Nollywood actor Doyin Hassan has come out to clear the air about the testimony he shared regarding his family’s fertility issue.
Recall that the actor went online recently to celebrate the birth of his child after 24 years of waiting.
He shared photos of himself, his wife, and their newborn, with the caption,
“God is Faithful!!!! After 24 years of toils and struggles. He came forth at last!!!! Our beautiful baby girl is a great testimony of God’s faithfulness.”
This sparked a ton of sweet reactions on social media, with many congratulating the couple on the arrival of their bundle of joy after 24 years.
In light of this, Doyin has shared a follow-up post to clarify that he was the one who waited for 24 years before welcoming his first child, not his wife.
He explained that he lost his first two wives to the cold hands of death before remarrying his current wife in 2020, with whom he has welcomed a baby girl.
“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 WOMEN 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 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.”
