Farley, Wife Expecting First Baby

Spread the love
TEN months after Chief Secretary of the Tobago House of Assembly Farley Augustine and Takyana Nedd tied the knot, they are expecting their first child.
Augustine confirmed this on his Facebook page on Sunday, saying, “I use to jokingly tell my mother that I will have my first child in time for her retirement so I will get free babysitting. Yesterday on the anniversary of her death, I couldn’t help but stay in bed all day and think about the fact that she would have retired earlier this year just in time for the blessings of a new baby.
“But no use weeping over what could have been when there is plenty joy in embracing what is.”
The couple were married at Flagstaff Hill, Charlotteville, in overcast conditions, on December 12, last year.
Augustine said, “Today as we prepare to receive our first baby (of hopefully many 😜), we solicit your prayers more than ever. Prayers for a healthy new born and prayers that we will figure this all out. Having a new baby in a home where we are called for an already demanding leadership portfolio will no doubt be a challenge.”

He said he has not yet figured out how the late nights with a baby will work or how he will juggle his time helping his wife given the demands of his job.
Augustine said, “There is no playbook to read from as this is the first time a Chief Secretary and his wife will welcome a new baby while in office. But I welcome the challenge.
“God will help us.”
Four photos, credited to Melvern Isaac, accompanied the post and Augustine said the stylists were Keylon Keymer Whitlock Jr, Larissa Dalrymple, Jodi Balfour and Q’te Hairven.
