Following the backlash on social media over her double standards, popular blogger, Linda Ikeji is out to defend herself.
Linda Ikeji who ordinarily should be one of the happiest women on earth right now over the news of expecting her patter of tiny feet has been dragged on social media over getting pregnant out of wedluck.
The blogger isn’t finding getting pregnant out of wedluck easy following trolls over her getting pregnant while preaching celibacy before marriage.
Taking to one of her social media handles, the media mogul defended herself over her decision to get pregnant which she revealed was because she felt it was the right time considering her age.
"And I've lived by it. But then I turned 36 and I knew there was nothing else I wanted more than to be a mum & wife and celibacy wasn't going to get me that! I even did a video talking about how much I wanted these two things and God has finally answered my prayers. Beyond blessed," she wrote.
She also went on to say she preached celibacy to young girls because she felt it was only right for them to live that way until they meet the right person.
"I preached celibacy to young girls because I feel that's the right way to live until you meet someone very special that you love & who loves you and wants to be in a committed relationship with you. Passing body around and having multiple partners is not the way and I stand by it," she concluded in a now deleted post.
The news of Linda’s pregnancy comes just weeks after it was announced that she was engaged, guess the engagement was a tactics to later announce the pregnancy.
Her pregnancy news was announced by her younger sister, Laura Ikeji
"See who's gonna be a mummy. Congrats Lin @officiallindaikeji" Laura Ikeji on her her post where Linda Ikeji was seen rocking a baby bump.
However, Linda Ikeji has posted about her pregnancy on her blog, writing:
"My greatest dream has been realized. I'm going to be a mum. There's nothing that has happened in my life that compares to this. I'm beyond happy. I love children so much and literally obsessed with babies and to think in a few months, I'll look down at a baby and he will be mine. My own son.
No accomplishment, no title, no milestone, no achievement, no money or worldly possession compares to this. This is my greatest blessing. My gift from heaven.
Dear God, thank you so much for this gift! Thank you!
I wrote a piece on my blog about finding out I was pregnant early this year and all the emotions I've felt since then. You can go read it if you want.
Thank you so much for all your well wishes. I appreciate your love and kindness.
May God visit everyone for whatever their hearts desires are. May all your prayers be answered. God bless"
Congratulations to Linda Ikeji
