I Opted For Surrogacy To Avoid Baby Daddy Drama – Ini Edo

In Akwa-Cross Entertainment, Breaking News, Reports

Popular actress, Ini Edo, has said that she decided to go the surrogacy route to have her child in order to avoid the drama that usually accompanies single parenthood.

In an interview with a popular blogger, Stella Dimoko Korkus, the 39-year-old said, “I opted for a donor for me and my baby’s peace of mind. Ideally, it should be marriage before children but we are not living in an ideal world. Another 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 on public forums or when I see the man insisting that he wants his child if things do not work out between both parties. For me, it is the fear of what that would mean for the child. I am not someone who allows any situation 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 child as I have been taking care of myself. I wanted a child and I thank God for the options of surrogacy and donors.”

Admitting that she had a child about a year ago, she said, “Yes, I do have a daughter and I had her through surrogacy. I was hoping to talk about her on her first birthday (which comes) in a few months but mischief-makers beat me to it and spoilt the beautiful story with lies. The eggs are mine, so genetically, she is my blood. I chose this path to fulfill 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.”

Reacting to allegations about her child’s father being a married man identified as Kome, the actress said, “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. 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.”

The actress also opened up about her past miscarriages while pointing out that it did not influence her decision on surrogacy. “I had a series of miscarriages in the past but that was not my reason for going this route. I still hope to carry babies in my womb in the future, God willing.”
