Former TV news anchor Jacque Maribe has shared her struggles before giving birth to her only child. In a social media post, the mother of one narrated how she had several miscarriages before successfully conceiving Zahari.
"Then May 2014. See, I had gone through miscarriages. During this pregnancy, every single day was a blessing. I chose 14th, and boom, this cute child of mine came," she wrote in part.
Maribe said there is nothing she cares about more than her son's well-being.
"I am very particular about my son. I am so invested in his well-being. I am his mother not for the name but for his life," she said.
Maribe said she is an overly protective mother who would do anything, to protect her son.
"So many times, I would have lost him during my pregnancy. So, when you see me being an overly protective mum, you know," she wrote.
Barely over a year ago, Maribe opened up about having a child with comedian Eric Omondi. In a detailed interview, she said that she and the father of her child were friends before they started dating.
"Eric and I were good friends for about five years before we made the decision to start dating. I am surprised nobody picked up on it because we never hid it. I went to his shows at the Carnivore Restaurant, we went places together. Nobody connected the dots until I was pregnant - that was when the story just blew up," said Maribe.
On matters of co-parenting, Maribe said she was initially hesitant to let Omondi into their son's life.
"I was afraid of letting him in that space because I did not want my child to go through heartache and being let down," she said.
