Nollywood actress Ini Edo has gone up for the first time about her experience as a mother and the challenges she has faced.
When asked how parenting has influenced her in a recent interview with her colleague, actress Lilian Afegbai, the mother of one said that motherhood has taught her that she can love another human more than oneself.
In addition, Ini Edo said, “All of a sudden, somebody else is more important than yourself. I’m somebody who just really loves myself and my space. But then, you realize that before you start to think about yourself, you wake up in the morning and you’re not thinking of yourself. You’re thinking of your child.”
The actress ended by saying, “There’s a consciousness that comes with the fact that you’re responsible for somebody else’s life.”
If you recall, the actress became a social media sensation in late 2021 after announcing that she had given birth to a child through surrogacy.
She explained in this manner, “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. I was hoping to talk about her on her first birthday in a few months, but mischief-makers beat me to it and spoilt the beautiful story with lies.”
Ini Edo also talked about her previous miscarriages, saying that they had no impact on her decision to have her kid through surrogacy.
