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.

Vera Sidika who is 8 months pregnant, went on to say that her pregnancy has been very smooth despite people wishing her otherwise. She added that she feels the same way she felt before the pregnancy and the only thing that has changed is her belly getting bigger and there is a little human kicking non-stop.

 

“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.
