Ini Edo, a Nollywood actress, gave birth to her first child via surrogacy. 

Surrogacy is a type of pregnancy in which a woman carries and delivers a baby on behalf of someone who is unable to have children. 

In a surrogate pregnancy, eggs from the mother or an egg donor are fertilized with sperm from a sperm donor to create an embryo. 

The embryo is implanted in the uterus of the surrogate mother, who will carry the child to term.

During an interview with a popular blogger, the 39-year-old actress revealed the news. 

Following this revelation, the actress is the second Nigerian celebrity to openly admit to having a baby through surrogacy, following an ex-beauty queen, Nike Osinowo, who did so in 2013. 

During the interview, the actress revealed that she had used surrogacy to realize a long-held dream. The actress also stated that she has a large number of frozen eggs in case she decides to use surrogacy again or carry the baby herself.

The actress said she didn't want to talk about her daughter until she turned one, but she was forced to when "mischief-makers" began speculating lies. 

Ini Edo also denied rumors that her child's father was a married man commonly known as Kome. 

Kome has been her friend for years, and that is what he is, according to her. Kome, she added, is a responsible family man who does not deserve to be dragged into her motherhood story. 
The actress also stated that she chose a donor for the sake of her and her baby's peace of mind.

Ini Edo also stated that she chose a donoe because she is terrified when she sees banter and controversies between parents over a baby in public places. 

"Another major reason I chose a donor is that it scares me so much when I see banter and controversies in public forums between a mother and a father over a baby," she explained. 
"I'm afraid of what that would mean for the child." 

Marriage, she believes, should come before children, but we do not live in an ideal world.
