Nosa tells Brenda that he did not spend the money in their joint account to buy her presents. He spent it on buying supplies for the new baby! The baby that is not conceived yet? He says the baby will be conceived eventually and because he did not know if it is a boy or girl, he was forced to order both sets of cloths!
