Nollywood screen goddess Ini Edo has welcomed a baby girl.

The movie star shared the big news during a chat with popular blogger, Stella Dimoko Korkus.

"Yes I do have a daughter and I had her through surrogacy. The Eggs are mine and so genetically she's my blood. I chose this path to fulfil my dream of becoming a mother," she said.

"I still have a good number of eggs frozen in case I decide to do surrogacy again or carry my baby myself. Who knows."

When asked about the identity of the father of the child, the movie star revealed that she opted for a donor just to avoid the drama associated "between a mother and a father over a baby in public forums."

"I opted for a donor for me and my baby's peace of mind. Another major reason I opted for a donor is that it scares me so much when I see banter and controversies between a mother and a father over a baby in public forums or when I see the man insisting he wants his child if things don't work out between both parties," she said.

Edo said the joy of motherhood is something she's grateful for.

"It is an awesome feeling and experience and as I watch my daughter grow every day, I am in awe of the miracles that God has sent my way and I am so thankful and grateful to be my daughter's mother," she said.

The movie star said she would recommend surrogacy for anyone finding it difficult to conceive.
