Gospel singer Kambua has revealed several women are asking why she decided to get pregnant too soon after having her first baby. In a lengthy Instagram posted, the mother of one explained that babies are miracles from God, adding that she didn't care about the gender of her second baby.
The Bado Nasimama singer and her husband, Pastor Jackson Mathu, welcomed their first child, a baby boy, Nathaniel Muhoro Mathu, in 2019 after struggling to have a child for seven years. Kambua told women that waiting that long to have a baby could change their perspective on many things in life.
"A number of you amazing women have asked me, "Kambua, how can you be so happy about baby #2 when you only recently had #1"? And they ask because they in different ways- and for valid reasons, are struggling to accept their own reality of being pregnant AGAIN in a short span of time. Allow me to say this for starters: When you've had to wait in line for even half as long as I did, trust me, your perspective on many things changes.
"Not to say that I haven't experienced my own level of anxiety, I have. But can you imagine what it feels like to literally see God change the script on your life? My babies are nothing short of miracles. Only God could do that. So I thank him every day for honoring me this way. It's for the same reason that I truly don't care if I get a boy, a girl, twins, triplets...all those are superficial to me. My desire was to have children. Period. Healthy, children," said Kambua.
Kambua also consoled women struggling to come to terms with getting pregnant sooner than they expected, saying that many women would give up everything to be in their shoes.
"I know that our stories are different. I'm sorry you are having such a hard time coming to terms with being pregnant again, but I pray that you come around soon enough to enjoy the blessing that you are carrying. I will not guilt you by telling you of the many who'd give anything to be in your shoes; I simply want to hug you with the love of God. I pray for grace, and I pray that God strengthens you. And if you need help, please seek it. You've got this mama. You've got this," added Kambua.
