After many attempts of having a baby via other reproductive means, the first daughter of Bola Tinubu, All Progressives Congress (APC) national leader and two-time governor of Lagos, Shade and her husband decided to try the route of surrogacy.
She contracted another woman to bear in her womb, an egg that had been fertilised by her husband’s sperm. The pregnancy reached full term this month and the baby was born on December 25, Christmas day. Speculations that Shade isn’t the actual birth mother of the child rent the air following a PM News report confirming presence at the commissioning of the Johnson, Jakande, Tinubu (JJT) Park three weeks ago without any visible trace of pregnancy.
Folasade reportedly cut the tape for the commissioning of the project in the presence of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode and other dignitaries within and outside Lagos. Folasade who is currently the leader of market men and women in Nigeria, welcomed her son together with her ecstatic husband. Shade and her hubby have been married for many years and had been waiting for a child. The naming ceremony of the baby has been fixed for Monday, January 1, 2018.
Now that Shade has eventually achieved her wish to become a mother, let’s hope she becomes the greatest mother ever. Perhaps she would seek to have more children; after all, it is said that no woman ever wishes to give up motherhood after having once tasted its fruits.
