Her post was quickly filled with warm wishes from her celebrity friends and fans alike.

“Wow! Congrats!” wrote media personality Nick Ndeda.

“Congratulations hun, so happy for you both,” wrote actor Lenana Kariba.

Her significant other also shared the news on his social media, posting a sweet photograph of the couple in matching white outfits.

“She said yes! So excited for this next chapter,” wrote Kimemia as Gachuhi responded to the post with a trail of heart emojis and a simple ‘Yes’.


Her fiancé is a musician who has released several gospel tracks, including ‘Nitatembea Nawe’ and ‘Nena Nami’, which featured his soon-to-be wife.

Nena Nami was well received by fans who were eager to hear the popular actress’s voice, commending it as refreshing.

“Didn’t know Celestine can sing, big up bro, sauti nyororo,” wrote an Instagram user going by the name Minjire.

“Lovely couple,” wrote Steph Kimani.

Gichuhi went on to comment on her partner's post promoting the track with heart and fire emojis.

His music, however, remains socially conscious and based on Christian teachings and beliefs.
