“I would never have imagined getting this thick” — Bambam opens up on the travails of being a mother


Former Big Brother Naija housemate Bamike Adenibuyan, aka Bambam, discusses motherhood, particularly gaining weight.

In an interview with Chude, the reality star who married her fellow housemate, Teddy A, revealed this.

The mother of two described her experience, describing how much her pregnancy changed her and how she went from a size 8 to a size 16.

Many internet users began to mock her for gaining so much weight, but she refused to be moved because only she knew what she had been through.

According to Bambam, she was diagnosed with preeclampsia during her first pregnancy and had to have the baby delivered surgically.

This contributed to her postpartum depression, as did her overthinking about everything that could have gone wrong during the pregnancy.

She acknowledges her good fortune in marrying Teddy A, who was very supportive throughout her motherhood journey and was open to her transition adding more weight.

She seems to understand why she put her beautiful baby through so much, as she expresses her joy for her beautiful baby.
