Bahati and Yvette

Yvette Obura, Bahati’s baby mama, has been fighting depression since 2015 and for the last three weeks, this seems to have gotten even worse.

Obura has opened up revealing that it’s not only depression but anxiety and mental health.

She wrote;

Today I’m very grateful for a lot of things.
The last few days have been so tough on me, battling anxiety, mental health and depression at the same time(since 2015), this being the first time I’m talking about it. The whole world shattered right in my face, I prayed and asked God not to wake me up the next day (happened every day) 

Adding that;

people used to call me and I didn’t even have the strength to pick up calls. A few people realized I was so silent and took the time to check up on me. I appreciate y’all  I know how much you tried communicating but I couldn’t even talk.

Obura says that her mother and lovely daughter Mueni were the people that gave her strength even when she sobbed.

It was a rough time, it still is but I’m glad I’m not where I was 3 weeks ago.
Thank God for my mum who’ always made sure I’m kicking it every day, it broke me when I broke down and my baby was the one comforting me, wiping my tears 😭. I was so broken💔I had to pick myself up and asked God to give me strength. I’m not ashamed about my situation, at the end of the day IT’S OKAY NOT TO BE OKAY. And I know of so many people who gave up the fight but I’m still fighting.

This is the first time Obura has opened up about this. On the other hand, her baby daddy Bahati is making headlines with a reality show and another baby on the way.

A couple of days ago, he and wife Diana Marua jetted to Dubai for a vacay.
