According to the 38-year-old mother of 5, she has found a new man who accepts her the way she is and appreciates every bit of her.

Zari revealed to her fans on Instagram that she has found the one despite what people say about her. She said the man’s name is Mr M(not revealing so much at the moment) and that the two are happy.

Zari posted; I’ve been there before and it still doesn’t make any sense to me.
Yea I am weak, I need to accept, Wana know why? I give my all. I build my men, I’m not the type that takes, I’m the type that looks at what we have and consider how we can double or triple the blessings. With you I’ve learned so much, I appreciate life itself because of your humbleness. I always imagined my forever but didn’t have an idea what my forever looked like. 5 kids, other guys etc but you still found me the sexiest woman alive. Wooooo ain’t I so blessed🙏. I love you so much Mr M, it’s not the material things you shower me with, I’ve seen those and even bigger and better. But, its you, your heart, your whole being and how you make me and my kids feel. It takes alot of courage from YOU Mr M.. 5kids, 38, wow….. you Heaven sent babe, That said, I end here! I l you M😘”
