Khafi Kareem, a 2019 housemate of the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality TV show, is pregnant.
The reality star broke the news on Wednesday in what appeared to be a response to pre-existing comments by fans about her “protruded” belly.
“According to some of you here, I have been pregnant for the past two years. I’m glad to say your predictions have finally come true! I couldn’t be happier,” Khafi wrote in the caption of a photo showing her heavily pregnant self.
The reality TV star, 31, had walked down the aisle with Gedoni Ekpata, a fellow ex-BBNaija housemate, in December 2020.
Last November, Khafi had denied pregnancy rumours while also taking a hit at critics observing her belly for signs of protrusion.
“The way I’m looking at the next person who drops a pregnancy comment on my post. I’ve ignored them for the longest but, according to the womb watchers on social media, I have been pregnant for over a year,” she had said.
“So let me get this off my heart. Some people have flat stomachs naturally and some people have big stomachs naturally. The latter is me. And when I’m on my period it is even bigger. I don’t owe anyone a flat stomach but still.
“I try to suck in my belly in every picture. Sometimes I do it better than others. The worst is, even when I’m proud of my ‘sucking in skills’ on a picture, there is always someone who still comments something about pregnancy.
“This is a habit that has to stop. First, women are more than baby-making machines. A woman’s fertility or decision to start a family is for her to decide. Must our stomachs always be the first thing you look at?”
