Etinosa Idemudia

Nollywood actress Etinosa Idemudia has revealed that it took her seven years to conceive her child.

The Warri born actress said this in an interview published by Punch on Sunday.

“I waited for about seven years (before having this child). My advice to awaiting mothers is that they should take their minds off the issue and relax. It is a tough advice that almost sounds crazy but that was the advice I got from my sister-in-law years ago.

“She is also a polycystic ovary syndrome conqueror. It worked back then but I lost the pregnancies. Then, I threw away her advice and naturally became anxious. Anxiety turned to desperation and I did take in again, even with the drugs I was taking then. It was not until last year that I finally learnt to relax. Let go and let God,” she wrote.

Etinosa also added that she does not intend on revealing her husband’s identity.

She said, “Nigeria is filled with very toxic people so one needs to protect one’s loved ones. I have never revealed the identity of my parents or any siblings and I don’t intend to reveal the identity of my husband and children, except they opt for that themselves.

“I signed up for a public life when I switched careers to join the entertainment industry. I am the public person, not my family members, so I have to respect and guard their privacy. Besides, what does the public need such information for? Did my fans conclude that I am not married?

“I would rather they are curious about my career plans which is what directly affects them.Etinosa welcomed her daughter on December 25, 2020.”

On January 18, she revealed her daughter’s name as Ofure Izoduwa Christabel.
