Nollywood actress, Ini Edo has opened up about her new life as a mother and shared some unknown truths about her child, whom she had through surrogacy.
During a conversation with television presenter, Lilian Afegbai on her talk program titled “Lilian’s Couch,” Ini Edo revealed that she decided to have a child through surrogacy because she wanted peace of mind.
“I chose for a donor for the sake of both my peace of mind and the peace of mind of my kid. Because it frightens 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, one of the primary reasons I decided to go with a donor was because of this. “It scares me so much when I see banter and controversies between a mother and a father over a baby in public forums.”
As a response to the criticism that was leveled at her at the time, she said, “Yes, I do have a daughter, and I had her via surrogacy.” Since the eggs came from my body, her genetic makeup is identical to mine. I made the decision to go in this direction so that I might realize my goal of having a family someday.
“I still have a fair number of eggs stored in case I decide to do surrogacy again or carry my kid myself,” she said. “It all depends on whether or not I decide to carry my baby myself.” Who is to say?
