"For those on a similar journey or hoping to get on the same journey, May God protect and guide you. Have a blessed day ahead," she wrote.
She however did not disclose the gender of the incoming newborn, nor did she reveal the due date.
Mukiri, who turns 34 years old on January 25, tied the knot with her longtime boyfriend and fiancé Isaac Ng’ang’a at an event that took place at the Windsor Country Club Golf Course grounds on November 2021. They marked their wedding anniversary on November 2022.
"Awwww, can't believe it's 12 months already. God has been faithful. It's been an amazing first year with My ride or die," she stated.
The two met in 2020. During a Q&A session on her YouTube channel, she revealed that she met Isaac at a chama party that comedienne Teacher Wanjiku had invited her to.
“Isaac was seated at the end of the round table under the shade of a tree and I didn’t think much of him. He was there playing cool and we were having a good time."
“Eventually, Isaac came over to where I was and told me I had a beautiful smile and had been watching me from the far end and the rest is history, now we are getting married," she explained.
Isaac has continually maintained a low profile and only came to the limelight after his engagement with Mukiri. The two haven't showcased their relationship on social media since their wedding.
The media personality became the second major celebrity to announce her pregnancy in 2023 after former socialite cum entrepreneur Amber Ray, who is expecting her child with businessman Kennedy Rapudo.
