Talented Gospel musician Evelyn Wanjiru has opened up about the pain she went through in a long period of time when she and her husband were trying to have a baby without success.
The multi-award-winning singer, was speaking to Radio Jambo's Massawe Japanni where she revealed that it took her a decade of being married for her to get her first child.
She said the issue of childlessness began to bother her after six years of being married.
"After six years I started to wonder why I wasn't conceiving. My period would be gone in three to four months. I went to the hospital where the doctor prescribed medicine to help me get my period on time," Wanjiru told Massawe.
The musician said she began to worry after seeing that she and her husband were getting older. She admitted that it pained her to realize that in her case, it was impossible for her to give her husband a baby.
"As I turned 30 I felt very nervous. That was when my heart started worrying," she said.
Wanjiru said her husband always used to encourage her to go to the hospital for tests and treatment.
She explained that she had taken medication to correct her hormonal imbalance for about two years.
"The doctor advised me to take the medicine for six months. Six months later I was still not getting pregnant. The doctor wanted me to calm down but I could not calm down, I wanted a baby!" she said.
The singer said she found out about her pregnancy last year while on a tour in the United States.
The news made her very happy however, she did not know how to celebrate as she had been waiting for so long.
The lovely couple welcomed their first child back in April this year. The couple met in church in 2008 in Nakuru, dated for four years, and then held a simple wedding.
