Former TV presenter Kambua is yet to overcome the loss of her son.

The award-winning artist through her Insta Stories posted about how heartbreaking it is for a parent to carry his/her baby's coffin.

"The smallest coffins are the heaviest. One day I will tell you about that. Not today, someday."



"If you know someone who has had a miscarriage, a stillbirth, infant loss call them, text them. Let them know they are loved. Let them know their baby mattered." Kambua advised.

Kambua lost her son Malachi on February 15th 2021 meaning that on February 11, 2022, Kambua's late son Malachi would have turned 1.

To celebrate his birthday Kambua and her husband cut a cake in memory of him.

Sharing the cake on her socials at the time Kambua shared,

"Happy 1st birthday in heaven my precious Malachi 🤍👼🏾. We’d have loved to hold you close today, but I know Jesus and the angels have smothered you with so much love and that gives us peace.

You are forever loved ♾🤍@artcaffekenya thank you for making this day so special for my family. This White Chocolate Rose Cake hit the right spot in our mouths and hearts! 😋 #artcafferosyaffair."

Kambua also got herself a customized ring in remembrance of her son.

She wanted something she can wear all the time.

"One of the things I really wanted to do after my baby boy got his angel wings, was to get some memorial jewelry. I wanted something precious, but also functional. Something I could always wear and remember that Malachi was here."

Kambua also went on to share why she chose the specific gemstone she chose on the ring she made in memory of Malachi.

"I am in love. Simply and truly. @thevavanistore you captured my heart and the memory of a little boy that I will forever carry in my heart. I chose a morganite as the center stone because it is a rare gemstone, that signifies healing.

We surrounded the morganite with diamonds (conflict free & ethical), because diamonds are forever ✨

Signifying my everlasting love. The stones elegantly sit on a rose gold band. 🤍I'm a little emotional as I write this out."


"I will cherish this forever. Malachi was here and he remains so deeply loved. Thank you, Jesus, for giving me the great honor of being an angel mom."
