In February 2016, Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh, 31, gave birth to her first child, a bouncing baby boy.

When Tonto Dikeh got married and was pregnant last year she was really happy but being a mum has changed everything for the actress, she is beyond ecstatic. Not too long ago, at least a couple of years ago Tonto Dikeh was known more for being controversial and grabbing headlines for the wrong reasons.

Tonto Dikeh was notorious for being the bad girl of Nollywood and her antics. Hardly a month went by without the actress going on an Instagram fight or ranting on social media. Since she’s gotten married Tonto Dikeh has taken it easy. Now that she is a mother Tonto Dikeh is the total opposite of her public persona.

Instead of going wild online Tonto Dikeh now gushes about the joys of breastfeeding her son. “After birth this is the most fulfilling task/Duty. Having the knowledge that you produce food so great for your Child..Am so greatful for Gods awesome miracle.. If you have never been here you wldnt understand the joy my heart holds..
