Popular Nigerian actress, Ini Edo, on Tuesday reacted to the criticism over her decision to have her daughter through surrogacy.
It was earlier reported that Ini Edo confirmed rumours making rounds on social media that she welcomed a baby through surrogacy.
Ini Edo in an interview released last Friday, disclosed that she had a daughter through a surrogate mother about a year ago.
She stated the baby is her biological daughter because her eggs were used to fertilize the child during the process.
The actress stated that she was planning to reveal her child’s identity and talk about her on her first birthday in a few months before the news broke this week.
However, the decision of the Nollywood actress has been condemned in some quarters as some opined that her daughter deserves to know her father.
Ini Edo in her reaction took to her Instagram account to reveal that her daughter’s father is not just a random person.
She charged Nigerians to focus on what is really important in the country and leave her alone.
The actress wrote: “My daughter’s donor is not just a random person doesn’t make him any more than a donor. Now you all can start to focus on what’s really important in this country and leave me alone.”
