Ugandan content creator and comedian Anne Kansiime has revealed why she hides her pregnancies.
The comedian kept her pregnancy secret for nine months, only to surprise her fans and followers on social media after giving birth to her son.
The mother of two revealed this while narrating her pregnancy journey on the Bump Love episode on YouTube.
“Being a mum saved my life after my parents died. I announced my pregnancy after I had welcomed my baby. The day I left the hospital was the first time I posted about being pregnant,” she said.
Kansiime said that being a celebrity, she knew how it would have meant to be in public in such a scenario, especially after she parted ways with her ex-husband Gerald Ojok, and started dating fellow celebrity Skylanta.
“I have been looking for the perfect way to break it to you my dearest Ninjas that soon my Kantu Skylanta and I shall have a little Ninja added on to our family and I thought and thought, what better way!!” she wrote.
“Opinions had cost me so much before. I kept it a secret because I didn’t want the devil to hear,” she added.
Apart from her nosey online-in-laws, Kansiime was also secretly grieving the sad news of losing her past pregnancies.
“I lost so many pregnancies for speaking about them. Subconsciously I felt that was why I was losing my babies,” she narrated.
She said that she lost so many pregnancies while she was in college and sought after previous miscarriages and abortions.
“I started taking stock of why I was having miscarriages and finding the reasons. I started praying for the times I aborted on campus and praying for the men I have ever been involved with,” she concluded.
