Former beauty queen and Bongo actress Wema Sepetu’s long struggle with conception has reached a crucial point after doctors gave her a clean bill of health to have children.
The former Miss Tanzania 2006, who has been open about her struggles to conceive, told Global Publishers that doctors have successfully solved her infertility issue and she is ready to have children as early as January next year.
Wema was suffering from Polycystic Ovarian Disease (PCOD)- a hormonal disorder whose symptoms are enlarged ovaries containing multiple small cysts that prevent the ovaries from fertilizing. She underwent a successful procedure in India last year.
“Mwanzo nilisema nikifika umri wa miaka 30 kama sijapata mtoto, itanilazimu kufunga kizazi. Lakini madaktari wameniambia ninaweza kupata ujauzito kuanzia Januari mwaka ujao,” she said.
The actress, who has also undergone a remarkable transformation after losing weight, says she dreams of having a boy as her firstborn.
“Napenda mtoto wangu wa kwanza awe wa kiume. Wa kwanza akiwa wa kiume ataweza kuwaongoza wenzake watakaofuata. Lakini kama Mungu hakupenda hilo hata wa kike si mbaya.”
Wema Sepetu also disclosed that there’s a man she has identified as a potential baby daddy. She, however, promised to reveal his identity when the time is right.
“Yupo. Ila watu wavumilie tu kwa sasa, sitaweza kumuweka wazi, siku zijazo na mambo yakiwa mazuri kila mtu atamfahamu waziwazi,” she is quoted.
