DJ-cum-actress Pierra Makena reveals that dressing her baby is 'like a touch of Heaven.' As we mark Mother's Day, she shares her motherhood journey
What you love about being a new mum?
I now have a purpose. I work for a reason...and someone truly looks up to me like I did my mum.
How different do you view life now that you are a new mum?
I don't joke with life any more. Everything I do, anything I do or say, has to make sense. It's the best thing that's ever happened to me.
Did you find out the gender of your baby before she was born?
Yes of course. I was too excited to wait.
What life's lessons did your mum teach you that you will impart on your daughter?
I would teach her to know God and trust in Him, to be well-behaved all the time and to always follow my dreams.
What advice would you give new mothers?
Enjoy every step...the kids grow up really fast. Also, pray for them a lot.
What does Mother's Day mean to you?
At least someone honours us for the labour pain! It's always a reminder that God has put you in charge of someone else and you have to do it well.
