A few months ago, popular Nollywood actress, Nse Ikpe-Etim revealed that due to a medical condition known as Adenomyosis, she will not be able to bore children. She further disclosed that as a result of the medical condition, her doctors advised that she has her uterus – otherwise known as womb – removed.
Although the actress claimed the result of the news had sent her into a depressed state, she has since overcome the regrets and moved on with life.
Recently, Nse sat down with the folks at TVC, who went on to ask if she ever plans to adopt a child, if she believes in miracles and many more questions.
When asked if she will ever consider adoption, she said;
No and I am not going to have a conversation about it.
On the possibility of a miracle pregnancy, Nse who got married to her heartthrob, Clifford, in February 2013, said;
Why hasn’t God replaced my missing tooth? I have been asking him for it.
The truth is that I believe that if in religion we use our sense, we would understand it.
You see this thing called miracle, it is a miracle I am alive and that is all I stand for.
About how she has been able to move on with life after her womb was removed, Nse said;
If you broke your tooth today, would you carry on with life?
It is a part of the body.
That is what it is.
So I had a condition, I had to face my fears.
I had an amazing partner who thought we have to chose life and then I went ahead and got treatment for it.
When things happen in life, you get on with it.
We seem to always want to put thing on a scale and weigh it and say this is so heavy, my heart can’t take it.
Of course your heart can.
We are built to be resilient but we chose when to be weak and when to be strong.
It is a choice to be happy in this situation.
The delectable actress further revealed that even though she once regretted she will have no kids, she has since faced her fears and happy with where she is. In her words;
Someone asked me if I had any regrets in an interview years ago and I answered I wished I had kids and I was like I hope to have twins.
Actually right now, no I don’t have any regrets.
I have accepted everything that I have come across in life and eveything has been a learning curve.
It’s either to make me a better or make me achieve greater heights. I am happy with where I am at.
We are happy Nse is happy regardless of this terrible condition.
Continue to stay strong Nse! 💪🏿💪🏿💪🏿
