Betty Kyallo: Dont call me baby mama

Media personality Betty Kyallo has candidly shared her perspective on being referred to as a “baby mama” and explained why she prefers not to be identified by that term, emphasizing her commitment to peaceful co-parenting.

Betty Kyallo and Dennis Okari, both prominent figures in the media industry, share a daughter named Ivanna.

In a recent interview with Oga Obinna, Betty expressed her discomfort with the term “baby mama” and highlighted her approach to raising their daughter.

“I have not been identified as anyone’s baby mama. It sounds very bad. I think I am a woman who has a baby with another guy. What does a good baby mama mean? What? I am a good mama. People who have seen us out there know we are very peaceful. He got the good woman for his child,” Betty stated.

The former couple, who dated for approximately four years, exchanged vows in a lavish wedding on October 2, 2015, at Marula Manor Gardens, Karen Street, Nairobi.

Unfortunately, their marriage faced challenges, leading to a separation just six months later. Despite this, Betty and Dennis have focused on co-parenting their daughter.

Betty emphasized the amicable nature of their co-parenting relationship, noting that Ivanna has a strong bond with her father.

In 2022, Betty Kyallo clarified that there is no animosity between her and Okari, highlighting their joint efforts in parenting.

“Working together in parenting has been good. Ivanna loves her father very much, and her father loves her as well,” Betty said in a previous interview.

During Ivanna’s sixth birthday in June 2020, the celebrity parents threw her a lavish party.

Tears of joy flowed freely as Okari got down on his knees to wish Ivanna a great year ahead and to declare his love for her.

“I love you. Love you. Love you so much. Happy birthday. May you enjoy many, many more. I pray for God’s blessings on your life. You are going to impact your generation.”

Okari finished off his tribute with a kiss on Ivanna’s left cheek.

This whole scenario left Betty Kyallo in tears.
