Recall that barely two months ago, there were reports confirmed by her sisters that she was engaged and she has been spotting on her right finger in recent photos.

Rumors Of Linda Ikeji Getting Engaged Is True As Her Sisters Laura And Sandra Congratulate Her

In a post which she shared on her website, the 37-year-old revealed that she found out she was pregnant at the beginning of 2018 and she thought it was a dream at first.

Read her full post below

Did you guys read the title of this post? Should I write it again? Oh God, I can’t breath…lol. So let me say that again…I, Linda Ikeji, is going to be a mum. Somebody, please pinch me! Gosh, I can’t get over it.

2018 started with me finding out I was pregnant. When I missed my period and my friend and I did a home pregnancy test and it read positive, my friend began to cry with happiness but I was just there staring at the stick like, you’re not messing with me, are you? This is real and not a joke on me, right? I refused to believe it and asked my friend to drive me to a lab for another test. And there it was confirmed, I was pregnant. Me, Linda, I am going to have my own child. Please don’t wake me up from this lovely dream..lol

So many women have had children, so what’s the big deal, huh? Lol. Well, you see me, I’m somewhat of a different case. There’s something about me that I have never talked about publicly before and that’s the fact that I love children so much (I took that from my dad), and I am particularly obsessed with babies, and I mean that literally. Their pureness, innocence, little beautiful faces, tiny hands and soft cheeks make me just want to be around them.

I grew up in a compound with a lot of neighbours and believe it or not, as a teenager/young woman, I was the unofficial resident babysitter. I swear, ask my siblings. I literally carried all the new born babies born in that compound at a period of time until they grew up to a certain age. Their mums used to come drop the babies at our house whenever they were tired or wanted to go out, this was, of course, to the annoyance of my family…lol.

The first baby I carried was a boy named Makoba (wonder where he is now, this was about 20 years ago, he will be a big boy now). From the first day I carried him, I didn’t want to let him go…so every time I had free time, and his mum hadn’t brought him to me, I would walk two floors up, knock on his family’s door and ask them if they wanted me to take the child off them for a while. I was always happy when they said yes. After him other mums started dropping their kids with me.

Back then my sisters and I used to take turns to cook every day of the week. So whenever it was my turn to cook and I was babysitting and they insisted I go cook, I’d tell my sisters to either hold the baby for me so I could go cook or they go cook. They always chose the latter. Lol.

Then my siblings started having children and I started to feel more joy. These were no longer neighbours’ or friends’ children, these were my nephews and nieces. My family! And carrying them brought me even more joy. Like for example, whenever I see my sister Laura’s son, Ryan, I shriek with happiness. He’s the love of my life…lol. If I was planning to go out and I heard my beautiful nephews and niece were coming over to the house, most times, I change plans and just stay home with them. I’m a homebody, I like to stay home (that’s why I bought a big house…lol).

So now imagine that in a few months, I will look down at a baby, and it won’t be a neighbor’s child, a friend’s child, a sister’s child, but my own child, my own flesh and blood, carried in my womb. My own son. It’s surreal. I can’t get over it.

You guys think DJ Khaled is obsessed with his son, Asahd? Wait until this one gets here. He’s not even here yet and I already ordered a Bentley Mulsanne for us. I swear! Lol. Like, I can’t keep calm. Oh and please, nannies, stay away from me. I’ve got this covered! Thank you. Lol.

Sometimes when I’m lying down and I feel him moving around inside me (he’s so hyper already, constantly moving around…lol), I just get up and cradle my tummy and smile. Lol. I can’t wait for these months to go by so I can meet him. My own son!

Dear son, of every dream I have had, every achievement, every milestone, out of all my accomplishments and titles, all the money and worldly possession I have, nothing compares to you. You are my greatest blessing, my gift from heaven, my greatest dream realized. I love you more than life itself and I can’t wait to meet you and give you so many kisses. And of course, spoil you! You will hear ‘I love you’ loud and clear so many times, you will beg me to stop. I can’t wait to hold you in my arms. .
I know I’m going to be the best mum ever! I was born for this and I am finally ready! And now I want to do more, achieve more, so lil man will be proud of his mama.

Considering how much I love children, sometimes I wonder why I didn’t have them earlier. But like my dad said, miracles like this finally happen when God is ready to share you.

Anyway, as you all know, I’ve always shared every milestone, every good thing that’s happened to me over the years with you guys and I definitely wanted to also share this joy with you. I’ve been wanting to scream about this since I found out many months ago but my family and friends have been telling me to ‘calm down Linda, calm down’…lol. I’m now way into my second trimester, so I guess it’s okay to share my joy.

May God grant you what you desire the most and may all your dreams come true.

Oh, by the way, I’ll be having a baby shower in a few weeks and I will definitely love for some of you amazing, loyal female readers to come celebrate with me. Will communicate when the time comes.

Plenty kisses and God bless

Linda

Toto LG In Nasarawa To Refund 20% Workers Salary

Toto Local Government Council of Nasarawa State said on Saturday that it would refund the 20 per cent (about N1.8million)

Toto Local Government Council of Nasarawa State said on Saturday that it would refund the 20 per cent (about N1.8million) staff salaries deducted in April to curtail security challenges facing the area.

Nuhu Dauda, the Chairman, Interim Management Committee of the council, told newsmen in Lafia that the refund would be made to the affected workers in the interest of peace and development.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that on May 16, the state officials of Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), suspended the branch Chairman of NULGE in Toto, Iliya Haggai, for allegedly conniving with the council to deduct 20 per cent of members salaries.

Dauda said that the deduction of the staff salary was done with the consent of the NULGE officials of the area in order to help in protecting the lives and properties of residents as a result of communal crisis between Bassa and Egbira tribes.

“Salary is the entitlement of the staff; I cannot just touch their money without an agreement with the workers and this fund will be paid back as soon as we get fund from the State Government.

“We have applied to the state for more funds and as soon as that fund is released, we will refund the N1.8 million deducted and it will be paid back to the staff.

“Never at any point in time, have I ever connived with anybody to deduct workers salaries of my council staff as they all aware that the money was deducted to take care of the security situation.

“The staff of the council are all aware that I am well known for prompt payment of workers salary.

“What happened was that as a result of the crisis in Toto Local Government, we applied to the state for fund in order to curtail the security situation in our area as we cannot fold our hands and allow the area to be destroyed.

“While waiting for the fund from the state government, we have decided that as long as all of us are indigenes of Toto, let us find a way to source for fund in order to take care of the security situation in the area.

“We then approach the NULGE officials to inform them of our intention and they have agreed after we have sat down with them to explain ourselves to them and we have signed a written agreement to that effect.

“And the agreement was that if the 20 per cent salary is deducted and it will be paid back as soon as resources reach the coffer of the council, and I don’t know why they said that we have connived with NULGE officials to deduct the said fund.

“My message to the general public is that they should disregard such information that I have connived with the NULGE officials to deduct workers salary as the information is highly political and created by those who did not wish the council well,” the chairman said.

NAN recalls that a communal clash occurred between the Egbira and Bassa ethnic groups of Ugya, Toto local government area of the state, on April 24.

Several lives and properties were destroyed during skirmish.

Sanchez Has To ‘Improve’ Insists United Great Scholes

Wembley Specialist Sanchez Seeks Familiar FA Cup Liftoff At United

Manchester United great Paul Scholes has warned Alexis Sanchez he must improve following his lacklustre display in Saturday’s FA Cup final defeat by Chelsea, saying his performances “can’t get any worse”.

Former United midfielder Scholes singled out Chile international Sanchez for criticism after a match United lost 1-0 at Wembley, with Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard scoring the only goal of the game from the penalty spot.

United may have finished second in the Premier League table but that still left them a huge 19 points behind champions and local rivals Manchester City.

And Scholes, a key member of Alex Ferguson’s trophy-winning teams at Old Trafford, said the likes of former Arsenal favourite Sanchez had to raise their game if United were to close the gap to City next season.

“His performances, well they have to improve,” Scholes told BT Sport. “They can’t get any worse to be honest with you.

“I think the next few games of next season are vital to him, he needs to get fans believing again and believing they are going to get close to City. They need a big player.

“Paul Pogba does not win you games on his own. Hazard does. Alexis Sanchez doesn’t, he’s shown that since January, they thought he could, but what we’ve seen…

“They need two magical players. I think they’ve got really good players, they haven’t got a Hazard, (Cristiano) Ronaldo, (Lionel) Messi, and I know many teams haven’t, but the difference between the two was the quality in Hazard, we saw that in big games. United don’t have that.”

Man United ready to rock football with Salah and Neymar deals

Salah Manchester United are convinced they have a chance at landing Mo Salah according to the Express and Diario Gol,

Salah

Manchester United are convinced they have a chance at landing Mo Salah according to the Express and Diario Gol, who claim that Jose Mourinho believes the most impossible transfer of the summer could come off.

The United boss wants to add world class talent to his side, and thinks that Salah – a player who he failed to give a chance to during his time at Chelsea would make the perfect addition.

Of course, quite if this is just one of the worst rumours of the summer or credible remains to be seen, and both Salah and Klopp are happy with the player at Liverpool, and given he looks set to compete in the Champions League final with the club, the chances of him leaving for United and Mourinho seem slim indeed.

Neymar

The publication also note that United want to sign Neymar – something that seems far more reasonable should they have the money to get him from PSG considering the distaste the former Barcelona player has shown for Ligue 1 and the rumours coming from both PSG and Neymar that the player does want to move – and the chance to play in England and be the star man for Man United could well be a far more appealing prospect for Neymar should he want to win the Ballon d’Or than playing in a one team league for a side who fail to compete for the top position in the Champions League despite all their riches.

Rafael Benitez on Newcastle’s chances of signing Fernando Torres

Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez has this afternoon discussed the possibility of Fernando Torres arriving at the club this summer.

Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez has this afternoon discussed the possibility of Fernando Torres arriving at the club this summer.

Winding down

Torres, now 34, is set to become a free agent at the end of the season, with his current deal at boyhood club Atletico Madrid set to expire next month.

He was introduced as a late substitute as Atletico clinched the Europa League title on Thursday night, and is set to make his final appearance in a Rojiblancos jersey this evening when the capital giants welcome Eibar to the Wanda Metropolitano.

Suitors

Since confirmation of Torres’ impending departure from Madrid, the legendary Spanish hitman has been linked with moves to a whole host of clubs, with the MLS and Chinese Super League looking like the most likely destinations at this moment in time.

‘Appealing’

However, a return to England has also been touted, with Newcastle United  manager Rafael Benitez having been questioned on the possibility of reuniting with Torres (the pair spent time together at both Liverpool and Chelsea) during an interview with Marca earlier today:

‘I think it will be harder for him to come, not because we don’t want to.’

‘I don’t know what’s going on in his head, but maybe he is thinking about something else.’

‘It would be appealing, but I don’t think it would be easy.’

‘In Liverpool he was sensational. Then we went to Chelsea and, although he had a bad time when he arrived, he was essential for us in winning the Europa League.’

Courageous Civilians Foil Suicide Attack In Yobe Mosque

SAN FRANCISCO, May 20, (THEWILL) – The Nigerian Army said some courageous civilians on Sunday foiled a suicide bomb attack by a suspected female Boko Haram member on a mosque in Gashua, Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe.

Col. Onyema Nwachukwu, the Deputy Director Public Relations, Theatre Command Operation Lafiya Dole, disclosed this in a statement released on Sunday in Maiduguri.

“What would have otherwise been a devastating suicide bomb attack on a mosque in Gashua village in Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe state has been successfully foiled today by vigilant members of the community.

“A female Boko Haram suicide bomber had infiltrated the mosque, while members were about to commence a prayer session but was detected when struggling to detonate a suicide vest strapped to her body.

Tesla’s performance Model 3 delivers 3.5 second 0-60 for $78,000

Subscribe Tesla is almost ready to start shipping Model 3s equipped with an AWD dual-motor option, so CEO Elon Musk

Tesla is almost ready to start shipping Model 3s equipped with an AWD dual-motor option, so CEO Elon Musk announced specs and pricing for the new options on Twitter. The Performance trim Model 3 will sit at the top of the line, with 20-inch wheels, carbon fiber spoiler, black and white interior and specially-selected dual-motor setup available for $78,000 (adding AutoPilot costs extra). Musk said that its cost is “about” the same as BMW's M3 (a base model starts at $66,500), but it's supposedly quicker by 15 percent (3.5 seconds 0-60, 155 mile-per-hour top speed, 310 miles of range) and handles well enough to fulfill a promise it will “beat anything in its class on the track.”

If you're not looking for all of the upgrades, simply adding a second motor for all-wheel-drive (and extra reliability – Musk said either one can drive the car if the other breaks – is an option that costs an extra $5,000, just like it used to on the Model S. Compared to the standard sedan's 0-60 time of 5.1 – 5.6 seconds and 130 MPH top speed, this one can do it in 4.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 140 MPH.

These days, Tesla's other vehicles only offer dual-motor setups, which Musk explains also lets the company set up one for range and the other for performance, with the car constantly switching smoothly between them. If you've already purchased one of the company's electric vehicles, then you won't need to upgrade to enjoy another new feature: the ability to request service from your phone and have Tesla arrive to take care of it – no paperwork required.

Once the configurator is available – we haven't heard of anyone trying it out just yet – deliveries for dual-motor Model 3s will start in July. If you want that B/W interior with just a single source of power, it will be available too, just in a few months.

Gunmen Attack Kaduna Community, Abduct Housewives

SAN FRANCISCO, May 20, (THEWILL) – Three housewives have been forcefully abducted in Maganda village of Birnin-Gwari community, Kaduna State

SAN FRANCISCO, May 20, (THEWILL) – Three housewives have been forcefully abducted in Maganda village of Birnin-Gwari community, Kaduna State in the early hours of Saturday.

This occurs a week after the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Tukur Buratai, asked soldiers stationed in the area to flush out armed bandits that have been terrorising and killing people in the area,

According to PRNigeria, quoting a top member of the Birnin-Gwari Vanguards for Security and Good Governance who pleaded anonymity, the armed bandits arrived in the middle of the night to attack the Maganda village.

“Last night around 1.30 a.m., some armed bandits invaded Maganda community and started shooting sporadically. After a while they invaded the residence of Alhaji Adamu Nakwalla and abducted three wives. They later released one of the wives with a telephone number to contact them.

“Before the incident, they had sent a warning message to the people in the community that they would come soon.

“No life was lost but a young man in the community sustained bullet injury

“As at the time of the attack, there was neither security post nor security personnel in Maganda. In fact, we have no single police post in the area,” he said.
