“Well, first came the baby then the long wait of almost 6 years before he could make up his mind about settling down. Thank God he did though with a proposal ndani ya gari’ eeeh, babe tunaeza oana sasa? and here we are 12 years later.”

She added that it’s never a smooth road! it has its good and bad days,”


In a previous interview, Abel said he never dated in college until the last semester of his final year, and the girl he dated became his wife soon after he impregnated her while she was still in college.
The birth of our daughter traumatized us so much because we were not doing well then, and that is why we have not had a second child yet,” he said.

Several fans asked to know when the couple is getting baby number two but Judy said,

Never! that ship already sailed but it’s by choice. one is enough aki, for us.
It was a mutual decision.”

On what drew her to Abel she said;

“He is/was very good looking and after 12 years of marriage aki sina mahali pengine naeza enda.”

Abel alias Freddie, has also in the past opened up about a difficult period in his life, when he was so broke to the extent he could not afford to buy himself basic things such as clothes.

The 34-year-old said all that while, it was his wife, Judy Nyawira, who was settling the bills, including food, rent and clothing.

I was so broke to the extent that I couldn’t afford to buy my underwear. It is my wife, who was buying me innerwear at the time,” he said

I may not have much [financially], but one thing I am thankful for is the good wife God gave me,” said Mutua.
