Nigerian actress, Ini Edo, welcomed a baby daughter at the age of 39, making her a mother for the first time.
An interview with Stella Dimoko Korkus revealed the news of her pregnancy with the legendary film actress.
An interview with Ini Edo disclosed that she had a baby via surrogacy, as well as the identity of the father.
In order to realize her ambition of becoming a mother, the actress chose surrogacy, 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.”
Speaking further, Ini Edo admitted that she still has a number of her eggs frozen in case she decides to have a child again or even carry it by herself.

Ini Edo’s baby daddy
Also in the interview, Ini noted that there is no baby daddy for her child because she opted for a donor.
According to her, seeing controversies surrounding women and their baby daddies on social media had scared her and made her decide to use a donor.
Ini stated that she is very capable of caring for a child and she thanked God for the option of donors and surrogacy because she wanted a baby.
Actress speaks on keeping her child a secret
Also in the chat with SDK, Ini explained that she was not avoiding speaking about her baby and she had planned to do so on the child’s first birthday which is just a few months away.
However, the actress noted that trouble makers beat her to it and added lies to her beautiful story.
The actress also stated that an innocent man was also dragged into the drama after it was claimed that he was the baby’s father.
Speaking on the allegations, Ini said:
“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…… Anyone saying that he is the father of my daughter is a lie from the pit of hell.”
