I Don’t Have It All Figured Out Yet, But ... Damilola Celebrates Son On His Birthday...

Damilola Adegbite took her excitement to Instagram as she celebrated her son, Brian on his 5th birthday today August 31.

The Nollywood actress shared a beautiful photo with her son on the social media platform while also recounting some challenges she faced since she began the journey of motherhood. Recounting how she got seperated from her son at birth and at one of the most trying times of her life, Damilola promised to love and protect her son always.

The prayer-filled heartfelt birthday message reads in full;

MY BABY IS 5!!! It seems just like yesterday. At “chuck e cheese” with some friends. Feeling so restless and uncomfortable. Not knowing you were much closer than we expected. The unbearable pain birthing you. Those seconds we couldn’t hear your heart beat. The nurses tried to stay calm but I could tell they were worried. And then all of a sudden, the little thump thump of your heart filling the hospital room.

Separated from you for days while you were in the ICU. Separated from you again during one of the most trying times of my life.... Truth is, maybe we didn’t get off on the greatest of starts. Motherhood is a journey. A learning process.

It’s been 5 years and I don’t have it all figured out yet. But I promise to love and protect you. To fight for you, to be your pillar of strength and support. To walk closely by your side every single day. To bring you up in the way and doctrines of the Lord. You will grow up to be a fine man. You will be a bright light in your generation. A king amongst men. I decree and declare God’s blessings and favor on you every single day of your life. Mummy loves you so so much Brian. Happy birthday to you my Son.

Damilola Adegbite welcomed her son with her ex-husband, Chris Attoh in 2014. Their 2014 marriage was however shortlived as it crashed in 2017.
