After months of keeping her pregnancy away from the limelight, Nairobi-based socialite Corazon Kwamboka has since become the poster girl for overcoming endometriosis to become pregnant.
A week after she revealed how the condition had dimmed her hopes of becoming pregnant, the voluptuous gym wear model on Monday continued to share with her 643K followers on Instagram details of her successful battle against Endo.
Ms Kwamboka — who is expecting her first child with fitness instructor Frank Kiarie (Frankie Just Gym It ) — bared her growing baby bump in a fabric bikini.
In doing so, the 27-year-old Instagram personality also showed off scars from a laparoscopic surgery she underwent.
“Incoming hot mama. Peep my endometriosis warrior scars on my belly button and the sides of my tummy. Those are the scars from which the laparoscopic surgery were done. #endowarrior?” she captioned the shot taken at “My Happy Place”.
In the comments section, Corazon’s soon-to-be baby daddy joked: “Nakitambi utawezana? ?”
To which, the mom-to-be responded: “Nitawezana father Abraham.”
The couple recently went public about their relationship, with Corazon insisting that she did not wreck Frankie’s marriage with his ex, YouTuber Maureen Waititu.
“People saying I ruined his family. That is not true,” said Corazon.
Frankie added: “I know a lot of people think that but it is totally false, I mean we met way after I broke up with Maureen, so that had nothing to do with it. It’s just that we found something that we never actually planned to fall into it.”
The soon-to-be parents said they met in July last year. “We were both going through tough times in our lives. We were both out of relationships, it was a sensitive time,” said Frankie.
Adding: “We just started talking, it was not as if we had planned to get into a relationship. She was entering the fitness world and I was in the fitness world. So I guess we had so much in common that things just catapulted into something else.”
On his breakup with the mother of his two children, Frankie explained: “Maureen and I had our differences, and it is not something we tried to fix once but throughout our relationship. We were not necessarily happy at that time. So we figured it was best for us to go our separate ways.”
Corazon also revealed that the pregnancy wasn’t planned.
“When I told him I was pregnant he was like okay, ‘what are we going to do?’ and we agreed. He did not react negatively, we were all mature about it. Bringing a child to the world ni responsibility ya watu wawili,” said Corazon, who is six months along.
“I wanted to know what he thinks and how he feels before I made a decision. It was not planned, it was a surprise. We had just found something beautiful and we did not want any backlash about it so we decided to keep it to ourselves for a while.”

If someone told me January last year that I’d be feeling you kick deep in my belly at the sound of your father’s voice, I’d most definitely think they were deranged! Endometriosis had crippled my dreams of birthing a child. But here we are. A pleasant and welcomed surprise. I can’t wait to meet you. Hold you and teach you EVERYTHING I know. To the baby’s father; I couldn’t have chosen a better person to do this with. I see the good in you and how you raise your own and I know my child will be loved ETERNALLY.
