Known to always shout it on the rooftop that she has gone celibate, many of her ‘self-made’ don’t-sleep-with-a-man followers are still in awe.
For 37-year-old celebrity blogger, Linda Ikeji, 2018 seems to be a turnaround year for her.
On March 28, 2018 when she announced her engagement to an unknown lucky man, the Internet went into a frenzy.
None saw it coming because Linda had kept talking about being celibate and not ready to marry ‘just any man’.
But in January, the landlady of her mansion in Banana Island found out she was pregnant.
In her words, she narrated: “2018 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”
Then, announcing that it’s a boy, Linda posted again, “You guys think DJ Khaled is obsessed with his son, Asahd? Wait until this one gets here. He’s not even here yet and I already ordered a Bentley Mulsanne for us. I swear! Lol. Like, I can’t keep calm. Oh and please, nannies, stay away from me. I’ve got this covered! Thank you. Lol.
“So now imagine that in a few months, I will look down at a baby, and it won’t be a neighbor’s child, a friend’s child, a sister’s child, but my own child, my own flesh and blood, carried in my womb. My own son. It’s surreal. I can’t get over it.
Sometimes when I’m lying down and I feel him moving around inside me (he’s so hyper already, constantly moving around…lol), I just get up and cradle my tummy and smile. Lol. I can’t wait for these months to go by so I can meet him. My own son!
Dear son, of every dream I have had, every achievement, every milestone, out of all my accomplishments and titles, all the money and worldly possession I have, nothing compares to you. You are my greatest blessing, my gift from heaven, my greatest dream realized. I love you more than life itself and I can’t wait to meet you and give you so many kisses. And of course, spoil you! You will hear ‘I love you’ loud and clear so many times, you will beg me to stop. I can’t wait to hold you in my arms.”
Though she hasn’t disclosed who the baby daddy is, its obvious Linda Ikeji is through with celibacy.
Congrats to her!
