Nameless and Wahu, both musicians, have announced the birth of their daughter.
The news of their third child’s birth spread over social media on Tuesday; she was given the older sister’s name, Shiru.
Nameless, 46, called it a “wonderful day” for the family and posted a photo carousel to Instagram showing Wahu and Shiru in a hospital bed shortly after the baby’s birth.
On his blog, he wrote, “My first earthly connection with my third born Daughter, Shiru, named after my eldest sister @rosemarymutunkei according to Kikuyu tradition.” He also attached a video of the event. An African name will be chosen for her as well.
The “Coming Home” singer assured his audience that Wahu was doing OK after receiving their well wishes “…and eager to embark on this adventure with you.”
Wahu, now 42 years old, praised God in a video message beside her newborn child, saying that she had experienced “a multitude of emotions” during her pregnancy.
“When I found out I was carrying you, I fell in love. From the first time I felt your kicks and turns to the first time I heard your heartbeat in the doctor’s office, I have enjoyed every moment with you “the video’s captions were written by her.
“For the past nine months, I’ve worried, prayed, and experienced a wide range of emotions in anticipation of this moment: the moment when I get to hold you in my arms for the very first time.
This moment is tough to put into words… God, all I can say is thanks. The ‘Sweet Love’ composer said, “You have seen us through.”
Shiru joins the two older children of the powerful couple, Tumiso, 16, and Nyakio, 9.
Close pals, including Sauti Sol musician Bien-Aime Baraza and his partner Chiki Kuruka, attended Wahu’s baby shower earlier this month as a surprise.
