Ini Edo Confirms Welcoming Daughter Through Surrogacy, Speaks On Father's Identity

KanyiDaily recalls that Instagram blogger, Cutie Juls, had revealed that the 39-year-old actress welcomed her daughter through surrogacy with a married man identified as Kome.

During an interview with Stella Korkus, Ini Edo confirmed that she welcomed her child through surrogacy – a practice where a woman (a surrogate) carries a child for another person through artificial insemination of eggs.

According to her, the girl was genetically hers because her eggs were used to fertilize the child, adding that she chose this path to fulfill her dream of becoming a mother.

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.

“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. Who knows.

The actress noted that she had the child almost a year ago, stating that she planned on breaking the news herself before Cutie Juls published shared the story.

She said, “I was hoping to talk about her on her 1st birthday in a few months but mischief makers beat me to it and spoilt the beautiful story with lies.”

Reacting to rumours that her child’s father was a married man, identified as Kome, the actress said, “The sad thing about this is dragging an innocent man Into something that has absolutely nothing to do with him.

“I relate with People who bring real value to my life .how many people can one possibly date? I have loads of Male friends, most of them, I am friends with their entire family including wives.

“It is so sad that in Nigeria, when a ‘single’ woman is friends with a guy, it must mean to people that they are dating ..I mean make it make sense, 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.”

When asked why she opted for a donor, Ini Edo said, “I opted for a donor for me and my baby’s peace of mind.

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 or when I see the man insisting he wants his child if things don’t work out between both parties..

“For me it’s the fear of what that would mean for the child. Ideally, its marriage then children but we are not living in an ideal world..”

“I am not someone who allows any situation to control me. I make lemonades out of lemons thrown my way and have no regrets. Life itself is so fragile and short to be striving for perfection.

“I am well and capable of taking care of my own child as I’ve been taking care of myself .I wanted a child and thank God for the options of surrogacy and donors…”

“It is an awesome feeling and experience and as I watch my daughter grow every day, I am in awe of the miracles that God has sent my way and I am so thankful and grateful to be my daughters mother,” she added.
