Former Beauty Queen, Nike Osinowo’s Battle With Extreme Endometriosis And How God Broke The Jinx Of Childlessness In Her Life

Infertility can feel like real-life torture for the average Nigerian woman because the desire to have biological children is one that keeps burning within her, irrespective of class, education or success that she may have attained in other areas of life.

There is also a lot of social validation that comes with having children in a pronatalist society like Nigeria, but what if you just can’t have your own kids, no matter how hard you try? This was the plight of  Nigeria’s ex-beauty queen, Nike Oshinowo.

The ageless beauty had been very open about her struggles with infertility, stemming from a troublesome case of endometriosis. She told of her many painful and heavy bleeding episodes and how it was almost impossible to have sex let alone enjoy it. When her marriage fell apart, the former beauty queen thought it was all over but God had a different plan.

In  December 2013, Nike’s story lit up the hearts and hopes of many other women when she welcomed her twins via a gestational surrogate in the US.

Below is an inspirational excerpt from an interview she granted after welcoming her adorable twin girl and boy:

“I was out of my marriage and I was lying in bed, talking to my God. ‘Okay, so, here I am, is this what you want for me? Please tell me the next step.

What am I supposed to do now?’ And I fell asleep. As I slept, I felt a tug on the bedding and I opened my eyes, there was nothing and so I looked at the bottom of my bed to see a little child tugging at the bottom of my duvet.

It was a little girl so I carried her, put her on my bed and she played while I slept. She would always come in my sleep and play and then I would put her on my bed, we would play and then we would sleep.

The one day I thought ‘This little girl I keep seeing in my dreams, maybe I can have a child. Maybe it is God’s way of telling me its time. I take my iPad while lying in bed and I start surfing the net all the while thinking I have Endometriosis.

I literally typed in Google search ‘what is the best way to have a child if you have extreme Endometriosis? I hit search and it came out!”

She named her now 5-year-old twins  Faramade Oyinkansola Aduke for the girl and the boy is Abayomi Oluwatobilola Akanni.
