I felt inadequate when I discovered I couldn’t bear children …Actress Nse Ikpe-Etim

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 ash@med. I felt inadequate. I felt inadequate as a woman but not ash@med, which was because of how I was brought up.

Where I’m from we don’t tie sh@me 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.”
