Amani never thought she would be a mum after struggling for so long to get pregnant.
Cecilia Wairimu alias Amani is a mum to a two year old, and loves her journey.
For Mothers day 2022, the singer returned to social media to pen a sweet message recalling her difficult journey to motherhood.
She penned how she struggled to conceive, and God heard her prayers. She advised those struggling to ‘trust God’.
‘Happy Mothers day to all the mothers …Once upon a time I thought I would never be mum…but God…Yahweh made it happen… God is not a respector of persons.What he can do for one,he can do for a another.For those trusting God for the fruit of the womb,he is still performing miracles .He will do it for you,keep believing. Yahweh is a good God. Today I also celebrate my mum,my mentor,my spiritual mum,my friend and so many other things.Mama I appreciate you,I love you.’
Cecilia miscarried back in 2019, and opened up about being disappointed below.
‘When I took this picture last year, I was pregnant but lost it. It hurt but, at that moment, I chose not to grumble or murmur or get angry. Though disappointed, I chose not to give up and lose faith,’ the singer said.
After 10 months of trying, Amani told that she became pregnant.
‘I had conceived after failing to conceive for a while. So, I realized that my season had come and it was just a matter of time. I thanked God in advance and the following month I conceived again and this time the pregnancy was sustained,’ she added.
Amani however remains secretive about her child and has never shared the gender or a picture.

The just released WorldRemit survey of customers sending money to Kenya reveals:
When asked who they send money to, 66% of those that responded said they send money to their mums in Kenya.
When asked when they last met their mother, 44% of those who responded said they haven’t seen them for at least 2 years.
99% of those who send money to their mothers celebrate Mother’s Day.
80% of those who celebrate Mother’s Day do so by sending their mother money.
Of those respondents who send their mom money for Mother’s Day, 84% also give their mum a call and 50% also send her a gift.
Last year, the Kenyan diaspora sent home over $2.7 billion, making remittances one of the top forex earners for the country.
Sharon Kinyanjui, Head of East and Central Africa at WorldRemit, said: “Mother’s Day is an important time for 3 million Kenyans living abroad to show their mums that they’re thinking of them. Our online money transfer service makes it easier to send money to your mom this Mother’s Day. Customers can make transfers at any time from anywhere with just a few taps on their smartphones.
