According to Tiwa Savage, she did not bond immediately with her son.
The Mavins Records first lady welcomed her first child – a boy, on July 22, 2015.
In her interview with Genevieve Magazine, she revealed the hardship she went during labour.
- “I’m going to be as candid as I can be and Genevieve is the only press I’ve ever told. They say you bond instantly with your baby but I didn’t have that instant connection. I was in a 20 hour labour and just when I was about to push him out, his heart rate dropped, so there was a lot of panic in the room and we were all in tears. Then, when he eventually came out, everyone screamed “congratulations” and they had to put him on my chest to bond. Instead, when they did, I said “He is beautiful, but can I sleep for just one hour?” she revealed during the interview.
“Thereafter, I was so overwhelmed, that for a week after delivery, I would cry every day. And I don’t know why that happened. The midwives thought I was suffering from depression but I guess a lot of first-time mums have felt that way. I think it is the overwhelming feeling of being responsible for another human being. Now, life is no longer a joke. I cannot do just anything I want. Yet, on the other hand, I am very protective of him. Being a mother has made me like a lioness, and I’m ready to bite anyone’s head off over him”she further said.
Tiwa Savage and her husband Tee Billz have refused to show the face of their son to the public. When asked about it Tiwa Savage her husband/manager is behind the decision.
“Well that’s his dad’s decision. Every mother wants everyone to see the picture of her baby. I want everyone to see how cute he is but I understand my husband’s perspective too. He is the head of the house so I have to respect his wishes. Eventually we will reveal his face but for now he wants only close family and friends to have the special moment to bond and not share it with the world yet.”
When asked about Tee Billz’s other kids, Tiwa Savage declined to talk about it.
