Yes, I had A Baby Through Surrogacy – Ini Edo



Yes, I had A Baby Through Surrogacy - Ini Edo

Nollywood Actress Ini Edo has confirmed a report that she has got a baby through surrogacy. She spoke in an interview with journalist and blogger Stella Dimoko Korkus.

Confirming the development, Ini Edo said: “Yes I do have a daughter and I had her through surrogacy. The eggs are mine and so genetically she’s my blood. I chose this path to fulfil my dream of becoming a mother.

I still have a good number of eggs frozen in case I decide to do surrogacy again or carry my baby myself, who knows.”

She said she opted for a donor for ” me and my baby’s peace of mind. Another major reason I opted for a donor is because it scares me so much when I see banter and controversies between a mother and a father over a baby in public forums or when I see the man insisting he wants his child if things dont work out between both parties.. For me it’s the fear of what that would mean for the child .Ideally, it’s marriage then children but we are not living in an ideal world.

“I am not someone who allows any situation to control me. I make lemonades out of lemons thrown my way and have no regrets. Life itself is so fragile and short to be striving for perfection. I am well and capable of taking care of my own child as I’ve been taking care of myself .I wanted a child and thank God for the options of surrogacy and donors..”

On why she herself did not break the news, she said she was not avoiding talking about it. She also said that the alleged father of the child was not the right person.

“No I was not, I was hoping to talk about her on her 1st birthday in a few months but mischief makers beat me to it and spoilt the beautiful story with lies. The sad thing about this is dragging an innocent man into something that has absolutely nothing to do with him.

“I naturally make friends better with guys than women.. I do have a few female friends don’t get me wrong but I relate better with people who are older and way more experienced in life than I am. I relate with people who bring real value to my life .How many people can one possibly date? I have loads of male friends, most of them, I am friends with their entire family including wives .

“It is so sad that in Nigeria, when a ‘single’ woman is friends with a guy, it must mean to people that they are dating ..I mean make it make sense, Kome has been my friend for years and that’s what it is, period. He is a responsible family man and doesn’t deserve to be dragged into my motherhood story…… Anyone saying that he is the father of my daughter is a lie from the pit of hell,” she said.

She explained surrogacy, noting that the process is very expensive.

Her words : “Surrogacy process is quite expensive, and starts with the stimulation process ,egg retrieval and insemination on the chosen surrogate which in my case was all handled strictly by the hospital.”

On her she feels as a mother, she said “It is an awesome feeling and experience and as I watch my daughter grow every day, I am in awe of the miracles that God has sent my way and I am so thankful and grateful to be my daughter’s mother.”

Ini Edo said she would happily recommend this route for all women trying to conceive naturally but finding it difficult.

“I would recommend surrogacy for any one having difficulty conceiving …I had a series of miscarriages in the past but that wasn’t my reason for going this route .I still hope to carry babies In my womb in the future, God willing,” she noted.

But while the actress is a celebrity whose face is easily recognisable in the public, she said she was not ready to expose her daughter to her colleagues and on the social media .

“I really hope to keep my baby off the social media , and this was why I’ve been reluctant putting her out there. I would love to keep everything about her private for now. There are a lot of celebrities whose children are not growing up on the social media pages and living normal lives.. That is how I want it to be for my daughter… it is a choice to put her out there or not and I choose to keep her private”, she said.

But while Ini Edo loves children, she is not ready to get married.

She said: ” Right now, marriage isn’t my priority, I’ve been married before and it wasn’t exactly a bed of rosesoses. Marriage is a good thing instituted by God and ultimately most people’s desire but I am not just crazy about the distractions and the complications that come with it.. I am not against it though…

“I’m in the phase of taking care of my child and focusing my positive energies on motherhood and my running businesses. This is all I have time for right now and shun all negative news or energy…..”

Responding, the actress wrote, “Your videos brought back memories, sad memories, painful memories, I have not been able to stop thinking about them, I cannot even sleep. Did you listen to yourself at all? I don’t think you did.

“You manipulated and sexually abused my sister and you thought I would be calm, you expect me not to be furious, how are you processing the things you did and the things you said? I don’t understand you.

“You talk about apology and forgiveness. Forgiving you is a process for me. I forgave you then, for my sanity, just when I am trying to move on, you do something else that triggers me and I get mad at you again and I beg God to help me forgive you again.

“The hurt is really deep, the pain, the trauma, the disappointment, the sleepless nights, the tears that drenched my pillow, the shock, the entire experience is indescribable. Like I said, there is so much to say. I don’t have the words yet,” she said.

Dunamis Church Removes Sammie Okposo From Ministers’ List



Dunamis Church Delists Sammie Okposo From Activities

Dunamis International Gospel Centre has removed gospel singer, Sammie Okposo, from the list of artists expected to participate in its concert on Friday following his adultery scandal.

A new flyer sighted on Instagram showed that the singer whose name was previously listed to perform has been dropped.

This comes after the singer confessed and publicly apologized for cheating on his wife Ozioma with a US-based lady.

Apologizing in a now deleted Instagram post on Tuesday, he wrote: ”Dear friends, I need to bring a very unfortunate incident to your attention as I am not proud of it but know that this is the right thing to do.

“On my recent trip to the USA (late 2021), I got intimately involved with a lady, knowing that this was not appropriate as a married man and a minister of the gospel. I am ashamed and regret my action as it has caused a lot of pain to my dear wife, Ozioma, my family and I.

“As I work in making peace with God, repenting and asking for His forgiveness, I am suspending myself from all ministry work until full restoration as this is what is proper and what I know I owe God and His people.”
