First Mother’s Day & My Wedding Gowns

12495228_10154029258964602_4994691945603045119_nI’m officially part of the club!!! My very first Mother’s Day as a mother!!! In case you’re wondering when I became a mother, check out the blog posted back in January. I mean, who knew! I never thought it would feel so good and am so grateful to have my sweet chubby cheek little munchkin @DaGoldChain, who is now almost 4 months old this week. He has really changed my world and given a new meaning to my life in a way that I could never have imagined.  There is nothing like love for one’s own child which I have only now come to realize knows no bounds.13147520_10154205241339602_8089282953329058887_o

And what about the baby father my Facebook friends keep asking? 🙂 Well, he’s been my partner-in-crime for a decade now and happens to be my best kept secret who shares my desire to keep our private life far from the public eye!  I am so blessed to have a husband (yes you read right, husband) who understands me and is confident enough in our relationship not to feel the need to be included as part of my public persona. We had a very private fairy-tale wedding at the Pierre in New York, with a very international flare which included our families and friends from around the world.  Private as it was, we still got featured in Town & Country magazine as a newly wed shortly after. I think that had something to do with my gorgeous haute couture wedding dress designed by none other than the legendary John Galliano during his tenure at Dior Haute Couture. The dress was one of 4 changes I had that day. Others were by Reem Acra, Badgley Mischka and traditional Nigerian attire. This would be the very first time I am publicly sharing my wedding dress photographs, after all these years. I guess I am drunk on motherhood and it feels so damn good! Did I mention my baby & I were featured on the cover of LadyBrille magazine?12716056_10153980102479602_8841149948470260370_o

A pre-mother’s day gift from my beloved husband and baby

I am incredibly lucky to have the love of my husband and my baby who somehow conspired to present me a pre-mother’s day gift, the most beautiful bouquet of flowers I have ever seen, matched in beauty only by its amazing fragrance which I cannot even begin to describe. It has perfumed our home like a spring garden!

Wishing all you mothers and mothers-to-be, the very brightest Mother’s Day.
