Actress Ini Edo on Thursday shared her daughter Light’s first picture on social media in celebration of her second birthday.
The 40-year-old shared the photo on Instagram. Still protective of her child whom she bore by surrogacy, Ini chose to show the side view of the girl’s face with her eyes shut.
Ini described Light as “the most precious, adorable little girl” who has brought comfort and joy to her life.
She wrote, “On the 15th of March 2021, God blessed me with the Greatest Gift and my biggest heart desire. A Shining LIGHT and the most precious, adorable little girl. I never knew how much my life would change and how much comfort and Joy a human could bring… My smart and loving Princess, I love you more than life itself.”
The Citation actress added, “As you turn 2, I re-dedicate you to the God that Gave you to me. The One who never sleeps nor slumber… HE is doing an excellent job at taking care of us… Grow in wisdom and abundance of Grace my little Angel. Mummy loves you too much…..”
In 2021, Ini revealed that she chose surrogacy to fulfil her dream of being a mother.
“Yes I do have a daughter and I had her through surrogacy. The Eggs are mine and so genetically she’s my blood. I chose this path to fulfil my dream of becoming a mother. I still have a good number of eggs frozen in case I decide to do surrogacy again or carry my baby myself, who knows,” she told blogger Stella Dimoko Korkus.
Ini was once married to Philip Ehiagwina. The marriage lasted from 2008 to 2014.
