In May 2012, a popular magazine, National Enquirer exclusively reported that sexy actress, Ini Edo was pregnant. The news item, which went viral, was received with joy by teeming fans of the Nollywood diva.
This may have been as a result of tongues that have wagged after the actress married her heartthrob over three years ago without a child. So, the pregnancy news was met with joy by her fans.
But in a twist, Ini Edo took to her website to deny the news. She claimed that the story was false and that there was no iota of truth in it.
According to her post on her website then, "Heard some people want to send me on nine-month compulsory leave? Not true yet. Disregard the rumour. I will let you know when it happens.
"Meanwhile, there is something cooking I will let you know soon, lets keep our fingers crossed. Peace,"
she disclosed in May 2012.
Soon after she denied the story, her fans vented their anger on the media. They labelled the Nigerian press as carrying untrue stories. Some said the media do such stories in order to boost sales (print media) or increase traffic (online media).
Recall that also in May 2012, her friend and colleague, Uche Jombo denied a reported marriage story about her. She even went on Twitter to deny the story. Uche then wrote that the media were trying to force her to marry. She later told her fans not to believe everything they read in the media.
But few days later, precisely on May 16, Uche secretly married her American lover, Kenny Rodriguez. The news shocked many due to the fact that Uche had reportedly denied being getting married just few days before her marriage.
Just few weeks ago, news went viral again that Ini Edo has confirmed being pregnant. This was reportedly confirmed to a magazine, E24-7 in a interview with the paper. Though this news has also been welcomed by her fans, but some sections of the fans are angry with Ini over her initial denial of the pregnancy news two months ago.
According to an anonymous fan, "why do Nigerian celebrities like denying news stories only for them to later come out true? They lie a lot. I am beginning to dislike most of them."
Another fan told Nigeriafilms.com
, "Ini Edo is such a bloody liar! Why did she deny the pregnancy news initially? Was she trying to make ridicule of the Nigerian media?"
"I am beginning to get pissed off with Ini Edo, she is a big liar. She made her fans believed the initial story was false. Is being pregnant not a good thing anymore? They can't try this with the British media. You don't insult the British or American media and go away with it that way. They would have run down your career. I think the Nigerian media need to do that to most celebs that ridicule them," another angry fan told Nigeriafilms.com

Sincerely, I will and can never blame these celebs for denying somethings. Must everyone alws know abt dem. Let dem be for Christ sakes. Now dat she has let U know, na wahala. Oh! May God have mercy. Let dem be d ones to tell U, dis is it. Most of dem even if am d one wouldnt want somebody else spreading news out wen am not ready to have it published. And pls dnt say dats wat makes dem popular. Even Tom Cruise had to equip his house wt every available and needed medical equipments just to shone d paparazzis and to avoid dem prying his privacy. Congrats my laidi.

I'm not Ini's fan but i stand 1000% by her,even in Hollywood,no actress own up to being preg till they can't hide it anymore,except of course the ones that have given up hope of ever getting preg ,( they tell anyone one cares to listen) Others always lie to the press,every single one of them.
Senior | 8/6/2012 3:16:17 AM |
Osaremen/NFC,you really tried so hard to paint INI "dirty" by this your useless crap. you wrote it with so much biasiness to the beauty. you really struggled to make the fans hate her.you're derrtemined to tarnish her pretty name, you truly endeavored to soil her name she'z built by herself,you undoubtedly forced the public to look at her as a liar,BUT,let me assure you;no matter what you do,INI is a darling to sooooo many. INI is naturally loved. She is simply irresistible. Go,INI,go Princess we love you beauty. YOu will always be a star to many of us LOVE YOU BEATIFUL
Nneoma | 8/6/2012 4:11:10 AM |
I totally agree with Sly, am not Ini Edo's fan too, but pregnancy is not something one go abt announcing to d public. So i see nothing wrong in her Shielding her early pregnancy in secrecy. Evn non celebs are always careful when it come to pregnancy discussions especially at d early stage. Abeg make una free d chic abeg.

The Enforcer | 8/6/2012 5:16:03 AM |
It is the norm for women to hide their pregnancy until after the first three months according to my wifey. Apparently, it is a general belief that if the pregnancy survives the first three months then all is ok. Abgi, make them leave HR loveliness Ini alone o, otherwise I go sue all motor mouth wey wan run the queen down.

"Meanwhile, there is something cooking I will let you know soon, lets keep our fingers crossed. Peace"
This quote is from Ini Edo and is confirmatory enough. But too nosy fans want her to spell everything out. You all said she married 3 years ago. In our culture, you do not carry news about pregnancy. People see it when the belly starts to protrude, and that is it. Must we sheepishly follow everything done by the Western world? You know how precious this pregnancy is for her and how she is going to jealously guide it? Please Ini Edo fans, if you really love her, do not get mad with her, try to show understanding and pray for her safe delivery. We are talking of Nigeria celebrity, not American celebrity. Things are done differently in the two cultures and let Ini remains Nigerians. Have you guys forgotten that her husband is a Bini man, home of Nigeria culture? Let us put the knowledge of our society in perspective in handling our situation. Reply this thread

Last year I attended a premiere in New York City and Ini Edo did not show up and I heard with my own ears when Desmond Elliot told the crowd that she was in the hotel sick because she was pregnant. If she is not, they are all liars and cons to get people money at these premiers. Beautiful Jenny was there and that was a bigger plus for me. Reply this thread
