Ini Edo, a Nollywood actress, has opened up about how motherhood has changed her life.
Apart from herself, the actress claims that parenthood has taught her to love someone else.
“The notion that you may truly love somebody else more than yourself,” Ini stated in an interview with Lilian Afegbai on the chat show Lilian’s Couch. Someone else has suddenly become more important than you.”
“I’m the type of person that adores herself and her surroundings. But then you realize that before you start thinking about yourself, you don’t think about yourself when you get up in the morning. Ini Edo said, “You’re thinking of your child.”
In a December interview with Stella Dimoko, Ini Edo revealed that she had given birth to a kid through surrogacy.
“Yes, I do have a daughter, and I had her through surrogacy,” she responded to critics at the time. She is genetically my blood because the eggs are mine. I chose this road in order to realize my ambition of becoming a mother.”
When asked about her child’s biological father, the popular actress stated that she chose a donor for “peace of mind.”
“I chose a donor for the sake of my peace of mind and that of my child. Another reason I chose a donor is that it terrifies me so much when I see public forums full of banter and disagreements between a mother and a father over a baby, or when I see the male demanding on his child if things don’t work out between both parties.”
