Socialite Vera Sidika on Monday took to her social media to share with her fans that she has chosen to give birth to her baby in Kenya rather than in the United States of America(USA). She said that despite having a valid US Visa, she has chosen to stay in Kenya because this is where her family and loved ones are.

“I almost traveled to give birth in the USA. Since my 5 years Visa is valid. But this Covid-19 pandemic isn’t fun. Then again, we couldn’t handle the idea of being away from family and friends during my pregnancy for 4-6 months,” she wrote.

She went on to add that while pregnant, one needs all the love, and affection from friends and family on a regular basis. Traveling to a foreign country where everyone is super busy, working two or more jobs can be difficult for them to even have time for you and you will just end up alone.

“I made the right decision and I have enjoyed my entire pregnancy journey. Nothing beats home,” Said Vera.

“I can jump, run, I do everything as a normal non-pregnant person. I’m actually loving it. I can’t believe my bump will go away soon. All in all, God is God,” she wrote.

5 Tips for meeting your girlfriend’s parents

Yes, we know meeting her parents for the first time can be nerve-wracking. But never fear: We’ll warm you up with tips to make that first visit exemplary.

Published

on

For most couples, meeting the parents is among the serious steps in a relationship. It shows that you are not only dating but also crossing the threshold into long-term expectations. If you are planning something long-term with her, then her parents will pretty much become a part of your life too.

Luckily, in this modern age, the future of your relationship does not lie with them. However, you can’t deny that their approval of you will make life much easier.

Below are 5 tips to help you score that one-time goal that will help you build a healthy relationship with your girlfriend’s parents.

5. Do your homework

Don’t go into battle unprepared. Do some research about your girl’s parents before stepping into their home. Try as much as possible to get deep into who they really are. Your girlfriend is very handy in this. Get specific: What do they do for a living? What are their politics? What are their core values? Are they religious? If you don’t get enough from your girlfriend, ask her to tell you stories about growing up with them. This will let you in on important things such as parenting styles: if they were strict, then prepare to walk on eggshells during conversations and if they were free-spirited, then you can relax a little but not too much to run your mouth aimlessly.

4. Dress to impress

First impressions last longer. You don’t want yours to be tarnished because of your favorite pair of ragged jeans. It’s the first thing her parents will notice about you and no matter how polite you act, you won’t be able to distract them from an egregious dressing. Knowing the meeting point will also help you in choosing the right outfit. Get your girlfriend to approve of your dressing first before leaving the house.

3. Keep the conversation going

This is where your reconnaissance work comes in handy! Every word coming from your mouth will be used to evaluate your character. Unless your girlfriend warned you that her parents hate their jobs, ask them about work. On the other hand, if you are intimate with a girl whose parents hold more traditional values, you might have to stay clear of the sex topic and everything remotely related to it.

 

2. Getting in their good graces

Compliments are a great deal to help you get into good books- well as long as you don’t overdo them. You can compliment how good their house looks or how tasty her mother’s meal is. However, do not go overboard with compliments such as telling her mother, “You look like her younger sister!”

If they are having you for a sleepover and they put you in separate rooms, respect the house rules and obey their wishes. Show them that you actually care for their daughter by helping to get her coat, filling her glass, or carrying around things. However, avoid PDA! this will put you on their radar negatively.

1. Actions speak louder than words

Body language speaks volumes, especially during first impressions. Smile, have an open, inviting posture (avoid crossing your legs and arms), and maintain a lot of eye contact.

You could bring a gift with you to lighten any potential tension but seek your girlfriend’s approval first while choosing the gift.
