Ini Edo Confirms Welcoming A Daughter Through Surrogacy

Popular Nollywood actress, Ini Edo, has confirmed that she actually welcomed a daughter through a surrogate mother.

The brown skin actress disclosed this in an interview with Stella Korkus, which was made public on Friday.

Confirming this, 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.”

She disclosed that, “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.”

While disclosing that she had the daughter almost a year ago, she stated that, “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.”

Meanwhile, while reacting to rumours that her child’s father was a married man, identified as Kome, Ini Edo made it known that It is  sad that in Nigeria, when a ‘single’ woman is friends with a guy, it must mean to people that they are dating.

She noted that, “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. I opted for a donor for me and my baby’s peace of mind.”

She added that, “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.”

Ini Edo also revealed that, “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.”
