Nollywood actress, Nse Ikpe-Etim, has said she felt inadequate as a woman when she found out she could not bear children of her own.
The 47-year-old thespian said this in a recent interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo.
Recall that Nse had earlier disclosed she had to undergo hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) to have a life again after she was diagnosed with adenomyosis.
“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.
Asked if she is 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.”
