Exclusive: Chris Attoh & Damilola Adegbite are Expecting | Wedding Postponed



Chris Attoh & Damillola Adegbite - January 2014 - BellaNaija

And the good news keeps coming in. A huge congratulations to Chris Attoh and Damilola Adegbite who are expecting their first child.

The ex “Tinsel” co-stars got everyone saying “Aww…” when they announced in January 2014 that they are a couple. They later revealed they’ll be tying the knot this April.

We sighted the big screen beauty sporting a baby bump, but we wanted to check with the couple before confirming the obvious joyful news.

BN placed a call to Chris Attoh who was more than graceful to accept and direct us to his publicist Rosie of Waka Agency in Ghana.

“Yes, they are expecting” she exclusively tells BN.

Rosie also gave us an update on their wedding; Damilola and Chris have decided to postpone the wedding till later this year or early next year.

Dami wants “a fairytale wedding” she said.

We can’t wait for the baby and the wedding. Cheers!

    Good news! Congrats to the couple.

      Welcome to the 21st century where having a baby before wedlock is widely celebrated. And yes I couldn’t shut up about it 🙂

      Yep, no rules, no boundaries….

      It’s really quite simple and convenient for couples in a fast paced industry to avoid unnecessary complications after marriage. You’ll have enough time to do a DNA test and make sure the baby has the right Daddy before tying the knot. Nothing to it

      Don’t you think what you believe basically applies to you? I could believe something different…like the word wedlock is so…Victorian England long time ago old 🙂 But to you it’s relevant and fresh. No wahala, live and let live.

      Don’t mind them. mcheew…that’s the new abnormality they are trying to stamp in young people’s minds. Nobody is saying “hang them” or “ban them from the church” but please don’t come out here and celebrate it like it’s the way to go.

    Couldn’t they have gotten married first before having the baby?

      April 9, 2014 at 10:28 pm

      How dare you??!! Who does that anymore? When Kanye and Kim et all other Hollywood celebs do it…do you ask them such silly queshuns?? Abeg stop being so sanctimonious and judgy….. We Nigerians are still so backward. Well, I leave you in the hands of the rest of my fellow 21st century liberated folks jare….

    • Gilda

      April 9, 2014 at 11:40 pm

      so Kim n Kanye are doing it so it should be normal eh? that’s what’s wrong in this social media age where the badder you are the more popular you become. Babies out of wedlock is wrong whether its done by the Queen or the village house help. we seem to glorify everything these days bcos we’ve become over civilized and ‘liberated’. Lets be careful what we ‘support’ in these end days ooo.

    • straight4ward

      April 10, 2014 at 12:52 am

      You should be ashamed of yourself…Madame 21st century liberated folk…so your role models are Kim and Kanye? I feel really sorry for you and your future generation. You are lost and need to find your way back to where you came from and for crying out loud, stop keeping up with the Katrashians!!!

      April 10, 2014 at 11:12 am

      You are usually one of my favourite commentators but today mehn I think that’s the most senseless thing you’ve ever said.

    • Carliforniabawlar

      April 10, 2014 at 2:46 pm

      Sarcasm: the ability to insult others without them knowing it….hehehe…oh!! heres that awkward moment when your sarcasm is so advanced, folks actually think you’re stupid. Full.Stop.

    • Carlifprniabawlar

      April 10, 2014 at 3:07 pm

      @Idak (yea, i know its you sweetheart) It all happened when you left us….omg!! I was so distraught!! I thought to myself..”of what use are my values & sensibilities if Idak would leave us hanging on BN…only to come back and change his name to onye ara!”

    • Donald-Landon-24 (formerly known as Donald-Landon before someone purloined it)

      April 10, 2014 at 3:18 pm

      I didn’t need to finish reading your comment to know it was sarcasm. Unfortunately some folks wouldn’t be able to decipher sarcasm even if it is slapped in front of their faces.

    • Jennifer

      April 10, 2014 at 3:41 pm

      So because Kim and Kanye did it, it automatically makes it ideal and the right thing to do? Never knew they were your role models and didn’t know your analyzed things in that manner. I’m so disappointed by your comment. I used to think you were very intellectual.

    • jcsgrl

      April 10, 2014 at 6:09 pm

      Lol ure mean!!! How this ppl could not detect sarcasm is beyond me. Even your hashtag ni was a giveaway and aww you opened idak’s yansh….he he he he he

    Congratulations to them…

    No they could not wait (people can judge eh like say them be saint)…. whatever (sex) they did am sure many are doing it today with condom or aborting the baby so just leave people to live their life..

    I got pregnant too and had to post pone my wedding, in a way its good sef so we both know we can have a baby rather than end up with someone who cannot and then find out later…

    God gives children so rejoice with them, so many are married for years and still looking… Thank God for them and move on..

    • Person

      April 10, 2014 at 6:35 am

      I am happy for you o! But you mean you would have left your hubby/wife if they couldn’t have children? Na wa o. I hope the other party knew your love was conditional on having children.

    • oj

      April 11, 2014 at 3:03 pm

      sorry to say this, but a lot of women who had the same mentality as you do are now single mothers and the fathers of their children are busy impregnating other women or getting married to other women. i would never advise any lady to even sleep with a man they are not married to, not to talk of getting pregnant for him. what if u get pregnant, he marries u, unfortunately u lose the baby and find it difficult to get pregnant again? he will surely dump u for another woman.

    As usual, we make an ish out of every picture. Who amongst u isn’t fornicating?? Jus bcos u dont have a child as a subject means u are free of guilt?? Biko, allow them celebrate. No one made comments on Psquare twin, suddenly Damilola n Chris is ur newest scape goat?? Get a life pple

    • Donald-Landon

      April 10, 2014 at 4:16 am

      I am not fornicating and proud to say it!! :-p

    • No wonder

      April 10, 2014 at 5:06 am

      because people are fornicating does not make it right. The fact that people cheat in exams does not make it right or do you cheat in your examinations? Or we should not condemn any ill in the society because people do it. I lie sometimes but does that make lying good?

      I am not one to judge or condemn. Heck I am even happy any time anyone is pregnant since I have a sister that is looking up to God for one. I am just calling you out on the line of your argument. That is completely wrong.

      Congratulations are in place, Dami.

      Girl speak for yourself…just because you are fornicating does not mean everyone else is. Some of us have made the CHOICE to abstain from sexual immorality.

    psquare twins did things the wrong way and if my memory serves me correctly ppl made quite a deal about it…what is right is right what is wrong is wrong…no matter how pretty a picture we want to paint


    April 10, 2014 at 3:13 am

    Now you can understand when i said Celebs no longer wait on the lord for the fruit of the womb, they rather confirm the if the tree can produce before they say I DO!! Nobody Wants To Wait For 5 years and Above In Search The Fruit, Not Knowing That There Wife To Be Has Played KOSO with her womb, hence TESTRUNING before they buy!!

    Fairytale wedding? Then why couldn’t she wait before getting pregnant? Congrats anyway

  24. Author Unknown

    April 10, 2014 at 5:01 am

    Not sure what expecting a baby has to do with postponing the wedding unless someone is using that as an excuse not to get married. Anyway, that’s their problem but congratulations are in order. And to all these hypocritical commenters talking about fornication and hollywood. Hollywood has nothing on Nigerians when it comes to fornication and adultery, and it’s not a ‘nowadays’ thing either.

    • Carliforniavawlar

      April 10, 2014 at 2:59 pm

      More like congratulations are in reverse other…..yea, you are right, agbere in Nigeria is as old as the country itself. But the flaunting of the ‘consequences is not though…that boldness is definitely ‘borrowed’ from Hollywood.

  25. Jennyfromtheblock

    April 10, 2014 at 5:13 am

    So what?How do you know they did not marry secretly?People need to mind their business. Let them live!Can they live?lolol Get a life people.

    Ah chris you fall for my hand. You should have used condom

  28. Igbeyinadun

    April 10, 2014 at 11:16 am

    I did not fornicate before getting married, and i am proud i got married as a virgin. As No Wonder said, because people are doing things wrong doesn’t make it right my dear.

  29. Lol

    April 10, 2014 at 1:17 pm

    Lol congrats to them but they could have waited. Doesn’t mean the baby isn’t special, it’s just morally right to wait till they got married. Wait but why can’t they just rush a quick court wedding in.

  30. Omo1

    April 10, 2014 at 1:37 pm

    And they couldn’t wait till after marriage??!! And no body should damn call anyone hypocrite because we thought they should be married before pregnancies start coming. That is the way it should be!

  31. Nanayaa

    April 10, 2014 at 2:13 pm

    Hold up? Are all u guys criticizing them NOT having sex before marriage? That’s the right order huh? So should they have aborted the baby or what? If u are Unmarried and STILL a vigirn then u can comment. No one said it was the right order of things but if it happens it happens. At least someone loves her and marrying her and accepting responsibility of his child! just stop being hypocrites. Congratulations Chris and Dami!

  32. FunkyW

    April 10, 2014 at 3:41 pm

    Congrats Dami and Chris!!

    Even if you’re unmarried and still a virgin, TO EACH HIS OWN!
    Many people abort pregnancies just to avoid wagging tongues, let their conscience be the judge of whether it is morally/socially right or wrong to have a baby. Everyone should mind their business especially regarding pregnancy, if the couple did not abstain from sex or protect themselves, you can’t start judging/crying over split milk when the woman is pregnant (unless you prefer abortion)
    I know a couple that aborted their pregnancy before marriage because they were so scared of their parents, now they have one child and have been trying in vain to have more.

    Nigerians are really good at judging……..such harsh comments, do
    u think these guyz re bothered aba ur judgmental thoughts. u would prefer abortion to having a child.even if u re holier than them,the Bible teaches us not to judge.if u re bothered and u think u re doing the right thing, y don’t u pick a bible ask of their residential address and go preach to them, this is the best thing to do.Love ur neighbour as ur self.

    April 10, 2014 at 6:39 pm

    pregnancy before wedding, wedding before pregnancy….peeps should just learn to mind their business and leave people the heck alone! most of you guys spitting holy fire here, we can’t count the number of babies(foetus) doctors have helped you flush down the WC. someone has gotten pregnant, they’re doing the honourable thing by keeping it and you guys are here condemning! would you rather they tow the part of abortion? when i see what my fellow ladies are doing these days, i totally support any man who wants them to get pregnant before he says I DO! some don born all the pikin inside their belle put for toilet….i mean, what do you say of a lady who’s had 13 abortions? 13 for God’s sake! i’ve told my younger brother, if she’s not a virgin, she’s so getting pregnant before marriage! we don’t want stories that touch! if she’s a virgin and she has problems getting pregnant, then we know it’s an act of God/ nature not because she’s flushed her womb out. this is Africa biko and say whatever you may, babies are an integral part of a marriage! it may not seem all important now but ten years down the line, it will. and to my sisters too, if you can, please be sure he’s not suffering from low sperm count or any other count that may hinder him from getting you pregnant. knowing and deciding to go ahead with the wedding is better than not knowing. you don’t want someone telling you “honey pls sleep with the laundry man so you can get pregnant and we’ll pay him off”! mba!

    Congrats to Chris and Dammy, but they should have waited by using protection, nobody’s tryna be a saint here(am not), but its morally wrong on all kinds of levels and for the commentators saying its okay, #lipssealed for una……

  37. Babe

    April 10, 2014 at 11:44 pm

    Chris and Dami; as things have turned out this way, just do brad and Angie style … Just continue building your family.. Wedding no longer a necessity.

  38. Mercee

    April 11, 2014 at 10:33 am

    To those talking about having babies first as proof that a woman still got her womb intact need to remember this; God created marriage and his laws about how to go about it remains the standard. Anything less is sin.

    Who has even thought of the fact that probably Chris Attoh’s people believe in “taste and see”.maybe he is among the category of men who want to be convinced that a woman’s womb is not a cold oven(May God forgive people with such sense sha).

    April 12, 2014 at 10:34 am

    He who is without sins at all, let him cast a stone…. We all have our cross to bear! Remove the logs in your eyes than the toothpick in another. We should pray we all make heaven regardless of who we are. Our righteous are like filthy rags
