Rotimi and Vanessa Mdee open up about sharing their children with the world

 Singer Rotimi, his partner Vanessa Mdee and their two children. 

American actor and singer Rotimi recently opened up about the decision to bring his two children into the public eye alongside his partner Vanessa Mdee.

Breaking from their previous stance of discretion, Rotimi took to Instagram on November 24, unveiling intimate family portraits that marked the public debut of their children on social media.

Reflecting on the timing of this revelation, Rotimi shared, "Finding the right moment to share my kids with the world was a thoughtful process... but today just felt like the right time. Vee and I deliberated extensively because the online world can be quite negative. However, after numerous discussions, we believed that love would prevail over any potential negativity."

Acknowledging the paramount concern for their children's safety, Rotimi added, "As a parent, the unwavering concern for your children’s safety is profound. After weighing various options and, of course, with ample prayers, we made the decision to stand firm and introduce our most precious gifts to the world... OUR CHILDREN ??."

The family's debut appearance showcased coordinated maroon outfits, with Vanessa exuding elegance in a high-slit dress and matching head wrap, while Rotimi and the children donned stylish, custom-made blue attire.

In a joint Instagram post, the couple expressed, "The greatest gifts we’ve ever received."

This public revelation departs from the couple's prior cautiousness regarding their children's visibility on social media. In May 2022, Rotimi and Vanessa underscored the importance of affording their children the privilege to grow up away from the public eye.

"We are celebrities, but our children never chose that life, and it comes with a lot of things. We are giving them a chance to know themselves. He is a young man. Let him grow up. It’s not like we are hiding him. You all know that he is there. He is our baby, he is our heart," said Vanessa.
