Mike Edwards and Perri Shakes-Drayton are having a baby! The Big Brother Naija “Pepper Dem” ex housemate and his Olympian wife announced the good news on Sunday, May 3, 2020.
This will be the first child of the lovebirds and apparently prior to this, Perri was having doubts about her chances of being a mother. The couple have decided to give fans a sneak peek into their new life. They have created a YouTube channel and in their first vlog, the expectant mother revealed that due to her career, having a baby was put on hold.
She said “I never thought I could get pregnant, that was one thing and to find out I am pregnant I was like ‘yes!’ this is exciting, I can’t wait to tell my husband, my mum, my mum-in-law”
Unfortunately, the global pandemic initially affected the couple’s baby celebrations. Mike missed the first scan because he was quarantine in Nigeria and he even barely made it out in time for the second scan.
