Comedian Oliver Otieno aka YY has announced the arrival of his daughter. Sharing the news on social media, YY posted a photo of his girlfriend Marya, showering her with praises for safely delivering their bundle of joy.

In the post, YY described Marya, who is an Interior Designer, as a selfless human.

“The mother to the daughter of a King?... stronger than a Moissanite...I would have played you a song but you holding my guitar in your hand...I can't tell you enough how much I honor your selflessness,” he wrote in part.

YY went on to promise to take Marya on a vacation to a destination of her choice but jokingly requested her not to choose a place outside Nairobi.

“Thank you for pushing....I want you to choose a destination you would love to visit..na isikuwe nje ya Nairobi please ni January @officialmarya_1,” he said.

The two have been an item for a while but preferred to keep their relationship under wraps.

A number of celebrities took to the comment section to congratulate the couple and wished them well in their new chapter of parenthood.

This comes just hours after another celebrity couple, Kabi and Milly WaJesus announced that they are expecting their second child.

After dishing out a teaser on their socials, the couple finally shared the exciting news via their YouTube channel.

The same message was replicated on a huge billboard that read, ‘The WaJesus family is growing.’

“We are super happy to finally share the exciting news with our online family. The WAJESUS FAMILY IS GROWING AND WE GIVE GOD ALL THE GLORY.

“He has chosen us to be parents once more and knit together a little one to join our family,” the couple wrote.

Kabi said it took a while to plan the surprise and he thought a billboard would serve the purpose.
