Nollywood actress, Ivie Okujaye, has announced the birth of her second child.

The 2009 Amstel Malta Box Office (AMBO) winner made the announcement in an Instagram post on Tuesday.

Posting a picture of herself and the baby girl, Ivie, wrote: “And suddenly, it was nine full months. Pregnancy is beautiful and magical but Kai, it is nine months!!

“Some days we’re energetically amazing; other days were filled with feeling sick, swollen feet, puffy lips, body changes, hurting ribs, backaches, sleepless nights, nerve pains and so much more”

The 30-year-old added: “But with every emotional and physical struggle, I got closer and closer to meeting my baby #2…

“That little person that is and will always be a part of me, my flesh and blood, my heartbeat, my new meaning of life… Thank you, Lord, for our perfect little baby girl…”

Once referred to as Little Genevieve, Ivie came to limelight after winning the Nigerian Breweries-sponsored AMBO.

That came with lead role alongside singer, Chibuzor Oji (Faze) in Izu Ojukwu’s 2011 musical drama, Alero’s Symphony.

She got married to Ezie Egbo in April 2015 and was delivered of a baby girl on July 1, 2016, a day before her husband’s birthday.

The Africa Movie Academy Awards (AMAA) and Africa Magic Viewers’ Choice Award (AMVCA) winner announced in December 2017 that she was expecting her second baby.

“Another God-Given Adventure!!! It’s going to be a beautiful Christmas,” she wrote in an Instagram post.
