The BBNaija 2018 contestant who appreciated her husband, Teddy A for being supportive during the transition phases, said she ignored online trolls who mocked her for gaining weight.

In her words; “I would never have imagined my body would get this thick but thank God for supportive husbands like mine. Imagine having a husband who was not open to the transition phases I went through with each pregnancy.

“My second pregnancy was even more merciful than the first. I went from Maroon to black, from size 8 to 14/16. I had skin tags and acne breakouts.

“I was in shock. I went through postpartum depression. I was a mess. I didn’t understand. I literally transformed.

“I had to ask the doctor, why is my baby so white looking?’ She had grey eyes and now they are brown. She looked so different. I had preeclampsia with her pregnancy, by the time I arrived at the hospital she had detached from my placenta.

“My pregnancy phase was a miracle. Postpartum depression was because I kept playing all the what if in my head.”
