Nollywood actress, Nse Ikpe-Etim has revealed that she and her husband are dog parents for inability to bear children.

According to her, she felt inadequate after she found out that she cannot bear children.


The 47- year- old actress revealed this in an exclusive chat with Chude Jideonwo.

According to her, she had to undergo hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) to have a life again after she was diagnosed with adenomyosis.

When asked if she was ashamed about not being able to have kids of her own, Nse Ikpe-Etim said: “Finding out I couldn’t have children didn’t make me feel ashamed. I felt inadequate.

“I felt inadequate as a woman but not ashamed, which was because of how I was brought up.

“Where I’m from we don’t tie shame to ourselves. Where I was brought up, we live through life fully.”

When asked if she is open to adoption, Nse said: “You never say never, but right now, my husband and I are just dog parents.

“People should be allowed to live, my husband and I are okay right now.”
