Popular Nigerian blogger Linda Ikeji, who recently revealed the identity of the father of her child, has said she was abandoned by him during pregnancy.
She narrated the experience through a post on her Instagram page, stating that her supposed baby daddy, Sholaye Jeremi, neglected her during the third month of the pregnancy.
According to her, she is yet to know his reasons for doing so.
“We went from talking about the pregnancy and being okay with it; he even suggested I go to Dubai for my pre-natals as he didn’t trust doctors in Nigeria, to literally not talking to each other anymore,” the blogger wrote.
“Around when I was about three months pregnant, he did come to see my parents and actually became very cool with my dad. They were literally exchanging Whatsapp messages every day.
“He later agreed to a traditional wedding which he didn’t follow through and then he switched. He began to treat me with so much hate and aggression that I and my family had to cut him off completely.”
The famous blogger said at this point, she had to encourage herself through her friends, family, and her unborn child, who she referred to as “my soldier”.
Linda said during this time of her baby father’s sudden change, her son, while in the womb, was gentle with her through the nine months to the point of delivery.
“To be honest if anybody had told me when we met three years ago, considering how deeply we cared for each other that I would fall pregnant two years later and he would completely turn his back on me for most part of my pregnancy, I never would have believed it but that’s what happened. I had to draw strength from myself, my family and close friends,” she added.
“And Jayce…oh my son Jayce, he was my biggest strength. It was almost as if he knew his dad was acting up so he came through for his mum. He was gentle with me when I was carrying him. I had an extremely easy pregnancy. I pushed him out under 3 mins and was in the labour room for less than 30 minutes. And then my snapback was amazing. Three weeks later, it was almost as if I’d never been pregnant. Jayce was my soldier when his dad turned his back.”
