Media personality Jacque Maribe was over the moon as her son turned a year older today. Taking to social media, the mother of one revealed that her life took a forever turn eight years ago. But, looking back, Maribe describes the journey as one that is full of God's favor.
Maribe says holding her baby for the first time gave her a sense of purpose and meaning, a feeling she has loved every single second since then.
"8 years ago today, my life as I knew it changed completely, for the better. A new title, I found true love, I found purpose and meaning. I became a mum, forthwith, mama Zahari. And I have loved every minute of this journey," she wrote.
Reminiscing the day she named her son Zahari, Maribe further revealed that her son's name means 'God has remembered,' adding that she is proud to have picked that particular name for her son as it has been of significance to both of them.
"Zahari - meaning God has Remembered. I couldn't have picked a better name for you, my son. And through our journey, God has faithfully remembered," she added.
Maribe admitted that she has endless love for her son, and nothing could ever come between them.
"I love you more than all the words in all the books in the whole wide world. Happy 8th birthday, King Zee!!" she said.

Late last year, Jacque made it public that Eric Omondi was the father of her son. However, in a twist of events, Eric publicly said that he had been requesting a paternity test for almost seven years to confirm that he was indeed the child's father.
"For seven years I have begged Jacque to allow us have a DNA Test and she has continually refused!!! I don't mind supporting the child but if you want me to be fully present and supportive, if you want me to be a father. Then we have to do the right thing," he wrote.
The two reconciled and announced that they had settled the matter within themselves and decided to raise their child together peacefully.
"Life...it has its ups and downs but with communication, tolerance, understanding and true friends like @kabusimon, @ericomondi and I can now move forward. Thanks Fam," Maribe wrote.
