I opted for surrogacy to avoid baby daddy drama –Nollywood actress Ini Edo
Nollywood actress, Iniobong Edo, recently welcomed her first child, a daughter, via a surrogate.The 39-year-old actress broke the news during an interview with popular blogger, Stella Dimoko, on Friday.
Following this revelation, the actress has become the second Nigerian celebrity to openly admit to welcoming a baby via surrogacy after an ex-beauty queen, Nike Osinowo, did the same in 2013.
During the interview, the actress revealed that she had undergone surrogacy to fulfill her life-long dream.
She 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 fulfill 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”.
The actress said she didn’t want to talk about her daughter until she turns one but was forced to make the news public when ‘‘mischief-makers’’ started speculating lies.
