Actress Nse Ikpe Etim Opens Up On How She Felt After Realizing She Can’t Have Kids
Nse Ikpe Etim, one of Nollywood's most outstanding female actors, has spoken up about her feelings when she found she couldn't have children.
After being diagnosed with adenomyosis, a disorder in which endometrial tissue exists within and develops into the uterine wall, the actress underwent a hysterectomy—the removal of the uterus.
In a recent interview with Chude Jideonwo, Nse confessed that she was not ashamed of her condition, but rather felt inadequate as a woman.
In her words, "I didn’t feel shame but inadequacy. I felt inadequate as a woman because every time it was mentioned I would remember." So that’s what it was.
Shame, I’m not ashamed. The least that I would be is but I’m thankful for how I was brought up. We don’t tie shame to ourselves. We live through life fully, and that’s how it is.
My husband had stood by me through all of this because that’s the way it’s supposed to be when people say, "Oh, we need to really be thankful for..." What really happened? This is us. You walk in there as it’s a partnership. What comes good, bad, ugly, it’s us. Just let it be. ”
Nse further mentioned that adoption was on the table for her and her partner, Clifford. The actress further described herself and her partner as "dog parents."
When it comes to adoption, you can never say never, but my partner and I are dog parents. People should be allowed to live. What else? We are okay! And nothing defines you. Not one thing defines you.
