It has been months of us waiting to hear the side of Jacque Maribe's story since all hell broke loose in her life.

She has not done any interview but she started her own YouTube channel where she gave us a sneak peak of what life has been for her since slain Monica Kimani's death.

Her first interview after the long wait was with True Love Magazine with Carole Mandi.

Jacque Maribe has for the first time revealed that she suffered two miscarriages and at some point, she was sure that she would never become a mother.


"I had almost gotten a baby before but I suffered a miscarriage. It was tough at the time because it was so new to me. then we tried again, suffered a second miscarriage and didn’t know what was going on." She opened up

Adding that the doctor did more tests and found out she had a thing called 'Septum'

"So our doctor said we have to probe further then they discovered I have this thing they called a septum and mine had a wall between and we realized that the problem was the baby would either be planted on one side or the other and as they grow the wall doesn’t move and now it causes a miscarriage.

We were lucky we found out earlier so I was told I had to undergo surgery to get rid of it and give ourselves a period of time and wait and now the baby would have at least enough space to carry all the way to maybe 30 something weeks and don’t have to get to 40. I remember I panicked and I said I'm not gonna do this. it took a while, I can’t remember how many years it was and every day i used to pray and ask God 'what is too hard for you?' I don’t have to have this surgery if you want you can make that thing elastic by whatever miracle but just make it elastic, create space.” Jacque explained

Then her miracle baby came.

 "In 2013 I remember I  got sick and I was in South Africa at the time, where I had gone on assignment and was so sick and my colleague asked me 'are you pregnant?' And I was like, stop it, I can’t be."

She came back and went straight to the doctor who came with good news.


"The doctor comes in and says “congratulations”. I hadn’t done the surgery yet. My son is a miracle baby. I remember I said the first three people I would tell were my mother, wasn’t even sure about being the baby daddy, to be honest at the time and my sister who lived in Dubai. After the baby came, I did the surgery (septum) and was told you can go now have your six children if you want."

The former TV anchor revealed that she wants to have one more child. speaking about her son, she said,

"His name Zahari means god has remembered and literally God remembered me. It’s a personal name and we have a very personal relationship. He makes me happy."
