Popular gospel musician Kambua announces pregnancy
This will be the couple's third child.
Award-winning Gospel musician Kambua Mathu has announced she is expecting. The singer announced the news on social media with beautifully shot pictures of her baby bump.
“He restores us. He heals us. He makes all things beautiful,” she wrote.
Adding, “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy…joy cometh.”
The news comes almost a year since the couple lost their second child Malachi which she shared alongside the happy announcement.
“A little over a year ago I held my precious baby boy in my arms as his little body grew cold. I was engulfed in a thick, thick darkness. I got to know heartbreak like I never knew possible. But God. He sat with me in my darkness. And slowly he began to lift me. He reminded me also that years ago I received a doctor’s report that said I could never have children. He reminded me that as the world mocked me He was busy working for my good and His glory.”
Despite her grief, Kambua also expressed hope for those going through the same struggle.
“Right now a woman somewhere has just learned that her body is not “competent” enough to carry children. Or that her baby won’t survive her pregnancy. A woman has just had a miscarriage… maybe for the fifth time. A woman somewhere has just birthed a perfect, sleeping baby. Oh, I know the pain. I know it. But I also know that God heals- he gives the strength and courage to move forward. And He restores.”
The couple is expecting their third child.
