The Real Househelps of Kawangware actress Njeri Gachomba, popularly known as Njambi, is a talented lass.
The reality star has for once opened up about her life, and it hasn’t been easy.
Njambi, a single mother, has revealed that after giving birth, she was depressed, frustrated, heartbroken and couldn’t imagine raising her daughter on her own.
“I took this photo (above) last year a time like this, I was so depressed, frustrated, broken, terrified, thin and giving up. I remember it took me almost 6months just to accept the fact that it was over…. It’s not easy raising a child without a dad, I was so worried that I wouldn’t make me, I was so bitter with life and I thought I would never be happy again,” she wrote in part.
“One year later, am proud of myself and Tamara, I’ll admit co-parenting is so hard but am getting the hand of it. Am so happy sometimes I wonder why I kept holding on, why I was afraid of being alone. Am raising an amazing, intelligent, beautiful daughter and I thank God every day for her, I thank God for always blessing, providing for and protecting us. I found my own happiness, I learnt to love myself and I learnt how to put myself first, heck I got my groove back. I thank God for my best friends for not leaving my side and for making sure I didn’t end up in a mental institution, my mum for supporting me, my brother for understanding me,for loving me and believing in me again am so glad I found you.”
Njambi has confessed that she’s still hurt and she is not falling in love anytime soon.
“I still have trust issues, self-esteem issues, am afraid of falling in love, am afraid of being hurt but those are just stepping stones……. so today am crushing on myself it has been a long long emotional journey. Am an amazing mother and a phenomenal woman. Am a super mom.”
Other celebrity single mothers include Kanze Dena, Jacque Maribe, Nicah the Queen, and Pierra Makena just to mention but a few.
