Comedian Eric Omondi has shared that he is expecting his first child with his girlfriend Lynne.
Through social media, Eric shared that even though it has taken him 41 years to have a child of his own, he is looking forward to the parenthood journey.
“It has taken me 41 years but finally God has blessed me with my own. The Fruit of my loins. I feel like Sarah of Abraham of the Bible, she waited all her life for a child of her own. Thank you, baby, for making me a father❤❤????. And to God thank you for returning our baby to us,” he wrote.
Sharing the news on social media, Lynne revealed that her phone has been blowing up with good wishes messages from friends who found out about the pregnancy today. She added that she had been deliberately hiding the pregnancy.
