Award-winning journalist and former Citizen tv news anchor Jacque Maribe has broken her silence on her baby daddy Erick Omondi.
Speaking during an interview with True Love, the TV queen divulged that, the fanny man presented a “ladies man image”, rather than having a child.
She added that they were best of friends for five years before they started dating.
“Eric and I were very good friends for about five years before we made the decision to cross that line and start dating,” she stated in the interview.
Maribe remembered how excited she was on learning about her pregnancy with the comedian, at a time when Omondi was not ready for the idea.
“By the time we realized that we were expecting, I was very excited. I really wanted a baby and had gone through all the motions of trying to get one. I was at a space where this was what I wanted and was genuinely actively working towards it. But I think for Eric and his career, he wasn’t very sure about the path he should take. Like do we do this and have a baby together? Not speaking ill of him, but at that time he had this ‘ladies man’ image, there was no space for a child in that mix,” said Ms. Maribe.
“People had a field day guessing, saying he was Dennis’ child, some said it was some politician’s kid until one of Eric’s friends let it out that we had been dating. So when he was put on the spot, he jumped ship,” she added.
The hot seat host remembers how they parted ways, and later settled on bringing up the child on her own, taking him as hers.
“A very amicable split. I decided that this was my child, that I was going to bring him up by myself, and I was enough,” Maribe is quoted saying by True Love Magazine.
