I Wasn’t Ashamed – Nse Ikpe-Etim Opens Up On How She Felt When She Realized She Couldn’t Bear Children
Nse Ikpe-Etim, a famous Nollywood actress, opens up about her worst heartbreak, which has to do with her inability to bear a child.
The 47-year-old actress previously stated that she had her womb removed as a result of a medical problem that threatened her life.
In an interview with Chude Jideonwo, Nse Ikpe-Etim explained that the decision did not make her feel ashamed but rather inept.
“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.”
