Reports from Nollywood say actress Nse Ikpe Etim is expecting a baby in a few months time.
Nigeriafilms.com reported that “the Akwa Ibom state-born beautiful actress is pregnant and is excited about the pregnancy.”
Nse Ikpe Etim who got married to her abroad-based high school sweetheart, Clifford Sule a few weeks ago, told her colleague she is suffering from early pregnancy symptoms.
This was revealed in Bayelsa State at the recently concluded Africa Movie Academy Awards ceremony.
According to Nollywood insiders, pregnant Nse Ikpe Etim is in her first trimester. Though she revealed this exciting news a bit early, many are wishing her safe delivery when the time comes.
On Valentine’s Day this year, she had a court marriage with her long time on-off-on UK-based lover, Clifford Sule.
After that they went honeymooning in the US.
But some news reports from her country at the time have criticised the move, citing traditional reasons.
Nigeriafilms.com for instance reported: “The little I know about our tradition is that court weddings are ‘mere’ formalities which enables either of the parties to official sue for divorce if the need ever arises and still come out with a fair deal.”
“Nse and Clifford are not traditionally married according to native rites…They’ve not done their Traditional Marriage. They are yet to be joined together by the pastor(s) of their church and pronounced as husband and wife, as the Bible instructs,” the website reported.
The report further said the couple’s traditional/white wedding should take place later this year.
But media reports afterwards said they finally came do the traditional marriage.
Current questions people are asking is whether the pregnancy was the reason they were forced to get married?
