Adesua Etomi, Nigerian actress, and Banky W, her celebrity husband, have welcomed their first child — a boy — together.
The pair took to their individual social media pages to announce the good news on Monday, which turns out to be Etomi’s birthday.
In a terse post on her Instagram page, the film star revealed that the baby was birthed about four weeks ago.
She also described the child as her best birthday gift ever.
“You have a track record of keeping your word. Ọlọrun agbaye o, you are mighty. Four weeks ago I received the best birthday gift ever. Our son,” she wrote in a mixture of English and Yoruba.
Banky W also expressed his excitement at the development in a post wherein he appreciated his wife’s qualities.
“Happy birthday to my lady, my love and purpose partner. My world, my wife and baby Mama. I didn’t think it was possible for you to be more beautiful than you already were… but I was wrong,” he wrote.
“Because you’re not just beautiful, you’re strong. You’re grace and favour personified, and you’re so much more.
Words cannot properly express how grateful I am for you, how much I love you, or what we’ve been through.
“I’m thankful that you’re mine and that God made everything beautiful in His time. He turned our tears into triumph, and our loss into laughter. He’s changed our lives forever, here’s to the next (and best) chapter.
“Nothing I can say or do can top what He gave us. My baby had a baby and he’s everything we prayed for.”
In 2017, Banky W tied the knot with Etomi at a decorated wedding ceremony in South Africa.
