Nollywood actor, Doyin Hassan has shed light on the birth of his first child, which he welcomed after 24 years.
Kemi Filani reported earlier this week that Doyin Hassan has welcomed his first child with his wife after 24 years of waiting. Sharing photos of him, his wife, and their newborn child in Church for Thanksgiving and dedication, he asserted that God is faithful.
He expressed gratitude to his Maker for the blessing after 24 years of toils and struggles. The actor stated that his daughter is a great testimony of God’s faithfulness.
Many thought the couple had waited 24 years before being blessed with the fruit of the womb but Hassan clarified it in a post on his Instagram page, stating that he is the one who waited for 24 years and not his wife.
He revealed that he married his wife, who is his third wife, in December 2020 after the death of his two wives. He made it clear that his wife was not barren, rather he was the one sharing testimony of his tears and toils.
“I WAITED FOR 24 YEARS AND NOT MY WIFE OLADUNNI:
MY TESTIMONY ABOUT 24 YEARS OF WAITING HAS BEEN MISUNDERSTOOD IN CERTAIN QUARTERS. THE TESTIMONY WAS ABOUT ME AND NOT THE WOMAN I MARRIED. I FIRST GOT MARRIED ON THE 5TH OF JUNE 1999 AND LOST 2 PRECIOUS WOMEN TO THE COLD HANDS OF DEATH OVER TIME. I MARRIED ADEOLA DOYIN-HASSAN IN JUNE 1999 AND LOST HER 8.5 YEARS AFTER (FEBRUARY 20 2008 ON HER BIRTHDAY) I WAITED FOR 2 YEARS BEFORE I REMARRIED BOLANLE DOYIN-HASSAN IN APRIL 2010. BOLANLE PASSED IN DECEMBER 2020 AND I WAITED 1 YEAR 7 MONTHS BEFORE I REMARRIED IN OCTOBER 2022. MY NEW WIFE WAS NOT BARREN FOR 24 YEARS. I WAS THE ONE WHO SHARED A TESTIMONY OF MY TEARS AND TOILS FOR 24 YEARS. MEETING OLADUNNI WAS GOD’S REDIRECTION OF MY DIVINE JOURNEY. I HOPE THIS IS CLEAR ENOUGH…GOD’S BLESSINGS”.
