Colleagues including Mercy Aigbe, Iyabo Ojo, and Nkechi Blessing Sunday have sent congratulatory messages to Nigerian actress, Biola Adebayo, over the birth of her first child.
The actress announced the arrival of her baby boy via surrogacy on Tuesday, 11 April.
The elated actress shared the news on her official Instagram page, revealing the challenges she and her husband faced before finally having their bundle of joy.
According to her post, the couple had experienced one cancelled surrogate cycle after another. They have had three failed surrogate attempts in the last two years.
Finally, they have been blessed with their son through a surrogate mom.
The actress expressed gratitude to God for seeing them through the tough times and for making it possible for them to have their own child.
Biola Adebayo’s post was accompanied by a picture revealing the baby’s legs, with the caption: “It’s a new dawn! Welcome to the world Baby ‘TA’.”
Surrogacy is a method of assisted reproduction. It involves a woman carrying a pregnancy for another person or couple who cannot conceive or carry a child themselves.
It has become quite popular in recent years, particularly in cases where couples have difficulty conceiving due to medical reasons.
Congratulations to the new mother and her family!
