Nigeria’s phenomenal blogger, Linda Ikeji has shown off her baby boy, Baby J, hours after she announced the birth in a hospital in Atlanta Georgia, United States.
The blogger announced the birth of the baby on Monday morning on her Instagram handle,@officiallindaikeji. Hours after, she posted her photograph, kissing the adorable baby boy on the head with an equally adorable message : “My son”.
The elated new mother shared the news of her delivery through her Instagram page on Monday with a post delivery picture.
She wrote, “Oh dear Lord, I am a mum. Baby J is here. He was born today 17th September. This is so surreal.
“Thank you guys so much for the love through this journey and thanks for all the well wishes. Love you guys!,” she wrote.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ikeji’s pregnancy generated a lot of interest in the past few months leading to the delivery.
The pregnancy was first announced by her sister , Laura Ikeji in May. Her pregnancy was then already six months old. She then confirmed it herself.
Two months earlier, Laura also broke the news of Linda’s engagement to her one-time-ex-boyfriend, an Itsekiri guy, as she later revealed.
Several controversies dogged the pregnancy.
Fans accused her of doing what she advised them not to do, by being celibate till marriage.
She responded in a lengthy post on her Instagram page.
“I owe you and will always speak to help you in any way I can, because I want you to shine and be a better version of yourselves.
“Here’s what I have always said to young girls and I maintain it. Never ever give your body to a man for money. You’re worth more than that…
“I’ve always said sex should only happen when you find yourself in relationship with someone you love and who loves you back.
“I was 100% celibate until I was ready to share life with someone and I met the man of my dreams,”she wrote.
She also wrote that she preached celibacy a lot of times but never told young girls not to have sex before marriage.
NAN reports that Ikeji maintained a high anticipation for the baby, regularly posting pictures of her pre-natal care and plans for the child fondly called ‘Baby J’. In one post, she said she was going to pamper the child.
