This week, we have a number of celebrities sharing family news reinforcing the place of the family the as the building blocks of societies. There is also the usual birthday shout out, wedding anniversaries and an emotional tribute to late Chief Matthew Ukey by daughter Omoni Oboli. There’s even a guessing game featured this week. We also made an exception to feature a non-Nigerian celebrity post by Lupita Nyong’o, an Oscar-winning Mexican-Kenyan actress.
1. Faith Irabor’s bundle of joy
This week’s first favourite is the photograph shared by Faith Irabor following the birth of her son. The international journalist shared the good news with fans with the following caption: “Our Lil King has landed!
“Our Lil King has landed!?????????????Thank you, Father, for seeing me through the 9 months journey and for proving again that You’re indeed God! You turned the Labour room to Favour Room and made the journey yours despite all the stunts the devil tried pulling till the very end!
Welcome son???????God got you and will continually make you the apple of his eyes? Let me officially introduce you to our son! He arrived yesterday 27th May 2017 at 5.40am hale and hearty to the Glory of God.”
Congratulations to Faith.
2. Peter Okoye’s lovely family photograph
Another family themed photograph we loved is that shared by Peter Okoye of Psquare. The photograph is of his wife Lola and their two adorable kids Cameron and Aliona. He wrote, “You guys gave me 1 reason to smile? When I have 1000 reasons to cry?????Miss u guys so much?.”
Now that’s making us go mushy.
