Pierra Makena looks like she is leading a good life but weh! She has been through hell and back.

She is the mother of a very beautiful baby girl, Ricca, who is growing up fast. She is already walking and talking. Clearly, her mum is part of her life always because she is all she has.

Pierra in a post on Instagram opened up about her depression right before giving birth. She says she had no source of income and all her savings had run out.

Raising a baby is expensive. Remember when Ted Josiah did a whole video asking the government to reduce the tax on diapers and milk. It is damn expensive.

I always imagined giving birth and having the father of my unborn child holding my hand.

Pierra gives credit to her family because she went through the worst time but her family and close friends held her down.

It hurt as bad as it did because in her mind, she had always pictured having her baby daddy holding her hand through her pregnancy journey but he is nowhere to be seen. She remembers crying while singing Mercy Masika’s song, Mwema and asking God to be the father of her baby girl.

On this date 2016….. a day before i gave birth to my little princess…i was going through the hardest time of my life..yet i went through it with a smile. I did not know where to start..what my child will eat..where i will take her..i did not have enough resources..i did not have a job and my savings had run out… my family and very close friends were great support otherwise i would have died of depression. I always imagined giving birth and having the father of my unborn child holding my hand and helping even if it is with a diaper…but i was alone…with many questions and fear…i honestly was alittle below rock bottom.. i remember i sat in my car and i played and replayed MWEMA by @mercymasikamuguro i cried so many times to God and prayed so many different prayers coz i didn’t know what would be good for me anymore… i remember looking up and telling God please..please Be the father to my unborn child

Pierra loved walking and one time while trying to manage the stress, she was walking at The Hub with one family member and her water broke then. Probably what was running through her mind was, “Yes, a blessing is here but how do I take care of it?”

Pierra is a celebrated female DJ and she gets gigs aplenty. God came through for her and made sure she won’t have a tough time as a mother.

 i don’t ever want to be like this again…. and in my car in the house i just replayed the song like 100 times…the following day i went to The hub…. just to walk around and yes all the time either my sister my mom my bros or my friend would be around coz they knew i needed the support though i didnt ask….i walked so much….and guess what!!!! My water broke😳😳😳😳😵😵😝😝😝……..#ownmystory #BEYOU

#thanks to anyone who stood up for me and shared my tears. Lets enjoy the smiles…

Pierra has never really spoken about her baby daddy despite all the rumors. From guys saying it was DJ Mo because Ricca and Wambui (DJ Mo and Size 8 baby) look alike to the baby daddy being Steve Mbogo.
