Munachi Abii Pregnant For Younger Boyfriend?

Posted in: , ,

Twitter user who goes by the handle Opara Cyn or Nigerian Beauties have been tagging Nigerian gossip bloggers with the news that former Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria, Munachi Abi is pregnant. She tweeted the picture above and said. "Muna is pregnant lol. the father is the BOY in the green Tomi."
