Congratulations are in order for Tanzanian supermodel, Millen Magese. She is now a mother after years of battling infertility!
She took to her Instagram to reveal that she has welcomed a baby boy on July 13 at a hospital in Columbia, New York.
“Father I thank you for making me A Woman and Finally A mother. Father I thank you for bringing my dad back What a gift,” she writes on her Instagram, adding, “I love you my Son ”
For many years, the model suffered endometriosis – a condition she was diagnosed with when she was just 25. Endometriosis is a disorder in which the membranes that are supposed to line the inside of the uterus extend outside of it, causing severe pain during menstruation because they can’t be broken down and shed.
In March 2016, the model passed out at the Jo’burg Fashion Week due to the intense pain and was resuscitated by a medical professionals at the show. “I used to do 28-38 shows in bigger fashion weeks then but now only 4 shows,” she said in one of the clips shared on her page.
Beyond passing out at shows and dealing with the frequent pain, the model also battled with infertility caused by the condition. However, Millen is now a mum and she can’t stop thanking God, her friends and family and fans who stood by her all these years.
