Ex- reality star and social media influencer, Tokunbo Idowu, better known as Tboss, has said she’ll go to any length to protect her daughter because the baby is her topmost priority.
The first-time mother who recently had an emotional outburst after Internet trolls made unpleasant remarks about her baby’s photos, said she is very sensitive though she tries to ignore them at times.
In an interview with Sunday Scoop, Tboss said, “A mother’s love for her child is unconditional. She can go to any length to keep her baby safe at all times. They say you don’t know how high you can jump until you are faced with a situation that requires you to jump. I am a mother and my child is my utmost priority.
“I think the reason people would not only troll me, but anyone at all, is because they lack love. I mean if you grew up in a love-filled environment and were taught the importance of self-love, I cannot imagine that you would act otherwise.
“You cannot give what you don’t have. They must be jobless and hurt people for them to going around looking for who to drag down. Many of them are jealous people who hate one because they assume that one has got life all figured out and just want to ruffle one up not knowing that one is simply taking one day at a time.
“And in my case, they know I can sometimes be super sensitive. Trust me, I do look the other way sometimes but I do believe that at some point, one has to give it back to them hot.”
The model also maintained that she wouldn’t shy away from breastfeeding her child for fear of her breasts losing their firmness.
“I heard that’s a myth and I’ve honestly never worried about that. I did have other fears, concerns and questions about breastfeeding but that my breasts would sag? It never even crossed my mind. And even if they were to sag, my baby is totally worth it.
“I really wasn’t prepared to love someone so fiercely. When I held my daughter in my arms for the very first time, I knew what love really meant. I felt such a rush of emotions that you simply have to experience because there are no words to explain them.
“It’s a new chapter of my life and I have never disillusioned myself that things would stay the way that they were. Nothing stays the same; that’s just the natural order of things. And that’s fine. As long as I am healthy and my daughter is fine, then what’s there to complain about?
“Pre-pregnancy body was amazing but it’s gone and there’s nothing wrong with that. I housed a whole human being for almost a year, so it’s okay if it takes a while to bounce back but if I need to hasten the process, I would simply visit the gym or under the knife; or both. Why not?”
On the identity of her baby’s father, Tboss declined to comment and also refuted reports that it is Uti Nwachukwu. She added, “I heard the rumours about me and Uti and we both think they’re hilarious. It is not even worth debunking although at some point, it got to me and I have categorically stated that it is untrue. However, some people still think otherwise. Uti is a good but simply platonic friend and that’s my truth.”
