Nigerian entrepreneur and aphrodisiacs seller, Akinola Oluwatomiwa Balqees, popularly known as Miwa has opened up on some of the challenges she encountered during her pregnancy.
Miwa, the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Miwa Signature Palace, recently welcomed her first child with millionaire businessman, Kolaq Alagbo and father of three.
According to the new mum, she never knew Kolaq had a wife and she only knew when she became pregnant.
During a question and answer session on Instagram, Miwa disclosed that she was expecting twins but one of them vanished all of a sudden and it was a big challenge for her.
The Instagram user wrote;
“Please how did you deal with first trimester heartburn and morning sickness. I’m so sick.”
Miwa replied saying:
“First trimester was a piece of cake… the only challenge I had was my second baby vanished, I was expecting TWINS.”
