after the experience,” he said.

Talking about his experience as a nurse before he decided to join radio, Mike shared,

“During my time in the career, I delivered more than 90 babies as a nurse, and I would never encourage a man to be around. It is simple, would a woman be allowed to stay when her son is being circumcised?”

He also said he can never deliver his child since there are so many emotions. Mike Mondo worked as a nurse for a year at a Kilifi hospital.

That is when he moved to Nairobi and started looking for something else to do.

“I delivered over 90 babies, 11 breach deliveries. I have also assisted in Caesarean-section and have done normal deliveries,” he said.

Mike also addressed marriage, saying he would never force to be in one.

“I would want to pursue marriage. Do I believe in it? I don’t know yet, but I would love to pursue it, he said.

“Marriage is not for everyone and I say, don’t ever feel bad if you never get married. Enjoy that single life. Marriage in my opinion is not about falling in love and has nothing to do with love.”

Mike said marriage is when two people can handle each other.

“It is for companionship. It is not about the roses and so on. The most important thing is to be able to stick through it,” he said.

Kenyan celebrities who have been in the delivery rooms with their wives include Frankie Kiarie also known as Frankie JustGymIt, and DJ Moz also known as Kimathi Mathenge.

Also present in the delivery room was Kabi Wa Jesus, he has been present during the 2 deliveries of his wife Milly Wa Jesus.
