She is a TV star no doubt, and has been entertaining Kenyans for a loong time now, over a decade I believe, since the inception of the local sitcom Papa Shirandula.
Her real name is Jacky Vike but is popularly known as Awinja, the latter being the character Kenyans have come to fall in love with thanks to her village like tendencies (complete with a hanging petticoat).
Jackie has surprised her fans with the news that she is going to be a mother soon.
And what better way to announce to her fans about the pregnancy than post pictures of the same?
Jacky hopped on the social media to let her fans know that she is expecting her first child. That means another celebrity baby is on the way. And it’s been pouring babies in cellebville lately, hasn’t it?
Makes me wonder when the ‘latest’ episodes of Papa Shirandula were filmed because the last time I watched, ‘Awinja’ was nowhere near pregnant.
The photos show the pregnancy could be in her second trimester, and yes, she tagged a man in the post if you’re wondering – a Mr Joseph Musembi and your guess is as good as mine, this could be the soon-to-be dad.
“Just the two of us, thank you lord for this gift, i cant be grateful enough!! ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ #motherhoodjourneywithjackyvike”
Below is a sample of how her fans reacted:
