Socialite and businesswoman Bridget Achieng revealed to Mpasho that at some point she thought she was barren.
The Nairobi D actress had tried looking to conceive a baby for five years.
Speaking during an interview with Mpasho, Bridget said an ex of hers actually dumped her because she couldn’t give him a child.
‘I thought I was a barren. I learnt I was pregnant with baby Sekani at two weeks, before then I had never thought of going to seek medical help.
I wanted a baby before i turned 30.’
By 29 I had no kids so I started asking myself
’29 is here I have no baby and my mum also wants a grand kid, what do I do?.
‘Before I learnt I was pregnant I started feeling funny, I took three pregnancy tests and they all turned out positive.
I then decided to go to a hospital and got the confirmation that I was one month pregnant.
I LOOKED FOR A BABY FOR FIVE YEARS. I TRIED GETTING ONE WITH MY FIRST BOYFRIEND BUT IT DIDN’T WORK.
I TRIED WITH MY SECOND BOYFRIEND, A NIGERIAN BUT IT DIDN’T WORK. MY THIRD BOYFRIEND, MY GHANIAN LEFT ME BECAUSE I COULDN’T GIVE HIM A BABY.
When I met Sekani’s dad, I couldn’t help but admire how good he looked. I asked ‘If we were to get babies wouldn’t they be handsome?’
Before long I was pregnant. He was OK with it but three months later he requested me to abort but I refused.’
Bridget added that Sekani’s paternal relatives are loving towards him.
‘His grand parents, uncles and relatives from my baby daddy’s side love him and at some point I had thought of relocating to Nigeria but am better of in our country.
My siblings and I are now orphans and I can’t leave them.
I still have a phobia. if he left me when pregnant what if I go to Nigeria and he decides to strangle me and remain with my boy?.
