Mike Edwards, a former Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) housemate, and Perri Shakes Drayton, his wife, have announced that they are expecting their first child together.


The couple took to their different social media accounts to break the good news with their numerous fans on Sunday.

In his post, the reality TV star said they finally decided to make the pregnancy public after keeping it a secret for a long time.

“Great news we can finally share our secret with you… We’re having a baby!!! Do you think it’s a girl or boy?,” he wrote on Instagram.

On her part, Drayton described the pregnancy as a blessing, adding that she can’t wait to become a mother of her man’s baby.

“Public announcement, been keeping a secret and I’m pleased to announce we’re having a baby. This is such a beautiful blessing. Me and Mike are excited and can’t wait to meet our offspring,” she wrote while flaunting her baby bump. 


The news of the pregnancy comes about the same time when the couple also launched ‘Mike and Perri‘, their joint YouTube channel.

Edwards, who is the CEO of Aireyys, a lifestyle brand centered around fashion and cigars, tied the knot with the British track and field athlete in 2018.

He had last year recounted his struggles to represent Nigeria at the 2018 Commonwealth games before rising to spotlight after emerging runner-up of the 2019 edition of the reality show.
