It’s baby number two for the Raburus

TV journalist Willis Raburu and his partner Ivy Namu are expecting their second child.

The couple shared the news on social media with a beautiful picture of the two of them together. Ivy stands in front of Raburu who cradles her protruding belly with his hands.

“We did it again! One More to adore! #Bazu #Mazu #BabyBazu +1,” Willis wrote.

A similar post was shared by Ivy, which was followed by a flood of congratulatory comments from their fans.

The couple has in the past had pregnancy challenges, with Ivy previously explaining why she opted for a c-section delivery during the birth of their first child.

“I honestly did not want to go through labour just to end up needing an emergency CS. And my partner and I were looking from some degree of certainty and that is what an elective gave us,” Ivy said.

A concerned Instagram fan also asked Ivy if she regretted having the elective CS due to the pain that comes after and the whole recovery process.

“No regrets. Took me about 3 weeks to get off painkillers and maybe about 6 weeks to heal. Though I didn’t try working out until 6 months,” she said.

Ivy added that mental preparedness hastened her healing since she had already made the decision to undergo the procedure.

“It was only hard the first days in hospital but I was mentally prepared and made sure to walk a little every day which hastened my healing. Thank God. I don’t think any type of birth is easy,” she wrote.

The couple welcomed their firstborn son last year. Their relationship only became public after Willis parted ways with his first wife Marya Prude.

Marya and Willis separated early last year moments after the couple lost their unborn child in January 2020.

The couple had been having issues even during the early days of the pregnancy with Marya accusing the TV presenter of infidelity.

According to media reports, when Marya confronted Willis about his extramarital affair, he asked her to move out of their home in Langata.

Marya moved into a new house along Kiambu road in Thindigua area and the 10 over 10 show presenter then moved in with his father.
