It was an odd day out for NTV News anchor Dennis Okari. Not only was he celebrating Father’s Day with his daughter Ivanna. He celebrated her sixth birthday too!
Images shared on Betty Kyallo’s Instagram page appeared to show the former couple allaying their differences to celebrate Ivanna’s special day.
Dennis and his ex-wife Betty Kyallo spent yesterday together as they took part in their daughter’s birthday party. The two haven’t been photographed in the same vicinity since their acrimonious split close to 5 years ago.
This sighting was therefore a first for the ages as the co-parents made amends and spent time with the fruit of their short-lived marriage.
One could see the joy on Ivanna’s face as she celebrated her 6th birthday with her two famous parents. The event was graced by many of Ivanna’s friends with the birthday girl clad in a pretty pink tracksuit.
Many of Betty’s fans commented on the photos with most focusing on Okari’s presence in the photos considering that was the first time he was seen on her page.
“This was the perfect family” commented Rachael Masika on Instagram.
“Is that Dennis Okari? This is beautiful. Happy Birthday Ivanna” exclaimed Steven Chege.
The change in relations between Betty and Dennis is pretty interesting considering the cold war that was ignited between the two earlier into their marriage.
Betty’s sister Mercy and Okari’s friend Ken Mijungu exchanged blows on social media after Betty failed to thank Okari after her daughter left the hospital after a long stay.
Mijungu pointed out that Okari had been an integral part in financially and emotionally supporting his daughter during her hospital stay.
Betty seems to be enjoying her life to the full after her unceremonious departure from Mediamax owned K24 in a sweeping move that has terminated the tenures of several other anchors including sports anchor Tony Kwalanda.
