Harvest of babies: Celebrities welcomes 15 bundles of joy in 5 months -Venita Akpofure


Model, video vixen and actress are the names formerly associated with this refreshingly beautiful lady, Venita Akpofure. Now, you can add mother to them after the Delta-born beauty announced on instagram on April 9, 2015, she had delivered a baby girl. She even added her hubby’s name to hers – she’s now Venita Akpofure-Tarka, a complete transformation!

Rumours of her pregnancy filled the news space when she was spotted with what seemed to be like a baby bump in November last year. She eventually confirmed it, saying: “Yes, I am pregnant and happy about it.”

She spoke in an interview with ENCOMIUM Weekly about what it is like being a mother.

How does it feel to be a mother?

It is quite confusing in a beautiful way. You are overwhelmed with feelings of awe and compassion. You become incredibly protective. You feel blessed and very passionate about everything in this world that is around your bundle of joy. But if I had to sum it up in a sentence, I feel complete.

What went through your mind when your daughter was placed in your arms?

I was relieved because the delivery experience was successfully complete when the midwife placed her on my chest. I was intrigued.

Instantly, I wanted to know everything about who she is in three seconds which was obviously impossible. I was very tired yet very excited to meet her and eager to bond and begin our journey together.

How are you rocking motherhood?

As best as time allows me. So, hopefully quite well.

What is the best thing about being a mother?

Having a daughter, and seeing myself through her eyes.
