Nigerian singer, Bankole Wellington popularly known as Banky W has revealed how he and his wife considered surrogacy after many failed IVF.
He disclosed this on Monday during his tell-it-all video on his Youtube channel.
“Everyday one rumor or the other about us on the internet, some said I was impotent or my wife was barren. Sometimes these people are just projecting their hurt on us.
“We had IVF before we lost the twins. In all, we had three failed IVFs.
“We considered surrogacy and had a surrogate at the time but we decided we were not going to do anything anymore to get a child,” he said.
He revealed that he told his wife to let God have his way as he consider adopting a child.
“We decided to stay one year without trying anything and trust God or adopt if that’s what God wants. Within that year of trusting God, we got good news,” he added.
Speaking on her struggle with pregnancy, Adesua Etomi said, “Some said I’m barren, you did something with your womb. I heard all sorts and every single time I heard that i just went back to God telling him to show himself, since I serve him faithfully, he should let them know I serve him. I kept telling God they are mocking you not me.
“I felt like God was not coming through, it was like a monthly breakdown. We had multiple failed IVF, I have veins in my hand that no longer work.
“IVF is a tasking thing emotional, physically and very tough for any woman.
“During that period of IVF, I was bloated and people thought I was pregnant but it was really a tough period for me. The second IVF did not work at all.”
