Babies are a true source of joy, especially new ones. Just ask any proud parent! This explains why parties are thrown for them – baby showers to herald their delivery and naming (or christening) to welcome their arrival.

And in just five months (that’s from March to July, 2015), the entertainment industry in Nigeria has already seen a baby boom with not less than 15 new tots welcomed.

From one-time Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria, Adaeze Yobo; actress and producer, Uche Jombo-Rodriguez and Warri-born singing queen, Omawumi; to young fathers, Davido, IK Ogbonna and D Prince – celebrities have been basking in their new roles (that’s for some) as parents.

ENCOMIUM Weekly takes a look at the celebrities who welcomed their patter of tiny feet in 2015…


From starring in the MNet-produced long-running soap, Tinsel to welcoming a baby boy, one of Nollywood’s leading men, Gideon Okeke has gone the full circle.

The A Place in the Stars act raised not a few eye brows when on March 16, 2015, he announced he had a baby boy from a yet-to-be-known baby mama.

Posting on instagram, he wrote with a photo of the baby’s feet, “Full Circle. Forever Thankful. “SummerTime” #GodIsGood #DaddyDuties.” The revelation did not only surprise many, but broke the hearts of ladies who may have been throwing admiring glances at the hunk. The proud father has

clearly been enjoying his time as a parent as he posted another photo of his tot wearing a similar expression on his face to his, and wrote ”mini me”.
