Former Tahidi High actress Jackie has hinted that she was  not ready for her second pregnancy. 

Speaking on Youtube, the actress found out about the pregnancy when she was at eight months.

At the time, she was on contraceptives


"That day I wasn’t feeling well. I even thought I had contracted Covid-19. I had no appetite, and his cologne was irritating me. I was at a point where I never thought I could be pregnant again."

"Between my last period and the time of conception, when I was getting pregnant, I was on family planning — an injection."

"The doctor told me I was eight weeks pregnant, I froze. I did not know whether to laugh, cry or shout. This second pregnancy, I wasn’t ready because our relationship was just in the ‘honeymoon’ period."


She narrated what happened next;

"I went to the car and cried for 30 minutes. I then called Blessing (Madiba) over the phone and he was very excited,"

She had signed deals business deals that she thought would be terminated.

"I used to cry because I did not know if my contracts with different companies would be terminated. I felt like I was gonna lose all the sources of my income, it was hard."

The pregnancy is fathered by fellow actor Blessing Lugaho aka Madiba.

He proposed to her in April after they made their relationship public on February 14th.

So why did they decide to go public?

"We knew they would reveal on February 14. It was taking longer and preventing them from going on dates together because someone would see them. I wish them all the best and I want to tell them marriage works," she said in a past interview

Madiba said he first met the actress when she interviewed him on TV.  They later met on the set of drama series 'Zora'

"We were friends for a long, but we agreed to let the show Zora come to an end so that we don't confuse viewers. Nothing people say would affect me because I have known him for long," said Matubia
