Entrepreneur Vera Sidika and her singer husband Brown Mauzo are the new parents in town after welcoming a bouncing baby girl on Wednesday.

The couple has named the baby Princess Asia Brown.

Vera shared posts on her Instagram page detailing the delivery.

The couple said baby Asia was born at exactly 10:21am on October 20, 2021, at a city hospital.

"A princess was born. You will always be the miracle that makes our life complete."

Mauzo also shared a photo saying he is happy to welcome a new member into their family.

Earlier Vera had said she was due in early November.

Vera opted for an elective cesarean delivery (a scheduled surgery for non-medical reasons).

Elective CS is preferred by some since it gives them more control in deciding when their baby is born. It can also reduce the anxiety that comes with waiting for labour to start.

Through her Instagram, Vera said she wanted her baby born on Mashujaa Day so she can celebrate her birthday with family.

"I personally chose the date 20th October, so she can be celebrating her birthday from home with family. Since it's a public holiday," she wrote.

Vera was ready to foot the bills of a VIP delivery room at a private hospital in Nairobi for her desired C-section delivery.

Explaining her decision, she said she only changed her mind about having children after she realised there are painless options to the journey as she fears going through labour.

"Based on my experience so far. During surgery I felt no pain. It's been 21 hours after surgery. Still no pain at all and I can get up, walk around on my own am surprised.

"Actually, felt so good during surgery. Some kind of high, I was awake, saw and heard everything."

Vera's mum, husband and his two brothers were with her during the delivery.

"My baby is so pretty, smiles a lot too. Just like her mom and dad. My mum is obsessed with her."

"Whoever said CS surgery was so bad... I swear to God, it was the best decision ever!"

Vera said her baby is Mauzo's lookalike.

"He is super excited gosh! She looks so much like him. Daddy's little girl."

"We thank God for the safe delivery of our beautiful healthy baby girl. Asia Brown. God is good. Born on hero's day. Such a blessing."

Vera's daughter has already garnered more than 25,000 followers on Instagram.
