Nigerian news blogger, writer, entrepreneur and former model, Linda Ekeji who recently got engaged has shared the story of how she found out about her pregnancy and how she reacted to the good news.
The blogger revealed that she was so excited to be pregnant. She also revealed that she has always loved babies. According to her, she was a resident babysitter when she was a teenager. Linda stated that her love for babies was a gift she inherited from her father who also loves babies.
“It started with me finding out I was pregnant. When I missed my period and my friend and I did a home pregnancy test and it read positive, my friend began to cry with happiness but I was just there staring at the stick like, you’re not messing with me, are you? This is real and not a joke on me, right? I refused to believe it and asked my friend to drive me to a lab for another test. And there it was confirmed, I was pregnant. Me, Linda, I am going to have my own child. Please don’t wake me up from this lovely dream..lol So many women have had children, so what’s the big deal, huh? Lol. Well, you see me, I’m somewhat of a different case.
” There’s something about me that I have never talked about publicly before and that’s the fact that I love children so much (I took that from my dad), and I am particularly obsessed with babies, and I mean that literally. Their pureness, innocence, little beautiful faces, tiny hands and soft cheeks make me just want to be around them,” she said.
Best known for her blog, Linda is the highest paid blogger in Nigeria, born on 19 September, 1980 in Nkwerre, Imo state.
