Veteran Nollywood actress, Nse Ikpe-Etim, speaks about her deepest heartache, one that has to do with the possibility of being able to bear a child.
It would be recalled that the 47-year-old thespian once revealed that she had her womb taken out as a result of a medical condition that threatened her life.
Speaking on the decision in an interview with Chude Jideonwo, Nse Ikpe-Etim revealed that it did not hit as a thing of shame, rather she felt inadequate.
“Finding out I couldn’t have children didn’t make me feel ashamed. I felt inadequate. I felt inadequate as a woman but not ashamed, which was because of how I was brought up.
Where I’m from we don’t tie shame to ourselves. Where I was brought up, we live through life fully,” she said.
On being open to adoption, Nse said: “You never say never, but right now, my husband and I are just dog parents. People should be allowed to live, my husband and I are okay right now.”
