In the emotional footage, the reality TV star was seen flaunting her baby bump as she delivered a touching message to her unborn child.
“I have longed for you at an early age as I can ever remember. You came when I didn’t know I needed it the most. Since we’ve been sharing this magical experience, you’ve made me so alive from the first day I heard your heartbeat,” she said.
“I may be birthing you but God is giving you life. And I pray you walk in his path all of your life. I promise to guard you with everything in me. I promise my love is eternal and divine. I pray the good Lord let you perfect for him. I pray you be God’s best creature ever created.
“I pray you have a heart like your daddy’s heart. If I were to ask you anything my child, please know that I will not be perfect so I ask for forgiveness and patience already once I do my very best as a mother.
“I know the journey we have ahead will be an amazing one despite the ups and downs life may bring.
“But please know my little one that you were brought to this world with a boundless love that your father and I share and that has created a new life and that is you. Through life in the best way we can.
Maria is in a relationship with Kelvin Anene.
The union, however, has been a subject of intense controversy.
In 2021, Cubana Chief Priest, the socialite, accused the reality TV star of snatching Anene from his sister.
But the 31-year-old refuted the claim.
In May, Maria again maintained that she was not aware Anene was married when they started dating.
“I actually wasn’t aware whether or not he was married. When we first started dating. I’m going to stand by it and that’s the gospel truth. I didn’t destroy any marriage. I have never and I would never,” she had said.
