On Sunday, December 20, 2020, Kenyan fitness trainer Frankie Kiarie alias Frankie JustGymIt and his girlfriend Corazon Kwamboka excited netizens with adorable never seen before pictures of their son, Taiyari Kiarie. This is the first time they unveiled his face to their fans. The jolly couple shared baby Tai's pictures on their respective social media pages and immediately stole the hearts of many.
Speaking on his YouTube, Frankie explained his decision to post his son on social media and why he could not do it earlier.
"This is something that we have been thinking of doing for a long time. Obviously now he is four months but we had thought of doing it when he turned 2 months but the guys who were helping us do this photoshoot were unavailable at the time.
"The reason I was kind of nervous when it came to him having this photoshoot at 4 months is because you know once they are abit older it's kind of hard to get them to do those poses and all that. You can't really manipulate them as much as you can when they are tiny. But also when they are older their features are more visible, I mean that's how they actually look now," he said.
Who does Taiyari resemble?
According to the social media sensation, Taiyari resembles Frankie than he does his mother.
"I feel he looks like me and she feels he looks like her. Okay for me I think like the mouth area and the nose and the ears pretty much look like me. He has also taken my skin tone as well, I think. For her she says the head, that's her head shape, the eyes… that's just Corazon," he added.
The couple welcomed their son on August 3, 2020, 12 days earlier than they expected after noticing he was not moving in the belly. Corazon's blood pressure also rose at a dangerously high rate. She was wheeled into the theatre for an emergency C-section and safely delivered her son.
"I am in the hospital right now she is in the surgery room so it is a C-section. It is 7:36 am. We thought it would be on August 15 but August 3 is the day. And it is at a healthy stage. She wanted a natural birth but we are still okay. Life is what happens when you are busy planning," said Frankie.
Meaning behind son's name
During their gender reveal, Corazon said she chose to name her child Taiyari meaning 'our love' in Spanish, and if she were to have a girl, they'd call her Kesia.
"I'm almost 22 weeks and we are about to find out if it's a boy or a girl. I will Love them, if it's a girl we gonna name her Kesia and if it's a boy we are going to name him Tayari which means our love in Spanish," she said.
