Nollywood actress, Osas Ajibade who graces the cover of Genevieve magazine in an interview with the magazine talks about becoming a mother for the first time.
The mum to be is excited about her pregnancy and tells Genevieve magazine how she’s been following her mom’s superstitious beliefs.
According to her, “This is my first child and I do not want people’s opinions or judgement at this time. I want to take back that power from the public and enjoy my pregnancy with all its 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 older sister passing away from malaria when she was with child. My mum is really protective and she is on board with my keeping this pregnancy a secret.”
Speaking on what she does to protect her unborn child, the movie star revealed she’s following some Benin superstitions like putting a pin on her clothes.
“Losing a child is not easy on any parent so I understand why she is being protective. She even shared with me some Benin superstitions like putting a pin on my clothes to ward off evil and never telling anyone how far gone I am in my pregnancy and I 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 enjoy this moment privately.” She said
Osas and Gbenro Ajibade had their white wedding on July 4, 2015 during USA’s Independence Day in New York.
