“I went through h*ll” Pierra Makena opens up on struggles as a single first time mum
Nothing beats being a mum but the sad reality is that, life as mum is tough, demanding and can leave you drained especially the first 3 years. So imagine being a single mum without a supportive baby daddy to chip into daily expenses!
Well, this is a life DJ Pierra Makena understands so well after her alleged baby daddy, Jomo Gacega dumped her while still pregnant. According to an interview done by Pierra Makena a few years ago; baby daddy had already moved on by the time she discovered she was pregnant. Wow. Speaking about this she said;
He had moved on and dating by the time I discovered that I was pregnant and didn’t want to disrupt what they had just because I was pregnant…he started dating while we were not together so it’s all good.
Struggles of a single mum
However during a new interview on Chat Spot, Pierra Makena opened up about life as a single mum; and judging from what she says, life hasn’t been as easy as she thought. Speaking about her experience, Makena said;
I went through hell trying to figure out how to be a single mum how the bills will be paid. There was so much going on and I couldn’t work. I was going through a lot of pressure and trauma. I also could feel I had become heavy and I could not do the things I used to do.
Apart from having to deal with the fact that she was now a single mum; Pierra went on to address the body shaming comments she received after gaining 45kgs after pregnancy.
The popular DJ says she moved from 50kgs to 94kgs – which is common with a few new mums; but in her case, she had to face harsh trolls from fans criticizing her body. She went on to add;
I used to be 50 and shot to 94 kgs, One day I woke up and found a whole newspaper column written about how I had added weight That is why I addressed it. It was hard but I have gone back to where I used to be. Those people who body shame people are cowards.”
