Wahu, 42-year-old and her husband 46 years old have been waiting for baby number three for over six years.

“From when my second-born daughter Nyakio was about three years, I wanted another child, but God made me wait for six years before He finally remembered me.

I was not assisted, and I did not go for any artificial method, but God answered my prayers. When I got pregnant, I was not looking for a baby since I had reached a place where I was already trying to make peace and accept that I was a mum of two,” she said.

The Sweet Love hitmaker who already had two girls 16-year-old daughter, Tumiso, and 9-year-old Nyakio then gave up on baby number three and focused on enjoying her 40s.

When she got pregnant the talented musician was very anxious and avoided the media until her third trimester.

“Most people wanted to talk about the pregnancy but I just needed to get to the other side first and give birth. I was concerned about my health and that is one of the reasons I did not want to do interviews as well. I am human and I was concerned that something goes wrong. I had my concerns since I had read about different things, they say about getting a child at 40,” she said during an interview with Mpasho.
