Her best friend & godmother to her son Funmi Alaiyemola, who was present through out the delivery process also took to her Instagram to show how excited she is.
She wrote: “Part 1: On Thursday July 13th at 6:58am i witnessed a beautiful baby being born, and I have to say it was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. I wish I could explain it in words but it’s not something that can be explained! I was overwhelmed with joy seeing baby Kairo for the first time. I decided to sing happy birthday to him and it was definitely a precious moment worth waiting for; since I felt like I had been pregnant too since october 😀😂 as I had been there from IVF injections days, to egg retrival day, waiting for 4days after that to know if the eggs fertilized, to transfer of embryo day, then waiting 10days after to know if it had implanted in the uterus. Those were the longest 10days of our life. It felt like a 100 days. On the 10th day, Oct 26 2016, before that call came in at 11:56am my God….So much anxiety. How would i handle my sister if the outcome were negative after coming this far in the process. We got that call that said “You are pregnant” We screamed and cried for hours. Phewww… The emotions were insane. So i’m really pregnant she says…. for almost 2 months she would ask me sis am I pregnant? Im like yeahhhh there’s a baby in there. The 1st ultrasound was just too emotional for us.We left the hospital crying like 2 idiots on the street of New York with a picture of the scan in hands. Everything became more real after the maternity tour of the labour room and hospital, baby shopping, hosting a baby shower and being at the lamazze class. I’m now a pro at these things 😃. The cravings Oooh my God. Sis i want puff puff. Ive never made puff puff before but i had to.I got it wrong every time but i would say Oooh sorry its not round, its too hard, it ‘s the same thing Just eat it like that.Thank you for not saying my puff puff was bad 😃. Lol the Tanzanian foods I watched numerous youtube videos to cook. Sis i want that fish u made that day. Ermmm what day? But it was all worth it. So well worth it and i would do it over and over again for you …..#part 1″
Part 2:- A few days before her birthday, i was the only one besides her doctor who knew the gender of the baby and I decided I wasn't going to reveal it to her or her family untill her birthday(Dec 31st). They begged me but I didn't budge. Nope I wasn't telling anyone 😝.I decided to turn her birthday brunch into a baby gender reveal party. How exciting for us starting the new year with a baby on board and now at 41weeks and 2days our baby arrived. Oh baby, we prayed for you, we dreamed of you, we imagined you and now we welcome you. Congratulations to the newest mummy @Ladivamillen 😍❤️. Gosh you are now a mum? Somebody pinch me.The next few years are going to be the best years of your life and as a new mum, may you be filled with so much joy and happiness.I trust you will be a fantastic mum Millen. God heard and he came through for us. God heard when you said 13 endometriosis surgeries were enough 🙏🏾……I share in your joy and i'm so happy to have been a part of this incredible journey with you from begining to end. To everyone who has followed her journey, supported her, prayed for her and those suffering from infertility and waiting on God's blessings, May you all receive your blessings soon in Jesus name. I love you Kairo and you will forever be my baby 😍😘 ……Ok bye.
