‘Women Are More Than Baby-Making Machines’ – BBNaija’s Khafi Responds To Pregnancy Rumors
Former housemate Big Brother Naija housemate, Khafi Kareem has debunked pregnancy rumours.
The reality TV star is not pleased with womb watchers and has been getting a lot of comments about her pregnancy status.
All these started following unconfirmed reports that Khafi and Gedoni tied the knot secretly. Recall that the duo announced their engagement in December 2019 on boxing day.
An upset Khafi took to her Instagram page on Sunday, November 29, 2020, where she called out those spreading the rumours.
“The way I’m looking at the next person who drops a pregnancy comment on my post. Continue reading if you don’t want to get BLOCKED. (I’m not joking). I’ve ignored them for the longest now but according to the womb watchers on social media, I have been pregnant for over a YEAR. So let me get this off my heart,” she wrote.
The worst is that even when I’m proud of my ‘sucking in skills’ on a particular picture there is always SOMEONE who still comments something about pregnancy. This is a habit that HAS TO STOP.
“First of all, women are more than baby-making machines. A woman’s fertility or decision to start a family is for her to decide, not for you to comment on in every single picture… Must our stomachs always be the first thing you look at?? ? Secondly, I’m not just speaking up for myself but for women in general. You may mean well when making pregnancy remarks but it is not always a compliment,” she added.
“For women who have had miscarriages, have been trying unsuccessfully for a baby, or simply conscious about their weight it can be very distressing, triggering and also puts a lot of undue pressure on them. So unless someone has announced a pregnancy or told you then please be nice and DONT COMMENT OR CONGRATULATE them on one.
Trust me when the time is right I welcome pregnancy (twins please Lord!?anyone and starting a family at God’s time. But until I’ve said I’m expecting please stop with the pregnancy comments. I’ll have no patience for them anymore and any one who writes such comments will get BLOCKED.”
“To those who mean well, thank you so much, I do love you all? But to the amebos please be amebos elsewhere ?. It’s pressure enough being a woman, so let’s not add to it. Happy Sunday ? “
