The expectant mother revealed this in an interview she had with Genevieve Magazine about being a first time mum and protecting her pregnancy.
According to Osas Ajibade:
“This is my first child and i don’t want people’s opinion or judgement at this time. I want to take back that power from the public and enjoy my pregnancy with all it’s challenges. Unfortunately, i am aware that this is the industry i signed up for and people will always judge. It is a very sensitive period for us especially with my elder sister passing away from malaria when she was with child. My mother is really protective is on board with my keeping this pregnancy a secret.”
The Edo state born actress continued by saying:
“Loosing a child is not easy on any parent, so i understand why she is being protective. She even shared some Benin superstitions like putting a pin on my clothes to ward off evil and never telling anyone how far i am with my pregnancy and am following her instructions to the letter.
We know the culture we are in. Let’s be real, there are bad belle people out there, so to protect this blessing, we are going to be enjoying this moment privately.”
Osas and her Hubby Gbenro got married on July 5,2015 during USA’s independent day in New York. What words do you have for Osas about protecting her pregnancy?
