Popular Nigerian Writer Chimamanda Adichie
and her husband Dr. Ivara Esegee have
welcomed their first child. In a new interview
with Financial Times, the writer revealed that
she and her husband welcomed their daughter
a while back but she decided to keep it
private. According to her,
“This is the first time I’m saying it
publicly. I have a lovely little girl so I
feel like I haven’t slept . . . but it’s also
just really lovely and strange. I have
some friends who probably don’t know I
was pregnant or that I had a baby. I just
feel like we live in an age when women
are supposed to perform pregnancy. We
don’t expect fathers to perform
fatherhood. I went into hiding. I wanted
it to be as personal as possible.
