I decided to have surrogacy in order to avoid drama with baby daddy Ini Edo

The popular actress Ini Edo has stated that she chose to take the surrogacy route in order to get a child to stay clear of the drama that normally is associated with single parenthood.

In an interview conducted with the well-known writer, Stella Dimoko Korkus, the 39-year-old said, “I opted for a donor for myself and my baby’s security. Ideally, the ideal scenario is the case that marriage is before children but we don’t live in a perfect world. Another reason why I chose the donor option is that it is extremely frightening when I witness debates and arguments between mothers and fathers over the birth of a child on forums that are public or I hear a man say that he will have his child even if there isn’t a positive outcome between the two parties. It is for me the fear of what it will affect the kid. I’m not one to let any circumstance dictate my life. I create lemonades with lemons that are thrown at me and I have no regrets. Life is fragile and quick to constantly strive to be perfect. I’m healthy and able to take care of my child just as I take charge of myself. I always wanted to have a child, and I am thankful to God for the possibility of donor surrogacy and surrogacy.”

When she admitted that she was pregnant just a few months ago, she stated, “Yes, I do have a daughter. I gave her birth via surrogacy. I had planned to talk about her when she turns one on her birthday (which will be) within a couple of months, but the mischief makers beat me to it and ruined the story by slandering her. They are my eggs, therefore genetically, she’s my blood. I took this route to realize my desire to become a mother. I’ve got a good amount of frozen eggs in case I choose to try surrogacy once more or have my baby by myself.”

In response to allegations of their child’s dad being a married man referred to as Kome the actress said, “It is so sad that there is a situation in Nigeria where a single woman has a relationship with another man that is married, it means something to the people they’re in a relationship. Kome has been my best friend for a long time and that’s exactly what it is, in fact. Come is a man of the family who is responsible and does not deserve to be part of my motherhood tale.”

The actress also talked about her previous miscarriages and said they did not affect her decision to use surrogacy. “I experienced a number of miscarriages, but that wasn’t the primary motive for choosing this method. I’m still hopeful of carrying children in my womb at some point in the future, God willing.”
