Janet Mbugua and Eddie Ndichu were spotted together a year after she filed for divorce.
The two played a happy family as they enjoyed a meal together with their two sons Huru and Mali Ndichu.
The four went on a family dinner date at an undisclosed lavish hotel on Friday night ahead of Mali’s birthday celebration.
Mali will be celebrating his 5th birthday on Sunday September 17, 2023.
Janet and Eddie decided to get together to begin the celebrations early ahead of the big day.
Eddie, who is also the CEO of Wapi Pay, confirmed this in a caption to the posts where he said:
“Fine Dine. Gentlemen. #MaliTurns5. Birthday weekend begins! Celebrating the cheeky face, bigger than life character here! 🥰🥳 #MaliTurns5.”
It’s not clear if Janet and Eddie are back together or if they are peacefully co-parenting.
Janet filed for divorce from Eddie Ndichu a year after their marriage hit rock bottom.
A local publication reported that the former Citizen TV anchor sought a quiet divorce process in a bid not to attract media attention.
Janet and Eddie parted ways six years after they got married in a colorful wedding ceremony held at Chaka Ranch in Nyeri county.
Eddie and Janet were the perfect celebrity couple when they tied the knot on 30th May 2015 – a fairytale romance of a TV girl and a banker.
The wedding was an invite-only affair and their marriage likewise was off public eye for many years until the ugly side of their troubled union was exposed.
On October 8th 2021, Janet Mbugua – who is businesswoman and philanthropist – had a big event where she launched Inua Dada Centre to promote the girl child.
Her entire family including her parents, siblings and her own children attended the event – but her husband Eddie Ndichu was conspicuously missing.
Eddie’s absence raised eyebrows given that there were already tell-tale signs and rumors that all wasn’t well in their marriage.
Hawk-eye online sleuths had already noticed that Janet no longer wears her wedding ring and has also deleted the “wife” tag she had on her Instagram page.
The former Citizen TV anchor and her estranged husband also unfollowed each other on social media and deleted each other photos.
Eddie and Janet seemed to have been separated for some time as they haven’t been celebrating each other on special days like birthdays or Mothers Day unlike before.
Sources privy to Janet and Eddie’s separation intimated that infidelity was the reason that caused their marriage to hit rock bottom.
Eddie is said to have cheated on Janet for a while, the reason why she ultimately decided to leave him.
Eddie Ndichu’s infidelity was publicly exposed on October 17th 2021 after a scuffle at Emara Ole Sereni Hotel with the Murgor sisters – Stephanie and Cheryl Murgor who are in their early 20s.
Eddie and his twin brother Paul Ndichu were embroiled in an ugly altercation with the girls after they turned down their romantic advances.
A waitress at Ole Sereni hotel told blogger Edgar Obare that Ndichu brothers booked a two-bedroom suite at the facility and checked in while in company of four women.
