Being a single mother is not something Bridget Achieng planned but that is what life handed her and she wishes things would have been different.
Bridget who is a mother to a handsome son called Sekani, said that she can never be the father her son needs no matter what she does.
Speaking during an interview on Radio Jambo, Bridget said
‘We can seat here and lie, sometimes my friends visit and my son wants to go with them.
I can never be his father. And that is why at some point I break down.
If his father decided to come back and take care of the kids I will appreciate.’
On whether she is dating again.
‘He (Sekani’s dad) messed me mentally and even when a man tells me he loves me nowadays I do not believe it.
Only time will tell.’
On whether she and her baby daddy are still together Bridget said,
‘Hatujaachana because he will always be the father of my son. He left social media because he was badly trolled for how he treated me.
Our paths were just different.’
Bridget who had in a first time mum had opened up how tough it was for her to conceive adding she tried for five years.
But as they say ‘Mungu Hamwachi mja wake.’
