Nollywood Stars, Funke Akindele-Bello and Femi Adebayo have already started receiving congratulatory messages on the arrival of their babies. While Akindele-Bello was delivered of a set of twins, Adebayo’s wife had a baby boy.
Interestingly, Funke Akindele-Bello and Femi Adebayo are long standing friends. And apart from being well respected movie stars, one other thing they have in common is that they are both trained lawyers; though Akindele-Bello has never practiced. In what seems a design of fate, Funke Akindele-Bello became a mother for the first time about the same time her old friend welcomed his first son. To cap it up, all children were delivered in the United States.
Funke Akindele-Bello found a way to hide her pregnancy from the public glare, especially the social media apparently because a pastor had once prophesied that she would never have a baby.
Both stars also share one other similarity; Funke’s husband, JJC has children from past relationships while Femi Adebayo too has beautiful daughters from his former marriage. Though both men are savouring the joy of fatherhood afresh in their not so new marriages.
Adebayo announced that arrival of his son via his Instagram page with a message “Our Eagle has landed and our world is complete. I’m super excited… Our bundle of Joy is here”.
On her part, Funke Akindele-Bello shared a Tope Alabi and TY Bello’s video with a message #thankyoulord. It was the song in which Tope Alabi described the experience of being called barren before God changed her story.
In a congratulatory message, gospel singer, Tope Alabi wrote “I am super excited and full of joy about the end year testimony. May God keep and bless the babies in Jesus mighty name. I am happy”.
