Nollywood actress, Ini Edo has taken to her social media platform to unravel more details about her surrogate birth.
A couple of days ago, Ripples Nigeria confirmed that the 39-year-old thespian welcomed her first child through surrogacy. Speaking about her journey into motherhood, Ini Edo mentioned that she opted for a donor just to avoid the drama associated “between a mother and a father over a baby in public forums.”
Her statement instigated uproar among Nigerians on social media.
The actress was specifically called out for choosing a random man as her sperm donor in an attempt to bear a child.
In response to this claim, the actress disputed it in a now-deleted Insta Story post; stating that her sperm donor isn’t a random male. She further urged those invading her private life to focus on important issues in the country.
”My daughter’s donor isn’t just a random person. Doesn’t make him any more than a donor. Now y’all can start to focus on what is really important in this country and leave us the hell alone,” she wrote.
