• "I was scared after hearing stereotypes that I should not engage in vigorous activities before 4 months." - Aggie the Dancequeen
Choreographer Aggie the Dancequeen has set tongues wagging about how flexible she is while pregnant. Speaking to Mpasho, Aggie said her flexibility is not something she has achieved overnight.
She added that people close to her were afraid that she could hurt the baby because of dancing.
"I have not even been working out. I felt like I should give the baby time, not to shake so much and scare the baby. I was scared after hearing stereotypes that I should not engage in vigorous activities before 4 months, but I couldn't just help it," she said.
As her belly grows bigger, Aggie has toned down on vigorous dancing.
"I toned it down at around the 6th-7th month. Right now I do a few stretches in the house. If you build your body for long it stays flexible for long. I think I am ok because I have done exercises for long. I love dancing in heels, it strengthens my body, I am yet to stop it," she said.
Her boyfriend, choreographer Oscar Mwalo, has been her strong support system, and is ready to accompany her to the delivery room.
"I must be in the labour ward...I have been going for all clinic appointments, I am even the one who reminds her. I will be there... not unless the doctors kick me out," Oscar shared.
Both Aggie and Oscar are professional choreographers but haven't planned to have their baby do the same.
"I have no idea, just the other day I was being taught how to tie diapers. I don't like the sight of poop but we will cross that line when we are there."
