Petite On-Air Personality and comedienne Helen Paul is still basking in the euphoria of motherhood for the second time. She gave birth to a baby boy on Monday November 24, 2014. ENCOMIUM Weekly spoke with her on the joys of motherhood…
I feel great. I am already climbing the ladder to join the greatest mothers (laughs). My first child now has a partner. It is definitely the joy of every woman to see such. I am really happy.
How will you describe the experience this time around?
It was much easier for me. It was not my first time, so I am used to the system already. Above all, I thank God for making it possible and itch-free. I give all the glory to Him.
Can you compare the experience to the first time?
It is like someone boarding a plane for the first time; the first experience will always be different from subsequent ones. Everything was new to me at the first time, but this time around, I am already used to the whole routine. That is why I said it was less stressful. The first time could make you nervous, but this second one is much fun.
Which sex did you have in mind before you had your first scan?
Honestly, I didn’t have any sex in mind. I just wanted to have a fine baby, irrespective of sex. Whether boy or girl, all na baby and special gift from God.
Should we expect more?
You need to ask my husband. He is the head of the home and breadwinner, so, he calls the shots. If he says we should have 20 more kids, I don’t have a choice.
What is the greatest thing about being a mother?
It would be tough for me to say a particular thing because everything about motherhood is great. Seeing my kids grow bigger every day is great.
What names are you giving him?
He has many names. In fact, I don’t think this magazine can accomodate all the names.
Now that they are two, how will you juggle your role as a mother, wife and career woman?
It is still the same routine. I try to strike a balance between my role as a wife and as an entertainer. To crown it all, God has blessed me with the best partner in the world. Nobody can understand me more than he does.
