Maria Chike, the former Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija) housemate, has welcomed her first child with Kelvin Anene, her boyfriend.
The reality TV star took to her Instagram page on Tuesday to announce the arrival of her child — a baby boy.
Maria revealed Leonardo AmaraNna Anene, her baby, was born on October 1.
The 31-year-old appreciated God for her child, adding that she has “found the light in me that I could not find all these years”.
“Leonardo AmaraNna Anene 01/10/2023. I just want to say Thank you, God. My heart is so full and grateful. I have found the light in me that I could not find all these years. Thank you for choosing us as your parents,” she wrote.

In June, the entrepreneur announced her pregnancy in a short documentary shared via her social media pages.
In the emotional footage, the reality TV star was seen flaunting her baby bump as she delivered a touching message to her unborn child.
Her relationship with Anene, at some point, was a subject of intense controversy.
In 2021, Cubana Chief Priest, the socialite, accused the reality TV star of snatching Anene from his sister — but she refuted the claim.
In May, Maria again maintained that she was not aware Anene was married when they started dating.
