Tanzanian top model Millen Magese is the cover star for the March/April issue of Genevieve magazine. Dressed in a stunning gown by Texas-based Nigerian designer Esé Azénabor, inside the former Miss Tanzania opens up on dealing with endometriosis, surviving IVF and the miracle of the birth of her son, Prince Kairo.
Dealing with endometriosis is a nightmare and according to Millen, you hardly have a life. You can’t plan anything because of the pain that never goes away.
Millen details how seeing that many women with endometriosis face infertility issues, she opted for IVF. 10 days after the procedure, she took a pregnancy test and found she was pregnant. But it didn’t happen as easy as it sounds. The mother of one went through so much during the process.
In her words,
“I was overjoyed. I couldn’t believe it. I cried! But unlike at other times, these were tears of joy! I felt like telling the world but I had to restrain myself. I didn’t want to announce it because I had lost too many pregnancies already. I kept it a secret until a week after my son was born. I can’t describe the feeling that moment I held my son in my hands”.
Congratulations to Millen on her Prince. They look so beautiful in these shots featured in the interview.
