Nollywood actress Tricia Eseigbe-Kerry on Tuesday gave birthday to her first child – a baby girl – after 10 years of marriage.
The day was also her birthday.
Fellow actress and spokesperson of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) Monalisa Chinda was among the first people to announce the birth on social media.
Giving her own testimony, Tricia wrote in several Instagram posts on Wednesday: “I want to thank everyone for the birthday wishes I received yesterday and a joyous birthday gift that I received from our Almighty father. The birth of my angelic baby girl.”
She then narrated how she went into labour on the eve of her birthday and the arrival of the baby hours into her birthday.
Tricia and Kingsley Kerry got married in a colourful ceremony in Lagos late 2009.
Among those who attended the wedding were Uche Jombo, Mercy Johnson, Monalisa Chinda, Stephanie Linus and Genevieve Nnaji.
Having interviewed sportsmen on her TV programme Bold Faces, Tricia was honoured at her wedding with the presence of Julius Aghahowa and his wife as well as Jay Jay Okocha’s wife Nkechi.
