Ubi and Baby Franklin BellaNaija

Welcome son to this world.
Take God as your Alpha and Omega, The beginning and the End.
Few hours before you were born I prayed and prayed cried and cried seeing your mum go through so much pain to push you out, I must say she is a very strong woman, but once you were ready to come out you didn’t waste our time it was quick and by The special Grace of God you made it and your Mum is strong and Healthy.
I owe you everything good this world will offer, but most importantly your parents are devoted Christians I’ll Teach you in the way of The Lord.
Take life easy when you grow up and don’t take it too serious, east, rest and be hard working. I welcome what ever decision you take in life, but I’ll prayer for you daily that you live a life of worthy of emulation and become a great man.
What ever career you choose I am very comfortable with it, but permit me to suggest been a Lawyer, Doctor, and Political scientist that will help change our society for good.
Learn to Respect women and treat them with care, be very respectful and cordial to those above you.
Don’t expect everyone to Love you, but love and respect people as Christ Loved the Church.
Stay away from peer Pressure
Live within your means and live in the way of the Lord.
I’ll leave it here for now God Bless you and keep you Safe for me and your mum and all our families and friends.
We will keep talking son, let this bond begin ❤️?? God bless everyone who prayed with us and stood by The Franklins till this point.

Thank You ???????????????????

      Naveah deserved it and more! You people want to be typing rubbish about people you barely know, but can’t take little shade thrown at you.

      Why are you bitter, is it your money? Take it easy before your depression leads you to suicide.

      @Alexandria or Egypt I can never be depressed I reject it!it is overly likely that you are a cheap babe, hence the need for this your faux pas ! So I ain’t got time! Make una dey get long throat for big thing wey una hands nor reach! They tap into people blessings,wey una know how far!very tactless generation of women who are so materialistic that the day the Man nor see to lavish again,marriage go scatter or them go start to do runs for their husband house!Nonsense!

    Ubi and Linda are case studies as to why you need to marry a man that worships you. Ubi always gives off this ‘I can’t believe I married a woman like Lilian vibe’. Note to babes. let the man love and pursue you while you respond. Congrats Lilian and Ubi. May this son be like a plant grown up in his youth and may he fulfill his God given purpose.
