Since popular blogger, Linda Ikeji, announced her pregnancy, she has never ceased to be a topic of debate.
Very many people have congratulated her while some dismissed the story of her pregnancy as untrue.
In some quarters, she is believed to be wearing a baby bump, insinuating that she could not carry a baby in her womb.
This is apart from other related issues raised.
Apparently not ready to allow the baby bump issue to go unaddressed, Linda took to her Instagram page on Wednesday, baring it all for everyone to see.
In different ways, she showed her bulging tummy to keep the mouths of those in doubt shut.
“Like I could get away with that in Nigeria? And some folks actually believe it. If I couldn’t have a child, I would proudly adopt. Proudly. I love children so much but fortunately God blessed me with a womb to carry my own child. I was just hiding the baby bump until I got into my second trimester before letting you amazing people know,” she said.
She spoke on how excited she is and how her pregnancy has been so easy so far.
She also spoke on the issue of celibacy which she had preached over the years.
Her words: “I preached it a lot of times but I have NEVER said do not have sex before marriage. Here’s what I have always said to young girls and I maintain it. Never ever give your body to a man for money. You’re worth so much more than that. You’re beautiful beyond measure and there’s absolutely nothing a man can give you that you can’t give yourself if you apply yourself, believe in yourself and work hard.”
She advised young women to start young, pursue their dreams and never give up even when it gets hard.
“I’ve always also said and I maintain it – do not sleep around because your body is too precious and deserves respect. I’ve said sex should happen when you find yourself in a loving relationship with someone you love who loves you back. I was 100% celibate until I was ready to share my life with someone and I met the man of my dreams,” she said.
She however refused to divulge the identity of the “Man of my dream.”
“Unfortunately, I can’t share him with the internet, lol,” she said.
