Nigerian comedian and filmmaker, Ayo ‘AY’ Makun on Saturday hailed his wife, Mabel, for ignoring naysayers concerning the birth of their second child.
The actor, on his verified page, celebrated his wife for all her sacrifices towards welcoming their second child, Ayomide.
AY had announced the birth of their new baby, named Ayomide, who came into the family 13 years after they had their first child, Michelle.
The couple, who tied the knot in November 2008 has a 13-year-old daughter, Michelle, as their first child.
Appreciating his wife, AY said, “The word ‘sacrifice’ should be a common theme when we think of motherhood.
“First, our women/mothers sacrifice their bodies for nine months by putting on weight that feels unflattering and uncomfortable, losing their appetite for food they once enjoyed, not being able to have a glass of their favourite wine at will, and of course all the excruciating aches and pains that comes long before labour begins.
“@realmabelmakun, no one knows our story in the last 13 years like we do. But I especially want to thank you for everything.
“Thank you for ignoring all the naysayers. Thank you for taking time off your numerous interior jobs at home and abroad to prepare for Ayomide.
“Thank you for sacrificing all your endorsements/influencing opportunities in the last one year.
“Thank you for the sacrifice of your precious time, your energy, your sanity, your sense of identity and everything else that makes you the true queen that you are.
“More importantly, we thank God for the joy and beauty of motherhood that overwhelms all our challenges.”
