Betty Kyallo and Dennis Okari decided to celebrate their daughter Ivanna ´s 6th birthday on Sunday, June 21 in a star-studded private event.
Ivanna was born on June 22 but in order to rope in everyone, they went for the weekend which saw the day feature as a complete episode on Betty Kyallo Lately.
However, on reminiscing the chain of events that took place during the little girl´s 5th birthday, the ex-TV girl only had memories of Ivanna in ICU.
Betty broke down on camera expressing:
I remember my baby was so sick, so sick! She was in ICU for a month and a half. I was so losing my baby. The things that my baby just went through, it was just horrible. And every day since then I´m always just praying for her to be okay, hoping it will never happen again.
Unfortunately, the 31-year old had lost hope of ever seeing Ivanna coming back home.
I woke up one day last year and she couldn´t walk. The next day she can´t talk, she can´t eat, she can´t sit…it just went downhill for so long before I even knew what was wrong. I always looked at her bed whenever I came home from the hospital and I always wondered ´will she ever come home to her bed?´
Either way, the former K24 journalist thanked God that Ivanna made it through, labeling her ´a miracle baby´.
So baby Ivanna I know you´re going to watch this video one day in your life, just know I love you so much.
Okari goes down on his knees for Ivanna
NTV prime time news anchor, Dennis Okari who is Ivanna´s dad, was also present at the event and for his baby girl, he went down on his knees, as he articulated his blessings for the 6-year old.
I´ll be the first man to go on my knees for you, before that boy comes. You are the most intelligent, the most smartest, the most beautiful, precious daughter anyone would have on this world.I pray for God´s blessings on your life and may you impact many more generations.
This ended with a kiss on his daughter´s cheek and this saw Betty break down to tears as the emotional moment went down.
Have a look.
