Socialite businesswoman Vera Sidika has revealed that she stopped drinking alcohol when she realized she was pregnant.
According to the socialite, the last time she took alcohol was in March 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic hit the country.
The expectant mother said that she enjoys drinking while with friends that is when she is in parties or out clubbing, disclosing that after the pandemic and lockdown that became impossible.
“The last time I had alcohol was March 2020, yup! I wasn’t much of a drinker though. I’m a social drinker, only when clubbing. So since corona last year I hadn’t clubbed, therefore, no alcohol,”
She revealed that what made her even decide to quit alcohol is the fact that her husband singer Brown Mauzo doesn’t drink.
“Then came my hubby in August, God sent me a man that has never tasted alcohol in his entire life! Which made it even easier to forget,” she said.
Vera further celebrated one year of being sober saying that she is proud of herself knowing she will raise her baby as a sober mother.
"It’s been one and half years now. I stopped drinking way before I even got pregnant. Honestly, I’m so proud of myself because our baby will come into a family free from alcohol. Sober Mum and Dad. God is good," she added.
She however landed on the receiving end of a backlash after social media users released video clips of many times she drank alcohol in between March to July, 20 her confession day.
