Former Citizen TV news anchor Janet Mbugua has finally addressed rumours that her marriages went to the dogs and is no longer with Eddie Ndichu.
Speaking on Upclose and Personal TV show, with Betty Kyalo, Mbugua denied that she has been having troubles at home and that her marriage has crampled. She started by urging Kenyans to take their time before starting a family and only to do it when completely sure.
“I always tell those who keep on saying: ‘Oh my God, I can’t wait to start a family…’ I say two things: ‘Take your time, and make sure that you are ready; because you could be good at being in love, but you do not really need to be married’. Mbugua stated.
The 35-year old also spoke about balancing her work with family saying:
“Trying to balance family, work and expectations is really hard…I love my family, I love where I am.
“And, I know, the moment you say it is not easy, I can predict what the blog posts would say… But, it is fine, they would talk about it” said the mother of two.
It has been two years now since Janet Mbugua resigned at Citizen TV. Recently, social media has been buzzing after she official announced her comeback which will be on NTV.
Mbugua will be hosting a new show called “Here and Now”, which will be centered on the youth and will tackle social, economic and political issues they are facing.
“I am so jittery and that shows that I care about the product. A mentor once told me, the day you stop being nervous you should be worried,” she said.
Mbugua has now dropped a snippet of the show and we want you to be the judge. The first episode includes her brother and former radio presenter Anita Nderu as they talk about depression and mental health.
“A difficult conversation with my older brother Kevin, plus a look in to a subject affecting many young people today and more. @hereandnowke premiers at 8 o’clock tonight on @ntvkenya. Use #HereAndNowKE,” she said on social media.
Janet Mbugua and Eddie Ndichu’s son Huru is now officially three years old and he got a present not many would ever think of giving their son. Janet Mbugua took social media to share that they adopted him a baby elephant on his first birthday.
“Some of you have asked me what we got #babyhuru as a birthday gift? We adopted an elephant for him named ambo, from the @dswt in nairobi. I hope one day he understands the importance of #elephantconservation.” she said.
Things however are a bit different this time round and even Janet confessed that Huru has changed a lot.
“Huru has totally changed, especially after we explained to him about it. I noticed that there is a difference and he constantly wanted to be with me. I tried and explained to him so that he does not get too shocked. But I was told that the transition would be a bit tricky, and that in the first few months there may be a little bit of jealousy. So what I should do is include him in washing the baby and even changing diapers,” said Janet Mbugua in her Vlog.
Veteran journalist Julie Gichuru has been in the business for a long time now and knows the ups and downs that come with the job. The mum of one is expecting number two soon and is doing everything possible not be caught off guard.
Mbugua announced her pregnancy on TV after she had taken a long break from social media to focus on her first trimester.
Now that she’s done with her long trip in Paris, France to celebrate their wedding anniversary, Janet shared that she’s getting ready to deliver.
Opening up on what she’s doing to face her finali trimester she said:
I’ve upped my #supplements intake…and I feel so much better!
Second trimester cravings are in full effect but I’m trying hard to maintain a decent diet.
I’m already planning my delivery to-do list; getting in to the right frame of mind around birth the second time around, double checking my insurance, selecting the right hospital with good care. Speaking of ?? it’s appalling how many stories of quack doctors are still out there. We need to be fast in spreading word about this. Let’s keep that conversation open.
