Why I Kept My Pregnancy Secret – Tboss
Former housemate in the Big Brother Naija, Tboss has broken silence on her pregnancy after many months of speculations.
The reality show star in a post on her Instagram account stated that she had to keep her pregnancy away from social media because she was scared of the negativity of some users.
In her statement, she claimed that she did not keep the news away from social media because she was ashamed, but did so because she was keeping herself from negativity on social media and keep her sanity.
TBoss wrote, “What is it about our Generation that’s always so eager to post up our private lives on Social Media?”
“We get Good news- SM, not so good news- SM, Someone offends us, someone owes us money, breakups, new home, new car, new shoes, fake designer shoes, borrowed stuff- There’s Absolutely No Mystery anymore. You wanna know about a person? Just look up their SM pages & you’d get a pretty close picture of whom you’re dealing with.”
“I agree I’m not exactly social media compliant but I’m also guilty of sometimes putting more than I ought to have out there thereby subjecting myself to being misinterpreted, misquoted, misunderstood and highly misjudged and that’s why it was extremely difficult for me to keep my pregnancy all to myself.”
“I mean it was without a doubt the best news I have ever had and God knows I wanted to shout it out so as to be heard to the ends of the earth but I had to. Not because I was ashamed or nothing of the sort. Hey, I’m a grown woman let’s be real.”
“I was afraid. I was afraid of exposing my best news to the negativity of little and sad minded people of which unfortunately happen to be a lot. I wanted to enjoy this journey, savor every little moment, understand what was happening to me, my body, keep my sanity for my good and the good of my unborn child.”
“Pregnancy is indeed a roller coaster ride and as Ecstatic as I was, it really hit me. My friends all knew- if you didn’t oh well- maybe that’s your cue. I went shopping and out a lot and took lots of photos with my beautiful fans – Selfies only of course and never felt the need to cover up or hide anything and why should I?”
“Do you know the struggle a lot of women go through to get what I have? A free gift from God and you think at 35 I ought to feel some type of way because someone has an unsolicited opinion about me? Ha Ha Ha…Silence is NOT denial, my silence was just that: Silence- until I was ready to speak about it.”
