Stanley and Oge got married in June 14, 2014; and to celebrate arrival of their first child Namchi Katriel, they’re sharing their maternity photoshoot by Evi Photography with BellaNaija Living. They also shared the meaning behind the pretty names, Namchi meaning God’s beauty and Katriel is Hebrew for God is my crown.

The photographer told BN Living;

They were a bit shy about the shoot and being in front of a camera showing a bare bump. Lol. Oge wanted something simple, classy and beautiful which we made happen.

Oge told BN Living;

It is written in the Holy book that every good and perfect gift comes from God; our beautiful girl is indeed a good and perfect gift from God. From her conception through pregnancy, it was God’s goodness and perfection all the way. I remember doing like four pregnancy tests just to make sure I really was pregnant because I didn’t have any of the documented pregnancy  symptoms. We are so joyful and blessed to welcome our baby girl into this world.

Congratulations to the new parents!

      Beautiful doesn’t even begin to describe these pictures. Never bought the idea of taking half naked pictures to appreciate the fruit of the womb.

    Did they actually share the baby’s name before he/she arrived? Thought people always say it’s bad luck or something. Anyway safe delivery to her. May they as a family know joy in abundance IJN Amen.
