Bamike Olawunmi-Adenibuyan, better known as Bambam, from Big Brother Naija, has revealed that she suffered from postpartum depression after the birth of her first child.

Bambam revealed this in a recent interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, while recounting her experiences with being pregnant for the first and second time and gaining weight. In her own words:

“Motherhood did a number on me. I would never have imagined that my body was gonna get this thick, I look in front of the mirror sometimes, thank God for supportive husbands like mine because imagine I had a man whose spec was a spec and wasn’t open to the transition phases that I went through with each pregnancy.

“My second pregnancy was even more merciful than the first, Zendaya, I transformed, like I went from maroon to black, I had skin tags I had acne breakout, like my body changed, I was in shock, I went through postpartum depression, I was a mess, I didn’t understand I couldn’t fit into my clothes, so I transformed literally.”

Bambam also revealed that she had several complications during her pregnancy and that she thought her baby would not survive, but the hospital was diligent.

In March 2022, Bambam and her husband Teddy A announced the birth of their second child, Akorede Maya, via Instagram.

The reality stars earlier revealed they were expecting their second child in February 2022.

The couple welcomed Zendeya their first child in March 2020.
