Gospel singer Daddy Owen and his Farida Wambui are the latest parents in town.
The power couple, who tied the knot early April in 2016 in a colourful wedding ceremony, has welcomed a bouncing baby boy.
Wambui gave birth at the Nairobi Hospital and mother and baby are in high spirits and recovering well.
The Vanity hit singer took to social media to share the great news with his followers and he wrote:
“Thank you LORD for blessing us with this little angel, though he may have the littlest feet but he makes the biggest footprints in our hearts! I decree and declare a blessing from above! You shall be the head and not the tail! You shall be more than a conqueror! God has a plan and a future for you!’.
Welcome my son! I believe you are a fisher of men and you carrying the biggest net! This is one of the best experience in my life. We never know the love of a parent until we become parents ourselves, Children bring us a piece of heaven on earth. Son, you fill a place in my heart that I never knew was empty… I love u so much! For real a baby is an inestimable blessing.. I dedicate my son to you LORD.”

The newborn is Daddy Owen’s second child while he’s the first baby to Farida. His birth comes barely a year after Owen’s father Josephat Mwatia, passed away. In a past interview, the singer revealed that he would name his child after his father.
