Ex-Beauty queen Anna Ebiere Banner has revealed the real reason why she kept her pregnancy and became a baby-mama for high-life music star and “golibe” crooner, Flavour.
The one-time Most Beautiful girl in Nigeria disclosed in a highly revealing interview that she didn’t know she was pregnant until she was 4 weeks gone.
I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant – Anna Banner
According to Anna, Flavour denied dating another of his baby mama’s, Sandra Okagbue or even getting her pregnant when confronted.
Responding to reports that she had wanted to become a baby mama for singer Flavour, she said;
“I never decided to become a baby mama, I just fell in love. I fell in love and got pregnant unexpectedly for the man I loved. I had never gotten pregnant before and I was scared of abortion.
“I decided to keep my baby no matter what. I never tried to hold a man down or force marriage on anyone with my pregnancy. You know in life, the hardest decisions always turn out beautiful.
“I don’t regret keeping my baby one bit. She is my greatest achievement in life so far. I fall in love with her every second of the day.
Defending her decision to keep the baby, Anna said;
“I never knew flavour was with another woman while we were dating. We started dating way before ‘Golibe’ was composed. He never mentioned nor admitted he had any relationship ties with anyone even after rumour had it that he was dating someone else and she was even pregnant for him. I believed him.
“I confronted him again when I heard she had put to bed and it seemed true. He accepted after much talk but unfortunately I was already pregnant. I never knew I was pregnant until I was one month gone. What was I supposed to do? Take out my precious child? Hell no. I believe God sent her to me for a reason.
“So you see, it was never my intention to break anybody’s relationship or come in between two lovers. I just never knew.
She even had a word or two for those criticising her for being a baby mama;
“For those of you out there judging and persecuting me for something you know nothing about, let me ask, are you better than I am? Is it okay by God for you to Judge me when he has forgiven me all my sins?
“I made an adult decision at a young age and I am so proud of myself for keeping my baby. People always say I am competing or fighting with someone all because of a man. Really? Fighting and competing? That’s too much energy. Seeking for a man’s attention is never and has never been my thing! I’m not done seeking for God and my daughter’s attention.
“People always refer to me as “husband snatcher” but please, that is not the case. Many of us have been victims of love and I am sure we all know that when a woman is deeply in love, she believes everything her man tells her.
“I am not a husband snatcher, I was just naive of a lot of things and every day I ask God to give me the wisdom to see well and make the right choices.
