It is now that the pregnancy rumours and speculations from April were confirmed.
Back on 11th of April, 2023, it was suspected that the singer was pregnant after she posted a teaser video for her new song with what looked like a baby bump.
However the rumours soon died down when no confirmation came through on the matter.
The singer is married Uzochikwa, a pastor at the WaterBrook Church and the Upper Room.
They got engaged in June 2022 and shortly after tied the knot in August 2022 in Rivers State, an event which was attended by many influential people and celebrities like Banky W and Waje.
Their family has now officially grown by one and Nigerians are here for it.
