Popular actress, Funke Akindele, on Sunday attended the Glo Lafta Fest at Golden Tulip Hotel in Festac Town, Lagos with a baby bump, confirming that she is pregnant.

The 40-year-old, who married Abdul Rasheed Bello, better known as JJC Skillz, in London in 2016, wore a blue outfit that showed off her bulging stomach.

This is her first pregnancy, although her husband is already a father of three children.

News that the twice married actress may is pregnant has triggered major excitement among her fans and loved ones who took to social media to celebrate and congratulate her.

The Jenifa’s Diary creator was recently involved in a social media drama after the founder of Mountain of Blessing and Miracle Church of Christ, Dr. Olagorioye Faleyimu, said she would never have children in her lifetime.

Her husband, in an Instagram post in June, hinted that she was pregnant, but he later claimed that he was only tapping into the #HallelujahChallenge initiated by Nathaniel Bassey.

Funke, who was unevenly yoked in a one-year marriage to Kehinde Almaroof Oloyede from 2012 to 2013, has not spoken about the baby bump video since it went viral.
