“I would never have imagined getting this thick” Reality TV star, Bambam opens up on her motherhood journey

Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Bamike Adenibuyan better known as Bambam has opened up on her motherhood and how she dealt with Postpartum depression.

In an interview with Chude Jideonwo, Bambam disclosed that she never thought her body would become thicker and change so much. Luckily, her good husband never made her feel bad about it or criticized her body.

She mentioned that her second pregnancy was easier than the first. During her first pregnancy with her daughter, her skin colour changed from maroon to black, and she developed skin tags. Bambam confessed that these sudden changes in her body surprised her.

The entrepreneur added that when her daughter was born, she had fair skin and grey eyes, which led her to question the doctor. However, now her daughter looks different.

Bambam also said that she felt very sad after her first pregnancy and had a health issue called preeclampsia (high blood pressure (hypertension) disorder that can occur during pregnancy).

“I would never have imagined that my body would get this thick, no jokes. I look in front of the mirror and thank God for supportive husbands like mine. Imagine I had a man who wasn’t open to the transition phases I went through with each pregnancy.

My second pregnancy was even more merciful than the first. What! Zendaya! I went from Maroon to black, I had skin tags, and I had acne breakouts. Went from size 8 to 14/16. I was in shock. I went through postpartum depression. I was a mess. I did not understand. I transformed literally. But I mean look at the girl. Now you understand why she did what she had to do.

I had to ask the doctor, ‘Is that my baby?’ ‘How is she so white looking?’ She had grey eyes and now they’re brown. She looked so different. I had preeclampsia with her pregnancy, she had detached from my placenta by the time I arrived at the hospital. So the thought of losing her, if I hadn’t been diligent with my antenatal classes or taking my vitamins. We tried going to have her abroad but there were a lot of setbacks so we had to settle. And the hospital we got, thank God they were so diligent. Imagine they didn’t do my urinalysis test and the doctor didn’t call at the time that he did?”.

Bambam met her husband, Teddy A on Big Brother Naija Season 3 themed ‘Pepper Dem’. They tied the knot a year after leaving the show and are blessed with two children.
