Q&A

During a Q&A session with the actor’s wife, Judy, Instagram fans delved into the couple’s marital life.

Even though the entire journey started off in an odd manner, the years are unregrettable for them.

Well, first came the baby then the long wait of almost 6 years before he could make up his mind about settling down. Thank God he did though with a proposal ndani ya gari…’Eeeh, babe tunaeza oana sasa?’ And here we are 12 years later.

More children?

Well, it has been 10 years and fans probed about baby number two. Judy responded:

It’s never a smooth road! It has its good and bad days.

Previously, the youthful production mogul revealed that their daughter’s birth caused them trauma.

The birth of our daughter traumatized us so much because we were not doing well then, and that is why we have not had a second child yet.

Reiterating the same, Judy Nyawira felt one was enough for them for the time being.

Never! That ship already sailed but it’s by choice. One is enough aki, for us. It was a mutual decision.

On what captured her interest in the scriptwriter, Judy blatantly admitted:

He is/was very good-looking and after 12 years of marriage, aki sina mahali pengine naeza enda.

Flashback

The popular Kenyan actor who has made a name for himself in the lucrative industry had in the past opened up on leading a strenuous life that rendered him unable to afford basic needs.

So bad was it that Nyawira was the one who cleared the bills, catered for food and his clothing.

I was so broke to the extent that I couldn’t afford to buy my underwear. It is my wife,who was buying me innerwear at the time. I may not have much (financially), but one thing I am thankful for, is the good wife God gave me.

In one of the photos, the legendary marathoner sports an all-black 70’s bell bottom trouser, complete with a Nike top which he harmonizes with a pink blazer.

So bold he was with his latest style that he, in a different shot, settled for a multi-coloured suit by Ermenegildo Zegna which he wore with Gucci shoes.

In another, he appears to give musician Stivo Simple Boy a run for his sense of fashion as he donned cream shorts by Fendi Men’s which he complemented with a two-button coat and a white shirt.

A spot check on how much the outfits cost established it would set one back huge bucks to attain Kipchoge’s distinctive appearances.
