Christabel Egbenya recalls scary labour room experience
Nollywood actress Christabel Egbenya has opened up on life as a first time mother, and her scary labour room experience.
In a recent interview, the happily married mother of one said, “When it comes to labour room (laughs). If you were there, you will know not believe it’s the same Christabel talking with you now. It was not funny at all. The painful experience is not something I can explain. The only thing I can remember I was saying was ‘God’, that was the only thing I shouted throughout and when I was asked to push, I said one funny thing which I don’t want to say now. I was just like, “God, I’ll make it, I’ll make it.” I just pushed twice and my baby came out but the pain wasn’t funny.”
The Edo State born movie star also stated what has changed about her since she had her baby and lessons of motherhood.
She said: “A whole lot has changed since I had my baby. Now, I really know what motherhood is all about. Motherhood taught me a lot of things. It changed me, my life, the way I reason, the way I see things has automatically changed. Bringing another soul is something else. It has taught me a whole lot of lessons. Christabel Egbenya has changed. Ever since I had my baby, my mentality, my reasoning has changed. My world, the ‘baby girl’ life and everything else, changed for now, I think till after having all my kids. You know you have to give your children time, you have to check up on them, you have to take care of them. Even if you have nannies, you won’t be comfortable. You’d still want to show them that mother’s love even if you have a lot of people taking care of them. That bond is something else, you just don’t know how to explain it.”
Christabel Egbenya also revealed the number of kids, she would you love to have.
“If you’ve watched me so far, you’d know that I dont don’t joke with kids. I love children so much.”
” So, I’ve always prayed to have my kids and now, God has blessed me immediately with a bouncing baby girl and I’ve always wanted to have a baby girl first because I know that baby girls will always help me.”
“My girl will help me to take care of her brothers and God blessed me immediately with her.”
“By the grace of God, I wish to have two more which will make them three but according to my husband, he wants us to have three more but the experience! Either way, by the grace of God.”
“Three more but two more for me but my husband has been begging me to have three more. By the grace of God, we will.”
