Nigerian actress, Ini Edo, says she had her daughter through surrogacy.
The actress stated this in a chat with Stella Dimoko Korkus.
Surrogacy is a practice where a woman (a surrogate) carries a child for another person through artificial insemination of eggs.
Earlier, the rumour of her having a child through surrogacy had gone viral on the social media.
Confirming the news, Ini Edo said she took this part in order to fulfill her dream of becoming a mother.
Also, she stated that she initially planned to make it public on her daughter’s first birthday.
“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.” she confirmed.
“I still have a good number of eggs frozen in case I decide to do surrogacy again or carry my baby myself who knows.
“I was hoping to talk about her on her first birthday in a few months; but mischief makers beat me to it and spoilt the beautiful story with lies.
Commenting on rumour that she had the baby for a married man known as Kome.
She clarified “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.
“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.”
When asked about her daughter’s father, Ini Edo said “I 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 don’t work out between both parties.
“For me it’s the fear of what that would mean for the child .Ideally, its marriage then children but we are not living in an ideal world.”
The actress further revealed that although she had series of miscarriages in the past; she is still of the belief that she would carry babies in the future.
She concluded “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.
