Nigerian film, theatre, and voice actor, Deyemi Okanlawon, who is best known for his roles in the TV Series ‘Gidi Up’ and ‘An African City, was told four years ago that his wife would not be able to conceive.
In a post celebrating his child, Demide’s 4th birthday, the Nollywood star revealed that he and his wife were childless for three years despite all efforts to have their own child. After the fruitless efforts, doctors confirmed to them that they could not have children but he had a strong conviction that they would have their own children and it came to pass.
Sharing the testimony, the super excited dad posted an adorable picture of himself and his child as a newborn and wrote;
”After 3 yrs of trying and then finally being told we couldn’t conceive your mum came home crying. I held her close and let her cry then when she was done I tilted up her face, looked her straight in the eyes and told her “That’s not what God told me! We will have our own children!”.
On this day, 10th July, 4 years ago I woke up to the cry of a child my heart swelled with love and pride… and I understood for the first time the hearts of both my heavenly and earthly fathers towards me! Happy 4th Birthday Demide…
I’m super proud to call you son. Luv, DeyemiTheDaddy p.s. @damilolaokanlawon see how I fulfilled my promise of giving you beautiful sons.”
