Victoria Rubadiri is known to keep her personal life on the low key…But a day like Mother’s day, she couldn’t help it but pour out her heart in a love letter to her lovely daughter.
Rubadiri says she gave birth to Neema at just 18 and yes, she was so scared and not ready.
In the letter written in May 2019, the Citizen TV news anchor says although her daughter admires her, it sometimes turns to what she has referred to as occasional side eye, now that she is all grown up.
Here is the heartfelt letter alongside a photo of Victoria’s daughter who was then a week old.
You see this picture? You were a week old, I was 18 and scared out of my wits. You were perfection, I was a wreck. I fought for a long time with embracing the identity of being a mother because I felt I wasn’t ready. Truth is, you are never going to be ready! I learned that with time as you grew and became a different human being at every stage. I grew with you, made my mistakes but pushed forward. You healed me with your unconditional love. Though that admiration in your eyes has turned into occasional side eye 👀 now that you are a teenager. 😂We’ve made it this far Dudu and you’ve turned out pretty amazing. Babu, Mama and Aunty have a lot to do with that. On this #MothersDay I thank God for you because you truly are a gift from Him. I pray you thrive in this life. I pray you are a light in your generation. I pray you are a beacon of hope in this world. -Love Mommy😘
