Moving on from her past mistakes, the comedian revealed that she believed she couldn’t have a child because she had been cursed by the men she had slept with and whose pregnancies she had terminated.
“I started counting how many times I aborted at campus, I started praying prayers for all the men that I have ever imbibed. I was like who cursed me? Then you are like God you said when we ask for forgiveness, we are forgiven. And the truth is when you ask Him for a child, He tells you yes,

After years of being childless, Kansiime was blessed with her first child Selassie Ataho, on April 15, 2021, with her husband Skylanta.
“I asked God to forgive me and I remember telling God that I want a child, I am retiring at 35 years and he answered my prayer and gave a child at 36 years old,” said Kansiime.
Her first husband divorced her in 2017 after four years of marriage, with reports claiming that the two split up due to her inability to bear children.
