Nollywood actress, Ini Edo
Nollywood actress, Ini Edo, has confirmed rumours of her welcoming a daughter through a surrogate mother.
After days of keeping silent since the rumours began, the actress finally opened up in an interview with Stella Korkus, which was published on Friday.
Surrogacy is a practice where a woman (a surrogate) carries a child for another person through artificial insemination of eggs.
Confirming the news, Edo stated that the daughter was genetically hers because her eggs were used to fertilize the child.
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 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.”
She also mentioned that she had the daughter almost a year ago, stating that she planned on breaking the news herself.
