Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko is the newest grandpa in town.
The politician’s first daughter, Agnes Saumu Mbuvi, delivered a bouncing baby girl at a Nairobi hospital last week Friday.
The news was announced by Benson Gatu, the father of the baby but who has since broken up with Saumu.
Gatu, an aspiring politician, penned a sweet message for his baby girl saying:
“To my baby girl,
Before you even entered the world, you were anticipated, loved, cherished, and wanted. Now that I can hold you in my arms, those feelings have multiplied tenfold. I look at you with complete wonder, melt with each coo you make, and fall deeper in love when you rest your tiny head on my hands. You are actually ours – our perfect gift from God — a precious life whom He has trusted to our care.
May the Almighty give us the wisdom to bring you up to be a God fearing daughter with favour before both God and people.”
Senator Sonko also confirmed the arrival of the newest member of the Sonko family during an interview on Citizen TV.
“Saumu I have given you everything, education, a good life, I also love your daughter, my granddaughter. What you have undergone is a normal part of life,” said an emotional Sonko.
He also spoke about Saumu’s relationship with Gatu saying that although Mr Gatu messed up his daughter, he is ready to forgive him and accept him back into his family.
