Jahna Sebastian has stories to tell about her pregnancy with Nicole Dean(dad is Swizz Beatz), and we’re all ears. The singer and producer recently revealed some of her deepest thoughts about motherhood, which are quite entertaining. Check out Jahna’s tale!
“When I gave birth to Nicole, I learned the I skill of breastfeeding and making beats at the same time interrupted by changing nappies. I didn’t have to read any books on motherhood, it all came naturally just like giving birth – just me, a midwife, and my daughter’s Godmother. When I was going into labor, I didn’t have any painkillers, in fact they wanted to send me home because I ‘looked too happy’ and didn’t make sounds. From day one, I let my instincts flow. My friend Lili, who came to support me, said after being next to me that childbirth didn’t look scary anymore. From that moment [it was all about] breastfeeding, doing 10 things at a time with 10 imaginary hands, cooking for Nicole, cleaning, making beats, and recording.
I never had a nanny so didn’t sleep even one night straight for the first few months after giving birth, getting up to change nappies/feeding. Carrying a buggy with Nicole and shopping bags (20 kilos) by myself up and down the stairs, I didn’t even need to go to the gym and had no time [to do so]. I was not planning to have kids until the age of 30, so [I] wasn’t prepared. But when I had Nicole, it all came naturally. It was my rebirth with her. I lost baby weight with two months cause motherhood kept me running up and down. Now [that] Nicole is more independent, I go to the gym to be healthy.
My daughter and I are best friends. When I consider marriage, it involves thinking of how the man is [going to get] along with her.”
